Nike’s latest release – the Air Max 270, is the first 100-percent lifestyle Air shoe designed with the same rigor as sport performance but for the demands of all-day wear.
While there have been other Nike Air shoes designed explicitly for lifestyle, beginning with the 1987 Air Safari, they featured air units originally created for running performance. And, that’s what makes the Air Max 270 different.
Taking inspiration from Max 93 and the Air Max 180, the number 270 comes from an internal Nike epithet for the Air Max 93, which referred to the 270 degrees of visibility in the air unit.
At 32mm, it’s the tallest ever Max Air heel. The Air Max 270 unit height offers the biggest heel volume displacement for maximum air cushion comfort.
You can also expect a variety of silhouettes in 2018 — and in a breadth of colour too. Wait for it!
