The NIKELAB X STONE ISLAND THE YEAR OF THE WINDRUNNER COLLECTION kicks off the celebration of the iconic piece of apparel.

The iconic WINDRUNNER was designed by the brand’s first apparel designer back in 1978 and was revolutionary, with its raglan sleeves and 26-degree chevron yoke. The jacket became the first piece of NIKE apparel worn by athletes at track and field trials before, and after competition. Over the years it has gone on to become a staple of both the medal stands and the city streets. To kick off the commemorative releases the WINDRUNNER will be overhauled by STONE ISLAND, who are famous for fabric innovation, engineering and dyeing techniques.

The result is a fusion of the two brands’ aesthetics, with the modern interpretation sporting a water and wind-resistant chevron and hood constructed from Mussola Gommata fabric, whilst Nylon Metal fabric features on the body and PrimaLoft technology on the lining. The signature colour-blocking is given a twist thanks to the garment dyeing process that STONE ISLAND is famous for, with a choice of grey, red, blue, navy, khaki or black. The finishing touch is the diagonal pockets with the zip fastening hidden by nylon tape.

Alongside the six colourways of the jacket there will be a duo of the NIKE KOTH ULTRA MID SI, in a choice of khaki or black, both of which are coated in polyurethane to make them resistant to the elements. The finishing touch for the collection is a pair of drawstring bags, also in khaki or black, with chevron styling to mimic the WINDRUNNER. We have to say we didn’t see this coming, but we are glad it did.

The NIKELAB X STONE ISLAND THE YEAR OF THE WINDRUNNER COLLECTION is scheduled to drop on THURSDAY 17 DECEMBER and will be available via the banner below when the time comes.
