Nike has long been famous for its air technology, which simultaneously provides cushioning and support, as what began as an experiment in cushioning soon became a staple of their legacy. Now, Nike have gone one step further and created their first 100% air cushioned lifestyle sneaker in the Air Max 270; a whole new foray for the brand.

The Air Max 270 pays tribute to past silhouettes, such as the Air Max 93 and Air Max 180, while ushering in a new wave of innovation for sportswear sneakers. They combine the style of a lifestyle sneaker with the unparalleled support of a performance shoe, making them a unique hybrid in lifestyle footwear.

The heel of the sneaker offers maximum heel volume displacement; sitting at 32mm tall, it is the tallest ever Air Max heel and offers even greater support than it’s predecessors.
