The upcoming Nike Air Max 270 React sneaker is the first time the sports brand has fitted a lifestyle shoe with its trademark Air Unit. Combine this with the soft, smooth and resilient Nike React foam and wearers can hit the streets with the same supportive tech typically reserved for the court or track.
The shoe’s bright layering mirrors a cut-and-sew design, which is how it achieves the floating-eye aesthetic. Inspiration for the styling was drawn from the unique Element React 87, released back in 2018. Air Max 270 React will be available with distinct colours and geometries reserved for male and female versions.
The initial releases share traits originating with art and design history. Each colourway translates a specific artistic style or movement with its blocking and hues. The lead colourways, for example, channels the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, the German art school that paved the way for studies of asymmetrical balance. Other colourways highlight San Francisco psychedelia, explorations of geometric compositions and more.
The Nike Air Max 270 React releases globally on July 3 and will be priced at RRP $220. You can secure a pair from Nike online and select retailers.
