Pros

Our sweat junkie that has created a lifestyle around fitness and exercise. These shoes are made to not only be stylish during exercise, but also perfect outside of the gym as a lifestyle sneaker. The 270’s were designed with your comfort in mind. It is incredible how comfortable these sneakers are. You will be able to wear them all day long without any issues. The heel is the highest Air heel yet, which helps with impact as you run. Reviewers say they are true to size. The comfort. This is the #1 pro of the 270’s. This is Nike’s first lifestyle shoe, so it was important for them to design a shoe that could be used for all-day wear, before, during, and after your workout.

Cons

Some reviewers say the material that Nike chose to use scuffs easily. However, that can be solved with a quick wash in the washing machine. From my own experience, they are not my squatting shoe of choice, simply because the heel is too high for me. It depends on how high you like your heels lifted when you do squats, keeping ankle mobility in mind.

Bottom Line

This versatile and stylish pair of shoes is definitely worth the investment if you are a fitness junkie who loves going from the gym to athleisure for your everyday look. This lifestyle sneaker is great for all-day comfort and designed with all styles in mind with multiple color-ways.

As a fitness lover, I’m always looking for the best, stylish sneaker I can not only run in, but also wear straight to the squat rack and hammer out a solid leg day. This is extremely tricky to find, because we want a shoe that is light for our runs or boxing sessions, but also sturdy and supportive during our lifts. 

One of Nike’s newest releases in the last year was their Nike Air Max 270s, and they are very unique and stylish. The looks are there, but how do they function? After test driving a pair and scouring the internet for reviews, I give you the pros, cons, and bottom line of the Nike Air Max 270.
