UPDATE: Nike has taken to its SNKRS platform to officially announce the release of its Air Max Tailwind 4 “Desert Fade.” What was previous rumored as the “Desert Ore” colorway, as mentioned early last month, this retro runner will hit select retailers, like Titolo, as well as Nike.com on May 24 with a price tag of $160 USD.
April 4, 2019: Fresh from Supreme’s rework of the silhouette, Nike has returned to the Air Max Tailwind IV for a new “Desert Ore” release. The stand-out feature of the autumnal design is the gradient orange side panels, with the gradient effect also appearing on purple-to-black piping across the shoe.
The majority of the sneaker is wrapped in the light brown “Desert Ore” shade, which appears on the leather upper. This tonal colorway is offset by hits of “Campfire Orange” and “Team Orange.” Elsewhere, the sneaker comes with two orange Swooshes, off-white midsole and bright orange sole unit.
Take a look at the Nike Air Max Tailwind IV in “Desert Ore” in the gallery above, and expect the sneaker to release via the Nike web store and at select stockists later this month.
As well as dropping the sneaker in “Desert Ore,” Nike recently unveiled a “Navy/Gold” take on the archival silhouette.
