Despite shifting their focus to the Air Max 720, Nike seems to be still supporting last year's Air Max model the 270. The 720 Air Max unit has been making its way to a plethora of shoes but now the 270 midsole is going to maintain its shine with this brand new silhouette called the Nike Air Edge 270. This release comes as a bit of surprise although Nike Air Max enthusiasts will probably be intrigued by the shoe's utility aesthetic that will surely turn a few heads. 

The sneaker has a mid-cut top with velcros going all the way up both sides of the shoe. Meanwhile, there are rope laces which add to the overall utility theme of the sneaker. These are mostly dressed in grey although there are orange accents going all the way up the middle of the upper. Finishing off these kicks is the Air Max 270 unit on the back heel which is completely translucent.

According to Sneaker News, these will be going for $160 USD and are slowly starting to drop at retailers worldwide. A wider release date has not been confirmed yet.

What are your thoughts on this brand new silhouette?
