We don't give much thought to the Nike Windrunner jackets in our lives, but - believe it or not - there was a time when we had to live without them. In celebration of their foremost apparel icon, Nike has created a visual history of the Windrunner, beginning with its design in the late '70's and its continued evolution over the decades into a collaborative canvas for athletic and cultural expression. Seen on everyone from Olympic champions, to distance runners, and spinning b-boys, we're only beginning to know the greatness of the piece so hang on for a busy 2016: the Year of the Windrunner.
