The silhouette, known for its exposed oversized Air bubble unit, is treated to a number of tonal hues and features highlighted toe box detailing, heel cups, laces and tongue branding in bold orange and blue hues. The same color scheme is seen on the insole.
Its upper is made from lightweight, layered no-sew materials which have been overlayed to add depth, distinguishing its Swoosh from the mid-panels and eyestay from the vamp. The toe box is treated to a transparent finish which is continued up into the mid-panel, while the rear gets a premium look with a synthetic suede cap and webbed pull tab.
Nike has added a brown React outsole to the Air Max 270, which is a welcomed contrast to the clean base colors and bold accenting hues used throughout the upper. Take a closer look at the member’s only sneaker above and pick up your pair from Nike.com for $150 USD.
