AIR MAX 270
Step forward in a fresh silhouette that pays homage to two Nike Air Max classics with a pair of Air Max 270 shoes. Inspired by the iconic designs of the Air Max 180 and the Air Max 93, the Air Max 270 was originally dubbed the Air Max 273 as a mathematical nod to the sneaker's predecessors. Though not the first Nike shoe to be designed explicitly for lifestyle purposes, the Air Max 270 does own the distinction of being the first sneaker to feature an Air unit that was expressly designed for daily wear instead of running performance. The result is the tallest-ever Max Air heel unit, clocking in at 32mm high and, much like the AM 180, featuring 270 degrees of Air-unit visibility. These new units are manufactured just down the road from the main Nike campus and filled with fresh Oregon air, just like the VaporMax Air units. The sizable Max Air heel plays anchor to a zonal-mesh upper that features multiple mesh patterns for a modern and athletic look, making the Air Max 270 a sneaker ideally situated between the Air Max family's storied past and innovative future.
