Nike Air Max 270 React ENG
Color: Laser Blue/White-Anthracite
Style Code: CD0113-400
Release Date: January 16, 2020
This model’s new engineered, wavy upper wasn’t quirky enough, its retail debut dresses it up in a vibrant outfit simultaneously evoking X-Men’s Wolverine and candy-cane vibes. Originally thought to be exclusive to kids, this iteration of the lifestyle silhouette sports a yellow mesh base accented by “Laser Blue” at the forefoot and leather lace guards. Lace toggles – a feature new to the AM270 – also opt in for the blue hues, though they prefer a translucent finish. The most notable design change brought about by the ENG version are the curved, Air Max Plus-like lines overlaid throughout much of the toebox, midfoot, and heel in a striped gradient. Down under, however, the story stays the same from last year as the model’s hybrid-cushioning remains intact, though donning this pair’s cotton candy-like palette.
