The experimental approach Nike has undertaken in past years has lead them right to the doorstep of the Air Max 270 React whose cushion arrives in the fused form of its starring Air unit and newfound foam. Though its bottoms are true to their original namesakes, the upper is much more in line with design modernity while incorporating elements of their starring past silhouettes. Inspired quite heavily by the Element 87, the pair features a bar tach construction technique as overlaid panels illusively float due to their removal of typical no-sew and stitched on methods. Informed by certain art motifs, the pair’s are strikingly vibrant with pastels and deeply saturated tones filling the construction in a form almost futuristic. Insoles feature geometric logo lock-ups with much more variety in-store later down the road.
