The Nike Air Max+ Tailwind features A visible Max Air cushioning in both the heel and forefoot along with a mesh upper for breathability of the feet.
If you are a heavy person then the Nike Air Max+ Tailwind may not be the best shoe for you. The visible Air Max units under the heel and forefoot have a tendency to puncture. After the sole is punctured the feel of the show ill be different. The air soles will likely puncture even if you are a lightweight runner.
The benefits of the Max Air units are you still have the support of the inner pillars so even after the air sole unit is punctured and deflated you will still be able to wear them and they will be comfortable. Nikes other popular air bag units are called the Zoom Air. The Zoom Air units do not have the pillars around the air bag so if you have a shoe that has the Nike Zoom Air and it gets punctured your shoes will no longer be able to be wore comfortably as the Zoom Air unit will be flattened and your foot may compress downward enough that you can stretch out the tendon on your heel.
The best Nike Air cushioning for a heavy person is an encapsulated, non visible, air sole such as the Max Air. Zoom Air will not last very long for a heavy person. An non visible encapsulated max air unti will last much longer for heavier people. Even if an encapsulated non visible max air unit gets punctured it will still providee the same amount of support and cushioning.

The durability of the sole is awesome but if you tend to wear your shoes for a year or more you may be disappointed by the durability of the mesh upper. The mesh upper on the Nike Air Max+ Tailwind is designed to keep the foot cool for runners. The mesh upper on this Nike shoe is not designed for the person who wears this shoe everyday for a year. You can wear this shoe as a casual everyday shoe but you need to keep in mind the shoe is designed for running. If the mesh starts to develop holes after 6 months of heavy wear it is NOT a defect of the shoe. It is simply the way Nike designed this shoe. If you want a Nike shoe with an upper that will last for a year or more under heavy use then look at one of the Nike models with a full leather or imitation leather. The full leather uppers are not as breathable as the mesh upper on the Nike Air Max+ Tailwind but the leather upper will last much longer.
If you need a stable yet heavily
cushioned shoe with a breathable upper then the Nike Air Max+
Tailwind may be the shoe for you. You may also be interested in designing your own shoes online.
