It was part of the Travis Scott collaboration, but now it's more than that – find out when and where you can shop.

When Travis Scott's Air Max 270 React collaboration dropped late last year, fans were obsessed with the bulky, statement shape. The design was bold and wavy and it seems like it's become a new official model in the Nike line-up.

Named the Air Max 270 React ENG, the sneaker introduces a combination of retro and modern aesthetic. It's essentially a second iteration of the Air Max 270 react and we are obsessed with the new features.

Release date: The 16 January has been set as the Japan release date. It's not confirmed when the style will hit US or AU retailers so watch this space! We're expecting it could take a few months.

Where to shop: You'll be able to grab yourself a pair from Nike online. In the meantime, you can shop all other Nike kicks from stockists like JD Sports, Hype DC and Platypus Shoes.

The new Air Max 270 React ENG arrives in two colourway choices: Laser Blue and Eggplant. Laser Blue gives off cotton candy vibes with hues of yellow, blue and pink. On the other hand, Eggplant is a lot darker with tones of purple and neon green.

It's obvious that the main focus of the shoe is the wavy lines on the upper. We're obsessed with the gradient fades and bold detailing. From what we can see so far, the signature Swoosh is a lot smaller than usual and it comes with a translucent lace toggle and extended tongue pull tab.

You've also got a React foam in the forefoot and an Air Max 270 cushioning unit at the heel for extra comfort.
