Behind the Sneaker
The Air Max 270 is Nike's First Lifestyle air unit—while there have been other Nike Air shoes designed explicitly for lifestyle, beginning with the 1987 Air Safari, these all featured air units originally created for running performance. The Air Max 270 unit is the first 100-percent lifestyle Air shoe, designed with the same rigor as sport performance but for the demands of all-day wear.
The air unit is a whopping 32 mm tall, and at the time was the tallest ever Air Max unit.
