The Air Max Icons: Nike Air Max 270

The series wouldn’t be complete without the latest addition to the Air Max fam; the 270. Nike’s Air Max 270 is fresh in and boy, are we into this silhouette!

The Air Max 270 is famous for being designed as the first 100% lifestyle Air shoe. The sneaker is influenced by the Air Max 93 and 180, and features the tallest ever MAX AIR HEEL UNIT – standing at 32mm tall! This unit offers the biggest heel volume displacement and provides maximum Air cushion comfort!

Did you know? The 270 was the nickname for the 93 amongst Nike employees when it was in test phase, due to the 270° visible Air unit.

Built with a bootie-style mesh or Flyknit upper, the Swoosh 270 is ultra-lightweight and super well ventilated – meaning you stay as fresh as the colourway!

Basketball pro, Kevin Durrant was one of the first to rock the 270, resulting in Nike making the biggest ever 270 to date – a huge size 18! He claimed the dual density foam in the forefoot coupled with the heel unit was one of the comfiest rides he had ever had!
