Created by Nike’s first apparel designer in 1978 and revolutionary for its raglan sleeves and 26-degree chevron yoke, the Windrunner jacket became the first piece of Nike apparel worn by athletes at track and field trials before and after competition. This silhouette has been a fixture on medal stands and city streets ever since it was first introduced, worn by everyone from distance runners to breakdancing b-boys. Today, to commemorate this running icon, the Nike Windrunner experiences another first; the fabric innovation, engineering and garment dyeing techniques of Stone Island.

Fusing the aesthetics of both brands, this modern interpretation sports a water- and wind-resistant chevron and hood constructed from the Mussola Gommata fabric, while Stone Island’s proprietary Nylon Metal fabric is featured on the body of the garment. Additional details include a PrimaLoft® lining, the Windrunner’s signature color-blocking reimagined through Stone Island’s garment dyeing process, and diagonal pockets with zip fastening hidden by nylon tape. To top it off, this collaboration also includes a special make up of the Nike Koth Ultra Mid SI sneaker-hiker hybrid and a dust bag.

The NikeLab x Stone Island collaborative Windrunner jacket and sneaker will be available on December 17 at Stone Island flagship stores, StoneIsland.com, select NikeLab retailers, and on Nike.com/NikeLab.
