The new Air Max model flaunts a design and features that pay homage to the and. It looks a little cheap to me. The asymmetrical lacing sits on top of a quite thin, but very softly-lined one-piece upper. They are super great for everyday things like walking and running. I tie mine lose enough to slip my foot in and out without untying the shoe. Though, those with wide feet found this narrow-fitting in the toe box and opted for a half size bigger than their usual for a more comfortable fit.
The knit upper is equipped with no-sew overlays and mesh areas, which gives out an impression of cozy wearing while ensuring the wearers a supportive fit and breathable comfort. The slip-on like design of the upper and the heel loop got their jobs done. It proved that it could offer the type of performance needed on the basketball court as well as on the tracks.

For people who are looking for that rare mix of softness, support, and exceptional comfort, the Air Max 270 should be a definite must-have. They just needed to be broken in.
Style The Air Max 270 is unabashedly a fashion-forward sneaker that is quite versatile. The extensive color selection of this kick also allows different ways of styling it. When I first pulled out the shoe from the shoebox, I was a little concerned of the quality and material used for the midsole. From the heel and outsole, the sweet mix of engineered mesh and fused overlays should bring a smile to most sneaker fanatics. The foot was smiling from ear to ear already. The interior offers adequate room for the toes to move around without feeling sloppy.
One even said that he could not be more stoked on the comfort it gives his feet. Not all colorways sell out and these are actually a pretty easy shoe to find. The gap is a little too much for me. The 270 moniker is based on the 270-degree of visible Air unit, which happens to be a nickname for one of the two inspirations of this shoe — the Air Max 93 that pioneered the blow-molded Air Max unit in the heel. Beneath this engineered mesh is a more refined mesh that is surely designed for added durability and to keep dirt off. It is the first shoe in the Air Max lineup to feature a heel Air unit that is specifically engineered for lifestyle use and all-day wear with similar performance vigor as those used in its sports performance predecessors.
The traction under your midfoot and toes does the job as well. Originally named the Air Max 273 as a reference to its design influences, the Air Max 270 features 270-degrees of visibility in the air unit, a distinction it shares with the Air Max 93. As I explained above, the pressure of the airbag is just enough to absorb the impact of your foot while taking a step and then the foam that the airbag is wrapped around catches the rest of the impact and rolls to your toes very nicely. This bold new Max Air unit serves as the foundation for a unique zonal-mesh upper that features a combination of several mesh patterns, creating a lightweight, breathable shoe with a structured and modern look. The airbag is a lot softer than I was expecting, but the airbag is wrapped around the foam I will show a picture a little lower in the review which helps catch your foot when you take a step and allows your foot to roll forward from your heel to the rest of the foot.
Countless other colorways followed since then. This year, relentless drive to get the most out of its incredibly deep and historical archives takes another significant turn as it introduces. It is in the cushioning that Nike really aced in this shoe. They are pretty squishy and do a great job absorbing the impact while walking or running. A pull tab is present on the heel for easy on and off, and the asymmetrical lacing adds to the snug fit.

The combination of the Air unit and heel counter delivers a look that will more than cause a sideways glance from the most jaded observer. Putting on the shoe was quite a breeze. Continuing the storied lineage, the pioneering Nike Air Max 270 breaks new ground with the largest heel bag ever, delivering enhanced cushioning and impact absorption for your active lifestyle. Even as a boot, the lightweight materials do not constrict or rub at my ankles at all, letting them perform as running shoes if I wish, without any problem at all. When I first got in hand, I was surprised by how large the airbag was and how much it stuck out the back of the shoe. The traction on the heel does the job and allows your foot to roll to the toes very nicely. The prominent perforations all over the shoe should make this a solid choice when the weather gets hot.
Once I got the shoe on my foot, I was again shocked. I will buy them again if the right colorway pops up. The Swoosh has provided sneaker fans a plethora of eye-catching and mouth-watering sneakers since Tinker Hatfield decided to turn the status quo upside down by revealing the Air unit in the midsole of the Air Max 1. Aside from its functional values, the prominent Max Air unit also contributes significantly to the shoe's aesthetics.

This time about the comfort! For decades, Air Max has made a name for itself as a stylish family of sneakers with ultra-cushy Air-Sole units. Some thought that the large visible Air unit in the heel is next to impossible. This contemporary Air Max model is as impressive as it looks. I am not a big fan at how the outsole looks, it looks like a kindergartner glued them together. The fit generally runs true to size but tends to run a bit narrow in the toe box.
