NIKE AIR MAX 270

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, and its subsequent shoe, is the first 100-percent lifestyle Air shoe — designed with the same rigor as sport performance but for the demands of all-day wear.
