Nike: Air Max 270 – Black

The first time I saw these kicks they were the limited edition pack, all black with a pink bubble (that also came in blue, green and orange). I wanted the pink bubble one, did I manage to cop them? No.

I’m sure they were around £160 and now I’m doing up adult I don’t think it would’ve been a very responsible money move (and I was too late trying to get them)…

The triple black ones that I ended up copping were £115.00. I do love them, they’re very slick. You can never really go wrong with an all black sneaker, to be honest.

Although I feel like they make my feet look long, I’m a U.K. size 6, so my feet aren’t that big. But they’re men’s shoes so maybe that’s why, yeah, I’m gonna go with that excuse and not the one where I have big-ass man feet. 

Nike’s Air Max 270 sneaker design was inspired by two of Nike’s previous Air Max shapes, Air Max 180 and Air Max 93. This particular sneaker features Nike’s biggest air heel yet, which ensures comfort no matter how long you wear them, could have fooled me. 

As much as I do vouch for the comfort you get from wearing these kicks for a short amount of time, wearing them while motorway driving is long for man. My feet hurt so much, but I don’t know if that’s because I tried them too tight or because they were relatively new so I hadn’t broken into them well enough at that point.

I definitely recommend them, they bang. They really do complete every outfit.
