Nike Tailwind

by 5 years, 10 months ago Comments Off on Nike Tailwind
The return of a Nike favorite:
The first shoe to incorporate the Nike Air system, conceived by aerospace engineer Frank Rudy and developed with Nike as from 1977. Two research teams had secretly been working in the New Hampshire factories to solve various problems related with the insertion of compressed air in the intersole: the air capsule had to be stable and without leaks, which implied rethinking the whole production cycle for the application of that particular technology. Those efforts were repaid by the huge success of the first shoes to feature that cushioning system, the Tailwind. Athletes considered them a revolutionary product: many testers even refused to hand back the shoes once they'd completed their trials.
On sale soon at select Nike retailers. More pictures here.

Mishka: How We Made It In America

by 6 years, 2 months ago Comments Off on Mishka: How We Made It In America
The founders of Brooklyn-based label Mishka speak on their new graphic they made for HBO's upcoming season of How To Make It In America, as well as the parallels between the show and their own origins.
Besides getting our name and mugs on TV this is all pretty friggin’ cool considering the show’s plot line basically runs in sync to Greg’s and my own frustration, struggles and adventures in getting Мишка off the ground. For the bumper, the show came to our headquarters and did a short interview segment with Greg, our art director Mike Jones and Myself about the early days of the brand and our inspiration to get it started. Along with this we also did a design for the show which was turned into a tee, raglan and pullover hoodie design that will only be available via Jack Threads for a limited time… and by “limited time” I mean just under three days.
The raglan, hoodie, and tee will be available here. How To Make It In America returns October 2nd. Via
