THE POPULAR Nike Air Max takes on a new iteration in the Air Max 270 which will be made available locally in March.
Hailed as a 100% lifestyle Air shoe, the 270 is designed with the same rigor as sport performance but also perfect for all-day wear.
It boasts of a 32-mm heel bag — the tallest-ever Max Air Heel Unit — which offers a super-soft bounce perfect for long days out.
The Air Max 270 takes inspiration from the Air Max 93 and 180, with the “270” coined by Nike designers in reference to the 270 degrees of visibility in the air unit found in the 93.
National Basketball Association superstar and champion Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors was one of the first to rock the 270 and came away impressed, particularly with the Air Max 270 unit height that offers the biggest heel volume displacement for maximum air cushion comfort.
Nike said the 270 will feature a variety of silhouettes and colors throughout the year.
The Nike Air Max 270 will be available starting March 2 at select Nike stores, Commonwealth, Sole Academy, The Athlete’s Foot and Capital with a retail price of P7,645. — Michael Angelo S. Murillo
