  • nike jackets

    Did anyone have a nike jacket in the early 80's? They were really thin with a hood and they were two colours top and bottom? I had a blue and grey one?

    Mine was black with orange on top that I wore with baggy jeans tucked into white socks with boot-trainers c. 1989. Innocent times...
    Into the 5th Millennium & beyond...!

      I remember a lad having one in school in about 1987, that was also blue and grey.

        Hi escorteclipse, I recall these Jackets well from the 1980s and have some similar jackets now (though not the original versions). I recall them well from the 1980s/1990s with them being called them in general being called/reffered to as WindRunners in the region I was in. Why though I never liked them in the 1980s/1990s now though is a mystery and amazes me thinking of how they used to be.

          My first one, which was in about 85 I think, was dark blue & light blue,
          Plus the Nike emblem was embroided, and the zip was a special Nike one.
          My cousin had one around the same time, blue & grey, with the embroided emblem, but just a standard zip.
          They did start making similar ones a few years back, but they were with standard zips & printed emblems
          I still bought one though, my original is in my parents loft waiting to be passed on to the next generation...............

            I still have my Nike Windrunner hooded jacket, which I bought circa 1985 - and proceeded to wear during that year's snowy winter!!
            It is valuable.

              When watching old footage of programmes from the 1980s - WindRunners looked ace (far better than I recall). Though I'm unsure if it's an accurate assessment but somehow they seem to be a far bigger sucsess story these day's (I guess though this may be to do with the material) though in another way material's are poor-er clothes wise these day's I think - so I am still lost in a way as to my assessment - though I guess it's just a case of a "hunch" people have regards certain things.

              In my day too - the few kids who did don WindRunners wore Tracksuit's Tops over or under them - though I am unsure if it was a trend exclusive to the region I lived in then at the time - as after I think by about 1990/91/92 Sheelsuits seemed to overtake WindRunners I think and one had to loose out or merge into one - as Shellsuits did - more so after Rodney in the OFAH "Miami Twice" Episode made the trend hit bigger heights than ever (combined into one top) I have always felt

                Ah yes, the good old Nike Windcheater, had one in the 80s, was my favourite thing back then, mine was Dark Grey and Light Grey, I really wanted the blue one but they didn't have any when I went to get one and I _had_ to get one there and then.

                Not the warmest jacket ever but they looked cool, and that's what counts.

                  Me too - I really wanted one too Mulletino - these jackets just claimed "style" by just seeing them. Though of course in the 1980s/1990s people had not so much choice about the latest fashionable garment (unlike in later years) before "must have's" extented to about 25/30 desired items of clothing. Luckily though I think it is fair to say (or I hope it may be) to say that the WindRunner/WindCheater has firmly become a legend in it's own right (just like the Leather Jacket did because of John Travolta and Grease)

                    highly true yeah Mullenbtino - but v Today's version - it's like compqaring Cars (either you love new ones/or hate old ones or v versa)!!

                      Still got my dark blue / light blue one which I bought around 1984 somewhere. Can still remember wearing it during snow like we had last week!

                        Cool mate - u shopuld show a pic of it (if you wanted) it'd be nice to see (well great actually) to compare a real-life 80s version to today's effort and see if I ccan be corrected that they are better made these days!!

                          Unfortunately that isn't possible because they don't make them anymore.
                          In fact, they haven't made them for a long time.
                          There are quite a few similarish looking Nike jackets, but the proper ones haven't been made for decades.

                            Sorry Demon - I think you have got a little lost in the thread , as it appeared to me that agfagaevart has/or had one in the 80s

                            If he/she was wiling to share even an 80s picture regardless of if they make them now or not, this'd of helped me, hopefully draw comparisons with the modern day versions. Sorryagain for any confusion

                              Found a picture of me in mine, possibly around 1985...



                              I believe that was the car park near Neptune's Palace in Caister Ladbrokes Holiday Camp.
