    Question 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)!!
