The Nike Air Max 270 React, as one of Beaverton’s most recent and effective crossovers yet, is following in the footsteps of the slightly older Presto React, covering all its bases with toolings both contemporary and unapologetically futuristic. Inspired by the shoe of the year winning model that started it all, the pair boats translucent uppers across its toe box and profile, opening up to whatever sock of choice. While the inners are left to the hand of personal customization, the outers feature wave-like panelling that grasp from a large spectrum of cool tones. Mudguards swap between two similarly hinted neon blues, wrapping from the toe to the heel in its Hyper Jade while also making cameo along the eye stay. Underlying components blind in Barely Volt, slightly diverting from the overlaid Frosted Spruce swoosh though blending in with the tongue and inner lining.
