Nike Air Max 270 SE Style

A women’s shoe like these Nike Air Max 270s delivers a sporty yet casual appearance thanks to the proper mix of breathable uppers with a contrasting heel Air bag. Going casual is a no brainer for these even if one should wear bleached up hoodies and trousers with it. On the other side of the spectrum, the sneaker can also possess the same class as that of dress clothes when partnered with jeans, joggers, leggings, and skinny pants.

Notable Features

The common denominator when talking about premium Nike sneakers is the change in its upper material. In the case of the women’s shoe Nike Air Max 270, the component used to dress it are sturdier and showcase a vibrant display of patterns like camo and a futuristic embossed pattern.

Nike Air Max 270 SE History

Most millennials nowadays, or any other snowflake generation in general, might have the slightest idea that the concurrent Air Max 270 was a reimagination of a Nike 1993 model that bore the same moniker. Since it debuted in the early 90s, the Nike Air Max 93 had been showcasing the 270 air bubble on the heel with pride and prestige. Weird enough, the iconic 270-degree Air-sole unit was inspired by blow-molded handles of plastic milk jugs.

The mother model was wrapped up in a popular Nike component during the era--a neoprene upper. This hydrophilic material was pulled out from the surface of the Huarache which was released years earlier. Though the forefather iteration didn’t have much appreciation from the sneaker market, it served as the main inspiration for one of the boldest takes on the Air Max sneaker in the more recent years.

Enter the Nike Air Max 270. The somewhat slimmer cushioning tech of the 93 was revamped in 2018 morphing into a chunkier structure. The beefier cushioning, or technically known as the “Air sole technology,” supplies most of the sneaker’s comfort underfoot. Aside from that most striking accent of the sneaker, it also mashes two of Nike’s coveted models - the Air Max 180 and 93.

After almost a year, Nike went back to their design kitchen and created a premium version of the sneaker which was aptly named the Nike Air Max 270 SE. The special edition low top employs a different kind of upper which according to fans was sturdier. This Nike Air Max 270 SE women’s shoe also comes in a particular set of colorways which are eye-candies for collectors.

Additional Info

  • The Mica Green/Igloo/Summit White is the closest colorway to the famous Nike Air Max 270 light bone edition.
  • The cleatie-constructed upper provides a sock-like feel.
  • TPU heel counters provide a smooth transfer of shock to the Air Bag underneath it.
  • Adding to the cushioning is a three-piece Phylon midsole covered by a rubber outsole for traction.
