Nike’s newest Air More Money creation helps further the brand’s increased emphasis on two particular – and unrelated – things, the female sneakerhead and the resurgence of retro 90s hoops models.

After recently being used as a tribute to the 1992 Dream Team and the classic Air Carnivore, Nike’s hybrid Air Force 270 is returning in a rather straightforward black/white colorway that may be yet another nod to the early 1990s basketball shoe era.  Boasting an upper constructed of black suede and mesh, the shoe’s striking contrast arrives via small Swoosh logos on the upper and the large white cage around the collar. The Air Force 270’s forefoot strap arrives in a two-to…
