After reviving the late ’90s silhouette earlier this year, Nike has been hard at work dropping a wide range of colorways for the iconic Air Max Tailwind 4, including a collab with Supreme that made it onto our Editor’s Picks for best sneakers so far in 2019. Now, Beaverton is expanding on one of its previously-released lines — the “Ripstop” — with two new summer-ready colorways.
Dressed in a cool-toned “Grey” or a light tan “Sandtrap,” both upcoming releases mirror its “Black/Wolfgrey” predecessor with an upper completely reskinned with ripstop material. “MAX AIR” logos adorn the tongue, insole and the heel, with Swooshes on the toeboxes and midfoot. The largely monotone upper rests on a speckled midsole and an outsole of a matching color, complete with “Grey” and “Sandtrap” Air Max units. Tying the entire colorway together are dashes of “Volt” on the heels and the outsole, giving you that vibrant summer pop.
Both the Nike Air Max Tailwind 4 “Grey Ripstop” and “Sandtrap Ripstop” will be available June 27 over at the Nike store, retailing for £144.95 GBP, or roughly $185 USD.
