Nike has officially unveiled the Air Max 270, the next silhouette in Nike’s iconic Air Max range. It’s inspired by the Air Max lineage from the early 1990’s, specifically elements of both the 1991 Air Max 180 and the Air Max 93.
The sneaker features newly-engineered zoned mesh upper for flex and breathability, a molded dual-density foam for a smooth transition from heel to forefoot, and full-volume newly-engineered Max Air unit for greater impact absorption.
Designed by the Nike Air design team, led by Senior Creative Director at Nike Sportswear Dylaan Raasch, the sleek new Nike Air Max 270 is lightweight, form-fitting, and softened for wear, while it’s described by product testers as providing a trampoline-like effect.
In addition, the silhouette’s “270” moniker is derived from the 270 degrees of visible air within its Max Air unit.
