Since its release around this time last year, the Nike Air Max 270 has earned itself quite the reputation. Having been dressed in countless colour combinations, topped sales charts and took on a variety of materials and fabrics, the trainers mark the coming of a new generation of Air Max that’s spearheaded by the unrelenting advancements in on foot-technology and got the old-timers shaking in their pressurised air repositories. Backed up by the likes of the VaporMax and hungry for its spot in the limelight the 270 has not only already earned its spot in the upper echelons of the Air Max ranks but provided the inspirational base material for fellow young guns, such as the 720 and the 270s more outdoorsy sibling, the Bowfin, to follow in its footsteps.
But, we aren’t here to talk about the Bowfin or the 720, we’re here to tell you about this very nice pair of 270s set to come through our doors very, very soon. Boasting Nike’s biggest air unit to date, this iteration of the instant classic showcases an understated black colourway that acts as the perfect contrasting base layer to amplify the cool blues and sharp whites. Born out of a mish-mash of some of the best elements found evident both in the Air Max 180 and 93, the trainer comes with a knit upper which hugs the shape of the foot and utilises hits of mesh and solid panelling to not only create a streamlined silhouette but retain structure and airflow.
An asymmetrical lacing system helps to enhance the supportive qualities above whilst a dual-density foam sole and aforementioned air unit tucked neatly under the heel give in-step cushioning from below. Finished with garnishes of tasteful branding to the tongue, sides and pull tab, the trainer captures that highly in demand, ultra-technical sporty aesthetic we all can’t seem to get enough of.
