Air got bigger than ever in 2018 with the launch of the Nike Air Max 270. The eye-catching giant bubble in the heel of the shoe was the first-ever Air Max unit designed specifically for a Nike Sportswear lifestyle sneaker. The first was certainly memorable, as it features a mega-sized 270º shape that wraps around the heel of the shoe. It’s also the tallest Air Max unit ever – for lifestyle as well as performance – measuring in at a whopping 32mm in height.
The massive Air bubble is only half of the story of the Air Max 270. Although it has a thoroughly fresh and new appearance, the design takes heavy inspiration from two of the brand’s most classic Air Max running shoes, the Air Max 180 from 1991 and the Air Max 93 from 1993. Both models are notable for their advancements in visible Air technology as well as their stylish looks, making them perfect sneakers to inspire a modern silhouette that seamlessly blends performance and great looks.
The Air Max 270 has major comfort to match its bold style. Along with the giant Air unit that creates the feeling of walking on clouds all day long, the sole also features dual-density foam throughout the midfoot and forefoot to provide dynamic cushioning. The upper is constructed with a foot-hugging bootie design in neoprene that pairs with the lightweight and breathable mesh body for plush comfort that feels broken in right out of the box. Taking their tech a step further, select styles are constructed in a woven Flyknit upper.
The vintage inspiration and modern technology all come together into one appealing design, set to become a classic itself in the years to come. The Air Max 270 is available now at Foot Locker in a wide range of men’s, women’s, and kids’ styles. From neutral tones to vibrant color combinations, Nike ensures everyone can find their own perfect look for the shoe to enjoy its amazing all-day comfort and cutting-edge style.
