As a nod to the 1992 Olympic Dream Team and the Air Force 180 that Charles Barkley wore, Nike is releasing an inspired Air Force 270 that’s perfect for the month of July.This Nike Air Force 270 comes dressed in a Navy upper paired with Red and Metallic Gold contrasting accents throughout. A buckle midfoot strap, speckled midsole and signature Air Sole unit in the heel completes the design.
In the early life of the Swoosh Brand’s new Air Force 270 silhouette, Nike has been using it as a vessel to pay tribute to different parts of the Beaverton-based company’s storied history. Whether it be an iteration inspired by the brand’s iconic shoeboxes, or a colorway that has stood the test of time, the Air Force 270 appears to be hear to stay. Next up, Nike is paying its respects to the 1992 Olympic Dream Team and the Air Force 180 sneaker that Charles Barkley wore in action. In fact, the Air Force 270 sneaker takes the lifestyle-engineered Air unit of the original Air Max 270 and places it under an upper that takes clear inspiration from the AF180. Navy, red, and metallic gold create a familiar aesthetic on this new offering, with a gradient midsole that utilizes a gold splatter pattern for an extra regal touch.
Above you will get an official look at a new Nike Air Force 270 colorway that is said to pay tribute to the 1992 Olympic Dream Team. Said to be inspired by the Nike Air Force 180 that Charles Barkley wore during the Olympics, the Nike Air Force 270 comes dressed in a Navy upper contrasted by the Red and Metallic Gold hits found throughout the upper. Standout features on the shoe include Metallic Gold Swoosh branding, the Red buckle midfoot strap and the gradient and speckled midsole. No word yet on when these will be dropping, but we expect them to do so soon for the retail price of $160.
