Another prevailing trend moving into 2018 is the deconstructed and technical aesthetic that features all the inner workings of a shoe on the exterior. The upcoming Air Force 270 is one key example of that trend as every section of the shoe – the molded heel, utility-grade buckle, and perforated toe – purposely gear toward exposing the stitches and the joints. A modified version of the recently unveiled Air Max 270 Air unit provides the comfort, while a inner bootie ensures snug fit. This updates version of the Air Force 180 will debut soon in the familiar “Safari” colorway.
Nike’s Air Max 270 silhouette made its global debut today, dropping in four simple colorways with blacked out uppers and colorful Air Bag units. The energy around the Swoosh’s newest sneaker has been high, as Nike has handled its roll-out in a smart way, saving its louder colors for a drop during Air Max Day. Now, Nike has plans to add its lifestyle engineered Air Max heel to a brand new design called the Air Force 270– a combination of that aforementioned heel underneath an updated version of the Air Force 180. Initially sample photos of this look featured a Safari-print toe and an orange sockliner, but the photos you see below confirm tat it will come equipped with a leather to and black lining instead.
To go along with the Nike Air Max 270, Nike Sportswear will also be debuting the Nike Air Force 270. One of the first colorways to release comes dressed in the original “Safari” colorway that Tinker Hatfield made famous back in 1987 with the Air Safari.While having a half-length Air Max bag from the Air Max 270, the popular “Safari” print covers the toe and heel area. Dressed in the signature Black and Orange color scheme. This new Air Force 270 model comes equipped with a mid-foot buckled strap adding to the luxurious style.
