The Air Max 270 Shows Its Heritage
The Air Max 270 hasn’t even hit feet yet, but already Nike are revealing tweaks and rejigs of the style. Riding this wave, the brand have just unveiled a 270 that proudly flaunts its Air Max 180 parentage.
This version keeps the hybrid Air/foam midsole of other 270s, but its upper bears more than a passing resemblance to the original 91 model. The OG’s exaggerated tongue reappears in sock-fit form and 180-esque suede panelling gives Nike’s new silhouette a decidedly retro feel.
The original 90s tongue logo cements this shoe’s pedigree. Releasing first in a clean white and grey, we will no doubt see more colourways emerging from the woodwork.
Look out for these from March 2.
