Nike have thrown everything they’ve got at the Air Force 270, and we have to admit, we have mixed feelings on this one.
First of all, we dig it. There’s an unbelievably technical side to the design, yet there are other elements — such as the shape of the toe, which harks back to simpler times.
That being said, there’s a lot happening further back. The new 270 Air unit sits below a bootie-like upper with a detached lacing structure at the ankle and an industrial forefoot strap. At the end of the day, all that matters is how they look on foot — time will tell.
Nike have yet to reveal any release info for the Air Max 270 but we’ll keep an ear to the ground. Stay tuned.
