Model: Air Max 270 React
Key Features: Midsole features Nike’s React foam technology, new construction methodology which consists of the layering of no-sew materials together for the upper.
Release Date: 13th July 2019
Nike’s new Air Max offering, the 270, joins with the brand’s softest, smoothest and most resilient foam the Nike React.
The 270 React continues a drive for iterative progress in the Air Max lineage. The introduction of Nike React technology results in a smooth transition from heel to forefoot. The shoe’s upper follows the radiating design language of the tooling by layering no-sew materials to mirror a traditional cut-and-sew aesthetic through a new construction methodology.
The initial releases of the Nike Air Max 270 React share a consistent foundation in art and design history. Each colorway translates a specific artistic style or movement in its blocking and hues. The lead launch colorway, for example, heralds the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus’s founding by recalling the school’s formal studies of asymmetrical balance. Other colorways highlight explorations of geometric compositions, mid-century-inspired color blocking, San Francisco psychedelia and more.
