Wear the Bauhaus with Nike’s new Air Max sneakers

The Air Max 270 React rocks a Bauhaus-inspired color palette

From exhibitions to blankets to Google Doodles, the Bauhaus centennial has given the world enough Bauhausian fodder to last a lifetime (or at least a year). Now, Nike is getting in on the fun with a new shoe drop honoring the German design school.

Next week, Nike is releasing the Air Max 270 React, a cushy sneaker that’s decked out in two Bauhaus-inspired color palettes. The first pair has an upper with a white base that’s overlaid with geometric strips of black, red, and turquoise. A bright yellow swoosh cuts across the side and a deep blue air bubble provides cushion, solidifying the shoe’s primary-hued vibe.

Another version of the sneaker takes a slightly more understated approach with a palette of red, black, cornflower blue, and pale yellow. It’s all enough to make Josef Albers weep tears of color theory joy.

if you’re interested in wearing a little piece of the Bauhaus, you can snag a pair of the sneakers for $150 when they go on sale July 3.
