The Sun has got his Hanon – Nike Air Tailwind ’79

Haha, because Hanon sounds like Hat On and it’s a bit more sunny at the moment. Enjoying having a play with these new titles. Bit better than just writing the name of the product on its own, I reckon. Might stick with it, might not.

Anyway, these trainers first came out a year after I was born. Or rather in the year after I was born. Not sure what month, not bothered really either. All I know is they look like something Hulk Hogan would wear while being really domineering at a cook-out. That’s what they call barbecues in America.

I’d give these a whirl myself, but I’d avoid hot spitting meat on grills. I’d probably just cross my legs and kick back, maybe have a sausage. Maybe not.

The genuine story here is nothing to do with WWF/WWE stalwarts and more to do with the 1978 Honolulu Marathon, which sounds great doesn’t it? If I’ve got to go for a run somewhere in 1978 I’d like it to be in these shoes, on an island where they’re so laid back they’ve only got 12 letters in their alphabet. It’s all you need really isn’t it?

As the title of this post suggests, these are available quite far from Honolulu, up in Aberdeen. They’ll probably send them all over the world from their website though, so don’t let that put you off.
