Fit compared to my Nike Air Max 2016 Dámské trusty F-lite 232s (on left). Notice more bunching of upper of 270 and less conformation to foot due to thicker upper material and stiffer overlays/different Adidas NMD Femme shape in heel.
Let’s move on to the upper and fit. The 270 fits a little lower volume in the midfoot than the 290, but has a more spacious toe box feel. The latter is most likely due to the use of all welded overlays instead of the stitched rand of the 290. This was a positive attribute, and it looks like the 290 will be following suit in this regard when it gets an upper update this summer. However, that said, the Adidas Superstar Donne mesh on the 270 looks to be two layers of mesh mated together – this differs from most of inov-8’s other shoes that use a simple, single layer of mesh. It is much thicker/stiffer than the Nike Air Max 90 Herren Trailrocs and F-lites and therefore Nike Air Max Zero Femme runs much warmer than either of those. It is also noticeably less comfortable since it doesn’t move as freely with the foot. Furthermore, the heel collar is quite stiff, slightly higher than either the Trailroc or F-lite collars, and has a significant (for inov-8) counter in it. I find it adequate, but not ideal and less comfortable by far than either the Trailrocs or F-lites.Inside of shoe shows heavy duty lining material from midfoot forward which contributes to the hot upper and stiffer feel. Granted they will hold up a lot longer, but I think that should be saved for the 290 with the 270 focusing more on lightness and race day comfort/heat management rather than long term durability.Overall, the inov-8 Race Ultra 270 has loads Nike Air Max Command Homme of potential. It was probably the shoe I was most looking forward to this spring, Nike Air Max 90 Mujer but in the end I feel that something Nike Air Max Tavas Dam got lost in the process of translating the 290 to a lower and racier platform. I think part of the problem is the EVA midsole foam (compressed vs. injected), but I also feel that the upper design of the 270 is too conservative and ends Nike Air Max 1 Mujer up being more like the upper that the 290 should have. It just feels overbuilt for a racier shoe like the 270.
