The drop of a new sneaker is always a bit exciting. The drop of a new Nike sneaker that actually takes design and innovation to another level in a brand new colourway? Now you’re talking!

Case in point: the Nike Air Max 270 in “Flight Gold”.

Unlike the long line of Air Max trainers that came before it, the 270 is Nike’s first ever lifestyle Air shoe – making it one of the most coveted new kicks on the block.

WHAT MAKES THE NIKE AIR MAX 270 SO SPECIAL?

Imagine if the Nike Air Max 93 and the Air Max 180 got together and made a beautiful sneaker baby – yep, that would be the Air Max 270! Old school yet futuristic, the brand new silhouette takes inspiration from its 90s parents, featuring a pointed toe box and a running-style heel.

The ‘270’ in its name signifies the 270 degrees of air seen within its Air Max Unit, which happens to be the tallest one yet at a whopping 32 milimetres! Designed for all-day comfort, the mixed mesh upper and dual density foam ensure ease on the go. The shoe also features three-layer Hyperfuse detailing on the midguard and toe for superior stability. Talk about high tech!

WE’RE CALLING IT… THIS IS THE COLOURWAY OF THE SEASON

If we had to get only one colourway of this shoe, “Flight Gold” would be it. The latest (and possibly greatest) of the 270s colourways, the palette is built around a blend of Light Bone along the vamp, a Hot Punch Air Max Unit with and Flight Gold Hyperfuse overlays, all puncuated with accents in black and white. Yep… we’re in sneaker heaven.
