Given the ubiquity of trail-inspired sneakers on the market right now, Nike’s Air Max 270 Bowfin proves it was well ahead of the curve. The off-road spec edition of the sportswear bubbler has big tread, ripstop materials, climbing-referencing colours, and pull-tabs aplenty. Grey uppers, speckled midsoles, and shaded Air units tick all the necessary boxes.
Fittingly enough, a performance-implied but sportswear-intended design finds its way onto shelves of fashion-forward retailers like SSENSE. It doesn’t matter: it’s a great colourway.
