From an archival perspective, the Air Max 270 bears a striking resemblance to the 180 and 93, affording it a comfortable familiarity at odds with its futuristic proportions. Design-wise, the sleek, sock-like upper takes its cues from the stretchy inner sleeve that first appeared on the 180. The bulging heel was inspired by the Air Max 93, which pioneered a new blow-moulding manufacturing process to deliver the prominent rear-mounted cushion.According to Dylan Raasch, who spearheaded the Nike Air Max 270 design team, the biggest challenge was simply engineering such a towering heel unit. In previous iterations, cushioning was geared toward speed and performance so it was preferable to keep the foot closer to the ground for max stability. Since the 270 was all about max comfort, it required greater displacement beneath the heel for a heightened degree of cush. The mountainous bag Raasch came up with is an imposing 32mm tall – a full 15% bigger than any previous Air Max. The result is a trampoline-like ride that allows for a more pronounced transition between heel and toe.
