Nike Push Three Air Max Classics Into the Future
Taking classic colourways to alternative silhouettes is nothing new, but can be a hit-or-miss result depending on the execution. Fortunately, Beaverton seem to have hit the target with this pack, taking three of their most iconic colourways and breathing new life into them by adding the schemes to some of the Swoosh’s most advanced Air Max silhouettes.
The Air Max 270 React ‘University Red’ takes its colourway from Tinker Hatfield’s OG Air Max 1, the shoe that kick-started the whole Air Max line 33 years ago.
The Air Max 270 React ENG is offered up in a Dark Pewter/Dust/Volt in homage to the Sergio Lozano-designed Air Max 95‘Neon’.
Finally, the spacesuit-inspired MX-720-818 comes presented in an excellent Metallic Silver/University Red version to match Christian Tresser’s beloved ‘Silver Bullet’ Air Max 97.
With all styles paying attention to detail with the choice of materials, logo placements, and colours, this is a well thought-out and refreshing collection.
Currently only available to Nike members, expect a wider release in time for Air Max Day on March 26.
