The Nike Air Max 270 marks a new chapter in the Air Max line. Taking cues from the series’ rich, 31 year history, it blends standout elements of classic models into the first ever silhouette to feature an Air unit specifically designed for leisure wear rather than athletic performance.
The result is a 270 degree, 32mm high bubble – Nike’s highest yet. The cushioning ‘trampoline effect’ is the perfect solution for anyone who lives in their kicks, with a design that takes inspiration from the classic Air Max 93 and 180 models, bringing history into the modern age.
Made from neoprene and mesh, the trainer is designed so that feet can breathe, even when worn for hours on end. Launching in a selection of bold colourways with more expected to be released throughout the year, so keep an eye out for the latest drops at Footasylum.
The Air Max 270 isn’t just a nod to the sneakers of the past, its innovative design makes it one of the most futuristic-looking trainers you’ll find today. Aside from the air unit, the shoe’s seamless construction and integrated lacing system gives a lockdown fit, leaving no room for discomfort, and providing an uncompromised, glove-like feel.
Last year, the Nike Air Vapormax stole the show with its cutting-edge responsive cushioning. This year, the swoosh is expected to continue the international acclaim, and carry through the phenomenal success of the Air Max 1 back in 1987.
The first wave of the Nike Air Max 270 launches on Friday 2nd March.
