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.

Nike 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.
