Boasting the first-ever Max Air unit created specifically for Nike Sportswear, the Nike Men’s Air Max 270 sneaker delivers visible air under every step. Updated for modern comfort, it nods to the original, 1991 Air Max 180 with its exaggerated tongue top and heritage tongue logo.
The Nike Air Max 270 is inspired by two icons of big Air: the Air Max 180 and Air Max 93. Registering at a height of 32mm, it features Nike’s biggest heel Air unit yet for a super-soft ride that feels as impossible as it looks.
AIR MAX ORIGINS
Nike’s revolutionary Air-Sole unit made its way into Nike footwear in 1978. In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 debuted with visible air in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air-Sole comfort—suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Nike Air Max shoes have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking colour combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning.
