Are you pumped for Air Max month? Check out the sweet, new colorways of the Nike Air Max 270 launching 3/2, and read on to learn more!

Welcome to the Air Max 270 — Nike’s first Max Air shoe designed for lifestyle wear. Originally engineered for running performance, this bold new model is built to meet the demands of all-day wear. We know you’ve got a busy, athletic lifestyle, and the 270 will keep you comfortable and on-trend all day long. So, with that in mind, we’re here to answer your questions about these new kicks.

1. Why “270?”

Nike Air Max 270 Story 2

Inspired by the Air Max 93 and 180, the name comes from the 270 degrees of visible Air Unit in the heel. In addition to all that glorious, visible Air, this is the tallest-ever Max Air Unit, clocking in at 32mm. How cool is that?

2. How comfortable is it?

Nike Air Max 270 Story 1

Very. You’ll get the biggest Max Air cushioning to date, and feel like you’re walking on air.  The bootie construction of this shoe offers you a premium, sock-like feel. The rubber toe tip while offers you excellent durability, and flex grooves let your foot bend and stretch.

3. What about style?

Nike Air Max 270 Story 3

Take a look at the lacing system. It’s designed to keep your foot secure while you rock the unique, asymmetrical look. The Multi-Swoosh design on the sides is reminiscent of a late ’90s vibe, and the rubber toe reads “AIR” on the tip. The Air Max 270 is available in a variety of unique colors, which are especially highlighted by the clear rubber on the heel. All those options are just too cool to ignore.

4. Who else is a fan?

Kevin Durant wore them on Nov. 22, and required a size 18 shoe. That’s a lot of Air.

5. So, which color should you choose?

That’s up to you. Make sure to grab your favorite color of the Air Max 270 when they drop at eastbay.com in early March.
