Feel big Air with a brand-new silhouette that borrows from two icons
Bubblekoppe are counting down towards Air Max Day, 26 March, and to ring in the annual commemoration of all things Air the Swoosh will revisit the early 90s with the Air Max 180 and the Air Max 93, and then drop even more Air in the form of the VaporMax 97, Nike VaporMax Flyknit 2.0 and something completely different, the Nike Air Max 1/97 "Vote Forward" SW.
Today we kick off the festivities with the Nike Air Max 270, which is a new silhouette and the first Air Max sneaker specifically designed for lifestyle.
With the biggest heel Air bag ever, the Air Max 270 brings you even closer to the feeling of walking on air. Two icons of big Air inspired this innovation – the Air Max 180, with the first Air bag to be made visible through the outsole, and the Air Max 93, which boasted 270 degrees of visible Air around the heel.
The hybrid silhouette has a bunch of colorways, some that nod to the original Air 180 and Air Max 93 colour schemes, and others that just sound damn cool (Dusty Cactus or Pastel Bliss, anyone?)
You can cop on Superbalist in either light bone and hot punch or black, white and solar red. Both feature: a form-fitting mesh upper, textile heel counter, a white midsole, a translucent visible Max Air unit, mini Swoosh logos and embossed insignia. Delicious.
