The Nike Air Max Tailwind+ 3 is a mid-range to high-end men's and women's running shoe that builds upon the previous year's Nike Air Max Tailwind+ 2. The primary improvements that the Tailwind+ 3 boasts over the Tailwind+ 2 are its Max Air units at the front and back of the foot rather than basic Air Sole units and its Flywire sidewall technology. Otherwise, the two Tailwinds sport similar features, including a seamless mesh upper and a rubber outsole.

The Air Max Tailwind+ 3's Max Air units provide optimal cushioning and impact protection similar to the lower-end Air Sole units available in other Nike shoes but with greater durability. Its Flywire sidewall technology provides the Air Max Tailwind+ 3 with additional sidewall reinforcement by way of thin strands of Vectran, ensuring optimal support with minimal weight. Meanwhile, the Air Max Tailwind+ 3's rubber outsole promises traction on most surfaces while a flex groove design ensures flexibility and smoother transitions. The Nike Air Max Tailwind+ 3 is available in Black/Black-Anthracite-White, Dark Grey/Black-Neutral Grey-White-Lime, Black/Black-Metallic Silver, White/Black-Neutral Grey-Anthracite-Red, Black/Black-Dark Grey-White and White/Black-Platinum-Dark Grey.
