Nike continues to add more hybrid sneakers to its already massive lineup. Earlier this week the sportswear giant unveiled its new Air Max 270 React sneaker.
The Air Max 270 React takes cues from the popular Nike React Element 87. The new model combines Nike’s lifestyle 270 Air unit which also released in 2018 with its new React technology The Nike React midsole makes up the base of the shoe, which in turn makes for improved cushioning. On the creation of Nike’s latest model, Senior Sportswear Design Director Dylan Raasch stated,
“Instead of no-sew or stitched on panels, the Air Max 270 React is built with a bar tack technique inspired by the Element React 87. This creates the floating eye stay aesthetic.”
We first saw the Nike Air Max 270 on the U.S. Woman’s National Football team last month. The lifestyle shoe will also launch in both men’s and women’s sizing later this summer. You’ll notice various colorways that give the sneaker its own feel. The Men’s options include a white-based upper mixed with black, blue, red, teal, and yellow accents along with a stealthy dark grey and black iteration. For the women, pastel colors and in my opinion are the standout colorways.
