Every year, Nike has sneakerheads waiting and wondering what their next big move will be with the Air Max line. Last year they blew everyone away with the new-look Nike VaporMax Flyknit and it was just what the SWOOSH needed. A breath of fresh air in their legendary running line that has dominated year after year. We’re two months into 2018 and for #AirMaxMonth Nike is giving us the Nike Air Max 270. The Air Max 270 unit, and its subsequent shoe, is the first 100 percent lifestyle Air shoe that is designed with the same rigor as sport performance but for the demands of all-day wear. The shoes “270” moniker is derived from the 270 degrees of visible air within its Max Air unit.
The 270 has a form-fitting zoned mesh upper for flex and breathability, as well as a molded dual-density foam layer for smooth transition from heel to forefoot. Featuring the tallest Air Max heel unit in the history of the brand, the Air Max 270 features heavy inspiration from early 90s icons in the Air 180, which featured a cushion unit that was exposed to the ground, and the Air Max 93, Nike’s first half-length Air Max bag. With four colors of the Air Max 270 on the way, you’ll need to start planning which one you must have or you can grab them all.
