Nike Launches Music Genre-Inspired Shoe Collection

Your personal style can say a lot about you. More specifically, it serves as a form of expression, as does your taste in music. With Nike‘s new music genre-inspired line of Air Max 270 Reacts, we’ll be able to tell whether it’s reggae or electronic music that speaks to you.

Nike has always been one to curate pieces perfect for upping your festival ensembles (like the Benassi Slides last year). This time, the brand has created five distinctive colors for its Air Max 270 Reacts, each representing a different genre among reggae, hip-hop, punk rock, heavy metal and of course, electronic music.

The spirit of reggae is captured by an artistic fusion of forest green with shades of tan, intending to evoke a rhythmic, lively spirit. Meanwhile, hip-hop is represented by a black-on-black paneling look. The simplicity serves as a perfect visual representation of love, rage and activism driving the genre. Heavy metal entails a base of intense blue and blacks, contrasting sharply with a staccato gold Nike Swoosh, while Punk Rock contrasts a rebellious black with a bold white Swoosh.
