March, to most, means the first foray into spring – leaving behind the cold, dark nights and stepping into a (hopefully) warmer climate. But for sneakerheads, it means one thing only: Air Max Month.
With the latest generation of the Air Max family launching on Friday, this year, Nike is taking leisurewear to the next level. Incoming is the Air Max 270, an innovative silhouette that takes elements from classic models and combines them with the first ever Air unit to be specifically designed as leisurewear.
We’ve already given a preview of this much-anticipated silhouette (which you can read, here), and now we’re taking a look at how you can style the Air Max 270, incorporating them into your everyday wardrobe.
Finding the right balance between your outfit and the bright ‘Hot Punch’ heel of the 270s can seem like a daunting task at first glance, but with the help of some light wash denim, there’s no need to worry.
The subtle bluish tones help to highlight the colours of the silhouette, adding vibrancy to your look. Try pairing with the Tommy Jeans High Rise Slim Fit Jean – a light wash, mom style jean with a raw hem and minimal branding, meaning that your new pair of Air Max will still stay centre focus.
Puff It Up
Already billed as a modern classic on the streetwear scene, the new iteration of Nike’s collection draws inspiration from the iconic Air Max lineage. The re-imagining of classic silhouettes can be seen throughout current sneaker trends, so there’s no reason why your look shouldn’t take the same stance.
Take a note of one of the biggest trends of both the 90s and now – the not-so-humble puffer jacket. This streetwear staple is everywhere this season (just take a look at this year’s London Fashion Week highlights), so why not pair yours with the 270s for the ultimate sports-inspired look.
Graphic tees are having a moment, with slogan designs making their way to catwalks and shop windows alike. Taking a leaf out of the graphic print handbook, branded tees are also making their way to the forefront of fashion trends this season.
With help from the likes of the Wood Wood Mondano T-shirt and this Wrangler raglan tee, you can take your 270s to the next level – pairing your new Nikes with some branded tees to make a statement from head to toe.
