If it ain’t broke, don't fix it. But if it doesn’t need fixing then there’s no harm in a few upgrades.
That’s precisely the attitude Nike have taken with their Air Max 270 Flyknit. The bulging bubble has been left alone, retaining its responsibility for cushioning the foot, but the upper has received a full overhaul. In place of the original mesh, the new design sports a spiffy Flyknit structure that promises to be lighter and more supportive than the common old mesh.
The Nike Air Max 270 Flyknit will be dropping in both men’s and women’s sizes on March 22.
