Breaking down the Nike Air Edge 270 

Function-wise, the bulging Air Max 270 unit this Nike kick features is responsible for a comfortable step while the TecTuff material on the toe adds durability to the model. It also has a unique lacing system that provides a personalized fit.

Aesthetically, a retro-looking basketball-inspired upper sits on the Air unit. Additionally, the asymmetric details on the vamp area give the sneaker a striking appearance.

Nike Air Edge 270 versus other Nike Air 270 models

A lot of people are familiar with the largest Air unit, the Air Max 270. So when one hears about a Nike Air 270 model, the image one first imagines is its unique sole.

The Nike Air Edge 270 is among the different silhouettes that feature this bulbous Air unit. Other models that feature this technology are the following:

  • Air Max 270 - Unlike the Air Edge 270 that is inspired by basketball, the AM 270 is a running-inspired model. It is also the first shoe in the Air Max line to feature a heel unit specially engineered for lifestyle use.
  • Air Force 270 - Both the Air Edge 270 and AF 270 are among the basketball-inspired models with a strap closure that can be easily adjusted for a snug fit. 
  • Jordan Mars 270 - Although the Air Edge 270 and Jordan Mars 270 are similar for having a high top, the Jordan Mars 270 provides more ankle support than the Air Edge 270.
