Appropriate to sport during both Summer and Fall, Nike’s latest Air Max 270 React trio is a sure addition to your seasonal rotation. The hybrid silhouette arrives in “Electro Green,” “Hyper Jade” and “Blue Lagoon” colorways, combining construction elements of the original footwear and definable React characteristics.
Boasting iconic TPE uppers, the “Hyper Jade” and “Blue Lagoon” iterations come dipped in cool hues of green, blue, red and yellow. Its wavy overlays create space for translucent panels and toe boxes, allowing the user to add another layer of color if desired. On top of the distinct midfoot check, branding hits can also be found on the joint Air 270 and Nike React emblems on the tongue, along with mini Swoosh and Nike React markings by the heel counter and heel stabilizer. Both models rest on a redesigned React Element 87 midsole, finished with a minimized Air Max 270 transparent midsole window.
“Electro Green,” on the other hand, remains more fitting for the Fall season with the presence of warm tones. Although the upper is crafted with a mint green base, its dark blue obsidian overlays and yellow ochre hits on the midfoot swoosh, eyestays and heel tab create a completely different mood. This iteration follows the previous two’s branding elements and sole architecture but lacks the translucent TPE construction on the panel and toe box.
The Nike Air Max 270 React “Hyper Jade” and “Blue Lagoon” drop July 18, with “Electro Green” following September 5. Cop all three pairs on nike.com and select retailers like sivasdescalzo.com for €160 EUR (approximately $180 USD).
