The Air Max 270 is Nike’s latest lifestyle shoe that fuses their iconic Air bubble tech with contemporary design elements. Originally taking inspiration from their classic Air Max 93 and Air Max 180 runners, they combined elements of both into a more refined and modern silhouette.
The star of the show though is the newly-engineered Air Max 270 sole unit, as for the first time ever it has been designed solely for everyday comfort in mind and not performance. The visually striking bubbles are huge, at 32mm high with 270 degrees of visibility they are the tallest Air Max units ever.
Throughout 2018, Nike will be deploying the 270 soles in a number of different styles, but the first release is the Air Max 270. Here’s a look at Malaysian model, Erika, wearing the Ocean Bliss colourway.
