Merging the best of Nike with this season's utilitarian trend
Introducing the second part of their new ISPA program, Nike’s highly technical team of designers march into 2019 with the Air Max 270 treading new ground underfoot. Featuring a similar aesthetic to the React Runner Mid, the upper is engineered to perform under wet conditions, while the sole sees its Air unit replaced with 270 degrees of a super-soft cushioning. Merging the best of Nike with this season's utilitarian trend, the program’s “Improvise. Scavenge. Protect. Adapt.” ethos sees an intricate cage overlay the weatherproof uppers, while a higher cut construction, toggle rope-like lacing and treaded outsole accentuates the sneaker's practical appeal.
