The Nike Air Max Does a 270°

Nike is continuing to maximize its Air Max technology and we’ve got a look at the latest: the Nike Air 270.

From the classic Air Max 1 to the futuristic Air VaporMax, the signature air units have delivered bouncy cushion with eye-catching style. Now, the units are doing even more.

What could be the Air Max 270, or Air 270, features a massive U-shaped Air Max unit that is seamlessly integrated with the transparent plastic heel counter — this should offer stability from outsole to heel. The open cell mesh upper is strategically ventilated with fuse overlays for durability. Combining the one-piece tongue design with the slightly asymmetrical lacing system, stability may not be an issue.

So far, there is no official release info on this newest Air Max model, but we’ll update you when we find out more.

Would you be interested in grabbing a pair of this half-VaporMax sneaker? Let us know.

  1. If they had air in the forefoot that would be interesting. Otherwise not interested

    If they released zoom vapour but without that midfoot gap i would be going for these

  2. So far I’m interested. This looks cleaner and sleeker than the vapor max while still offering a visually interesting component.

  3. That’s a nice looking fattie bag of air.. Now if they had a Zoom in the forefoot it would have been worth the retail price as long as they come up with better CW.
