Nike continues to drive the innovation train forward, with the introduction of it’s newest form of Max; the Nike Air Max 270 React. Taking the meteoric rise of the Nike Air Max 270 and fusing this with brand’s softest, smoothest and strongest foam, Nike React; the result is a leap forward in the progress of the Air Max lineage. With modern tooling building from the ground up in the sneakers’ design, this is by far one of Nike’s most impressive designs for the year.
Combining two of it’s most prolific modern silhouettes was always a no-brainer for Nike, with clear inspirations taken from the Element React 87 and Air Max 270. Employing a full-length Nike React midsole, the inherent grooves in the React foam call back to the carved body of the Air Max 93’s midsole. Sat atop the prominent wrap around Air Max unit borrowed from the 270, the fusion of technologies results in a symphony of smooth heel to forefoot transitions with responsive cushioning. The upper tightly layers no-sew materials to mirror a traditional cut and sew aesthetic, creating nuanced lines with added panels at the fore-foot of the mudguard, extending the possibilities for Nike’s creative colour genius to takeover. With a shrouded swoosh at the upper and embroidered “AIR270” and “REACT” on the tongue, the beginnings of the sneaker only point toward it being one of the future greats of the Air Max pantheon.
Releasing in a number of colour-ways for both Men and Women, the lead colour-ways of the launch are centred upon two bauhaus inspired iterations, commemorating the 100th Anniversary of it’s school’s founding.
