One may purchase an item with many intended purposes, yet the choice of what exactly to buy depends on its main use. For sneakers, it would be the choice between lifestyle or performance; and in the case of Nike’s Air line, most sneaker freaks have known and loved it for its impeccable running performance. But come Air Max 270, that notion has been changed for good and for the better.
Release Date & Price
Release Date: February 2, 2018
When Nike released Air Max 270, it created ripples of shock, intrigue and excitement for the shoes dubbed as the “Nike’s First Lifestyle Air Unit.” The 100% lifestyle shoe became the bridging design that allowed The Air Max 270 unit to traverse the path from performance to lifestyle, still with a fair price point of 150 bucks.
Air Max 270 is the perfect pair for people who are always on the move, bringing with them their handsome shoes wherever they go. The promise of ultimate comfort is given by the high impact absorption of its 32mm heels, leading some to call the shoes “trampolines.”
Fans who have always worn performance-focused shoes would love the sensation of comfort this pair gives, even after a whole day long of wearing. Nike wasn’t kidding when they said it was a “lifestyle” pair, as not only does it feature the heel-to-toe comfort, but also utmost breathability, all thanks to the brand’s perfect design engineering. For adventurous individuals who love to play with fun color schemes, more recent releases of the design show bright hues in at least 4 colorways.
For solid fanatics of performance and athletic pairs, Air Max 270 would feel like a mismatch, because that’s what it really is. Although Kevin Durant himself have worn these shoes twice, both occasions, were not during a game, but in fact it was during rest days. But that shouldn’t be expected for any lifestyle shoe of any kind.
Another frowned upon detail about these shoes, or most Nike footwear for the matter, is the narrow built of the pair. If you feel like your midsole and above seem to be on the bigger side, go ahead and order half size up.
