New images from the Instagram page @hanzuying give us a much better look at the Nike Air Max 270 React ENG that Travis Scott uses as the canvas for his upcoming release.
The wavy uppers comes in a beige color that is complemented by a brown leather mudguard and tan suede around the heel. An orange Swoosh layered on top of the suede adds a pop of color. An interesting touch is the grey tongue and eyelets, which really stand out from the earthy tones of the uppers. There is hardly any branding except for the Cactus Jack logos on the heel tab and insole.
This earthy upper is set atop a pre-oxidized React midsole that looks like the ones on the Off-White x Air Jordan 5. The 270 Air unit comes in a similar yellowish hue as well, creating a cohesively color matched midsole.
The Travis Scott x Nike Air Max 270 React was originally meant to drop in March 2020, but has been delayed to April 10 due to Covid-19. It will retail for US$190 (approx S$276.21). Stay tuned for more updates on its release.
