Our favourite pieces from the Nike February flash sale. Why we love them and why we think you will too!
The almighty swoosh is one of the most instantly recognisable logos in the world. As an innovator of sportswear and footwear giants we’ve always got an eye for Nike’s latest offering, so it’s a blessing when they hold a sale.
Flicking through the many options of their latest flash sale, we’ve handpicked just a few men’s items we absolutely love. Whether it be for the technology behind it or just because of their head turning looks, here are our favourite pieces from Nike’s February flash sale!
Nike Presto Essential
The Presto was a revelation upon its initial release in 2000. The soft lightweight materials used were loved as much as the supportive moulded foot cage that we hadn’t seen the likes of before. Almost two decades later and the Presto is just strong as ever.
The Presto Essential features all the trademarks we first fell in love with. A stretchy mesh upper replaces neoprene that was originally used for a flexible and feathery upper. The outsole curves and grooves make the shoe supple enough to keep up with your every movement and it wouldn’t be a Presto with that famous moulded midfoot cage would it?
Nike Free Train Versatility
When it comes to innovative workout footwear there’s Nike and there’s everyone else. The Nike Free Train Versatility is further proof of this.
Mixing a number of Nike’s latest technology, the Free Train offers stability through its use of Flywire cables, weightlessness through its non-sewn overlays and with its Free outersole, a shoe that expands and contracts with your every move making this one of the closest experiences to barefoot training around.
Nike SB Trainerendor Leather
A fairly recent model that’s quickly become a fan favourite, this edition of the Trainerendor which is new for 2017 makes minor adjustments. What we love about this shoe is its ruggedness and design which can be worn across a variety of terrain.
Our favourite of all the pairs available has to be the classic black and white colourway. A black upper featuring leather detailing and its signature Velcro strap all sitting on a crisp white sole. A tough shoe in timeless colours makes this a perfect go to shoe for everyday use no matter the weather.
M NK Aeroswift Strike Drill top
This year’s favoured training gear by a whole host of football teams, the Aeroswift Strike Drill combines tailoring and innovation for a top that will allow you to train comfortably for long periods of time.
The engineered fabric dries quickly so you don’t get held down by sweat and the knitted material is stretchy enough to closely follow every twist and turn you may make. Made from a mix of machine washable materials, one training session in one of these and you’ll be throwing out all your old cotton tops.
LunarGlide 8 iD
The third shoe on our list specifically for intensive training is the LunarGlide 8. Coming from a prestigious family of LunarGlides, this pair harness the incredibly soft cushioning Nike’s Lunarlon tech was designed for. The engineered mesh provides a breathability that you’ll struggle to live without once you experience it and the use of Flywire ensures a snug and stable fit.
This shoe really makes the list however is because it’s available on Nike’s iD customisation service. The shoe sports a minimal yet detail heavy design and already comes in a host of great colourways. However, the ability to really make this shoe your own is what we love. Experiment with various colours to create a truly unique and possibly one of one training shoe!
Nike SB Lunar Paul Rodriguez 9
Nike have shown time and time again that they can take a classic shoe and update it with the latest technology to create something even sweeter and here they’ve done it again.
Skateboarding legend Paul Rodriguez already has a line of Nike SB sneakers that pleased skateboard fanatics across the globe. Now Nike have taken the Paul Rodriguez 9 and given it a more lightweight profile via a fully breathable synthetic upper. The cherry on the cake is that they’ve added a super light, super flexible Lunarlon midsole which instantly adds a new level of comfort to an already easy shoe. With that sleek black, red and white colour scheme, you’re sure to love these.
7” Phenom 2-in-1 shorts
What’s so special about shorts? We hear you ask. Well these Phenom 2-in-1 running shorts are made with stretchy built-in compression shorts so you are fully supported at all times during your workout.
While inner and outer shorts are Dri-Fit, the outer shorts feature all over laser perforations for greater breathability, a stretchy waistband, pocket and reflective detailing to keep you visible in low light.
Nike Train Ultrafast Flyknit
Much like the Free Train Versatility, this is a pair constructed with some of Nike’s finest tech. The variety of colours, the diamond lattice upper design all adds to a shoe that boasts a complex style without compromising its functionality.
A shoe made for intense physical training the Ultrafast Flyknit allows for quick multidirectional movement, generating speed easily and stability. Its unique diamond shaped design makes the shoe breathable and helps lock your feet in place. One for those who can’t skip a gym session, this is the most functional training shoe on our list.
Air Jordan Air Jumpman Hands Down tee
Ah the world famous Jumpman. Michael Jordan’s 1984 silhouette is almost as famous as the swoosh that birthed it. This iconic tee comes in an athletic fit perfect for unrestricted movement and comes in a soft cotton for all day comfort.
The tee might not give you MJ’s ability (that’s in the shoes) but you can at least get his look with this simple and straight to the point t-shirt.
Nike SB Dunk High Boot
Just one look at these reworked Dunks and you know they mean business! After seeing success with a number of “sneakerboots” made from their top models, Nike are showing their SB family the same love. The Dunk High Boot is made with leather and mesh on the upper which is a more than capable combo to deal with rain, sleet or even snow. The contrasting laces jazz up the shoe’s look and the rugged outsoles complete this winterised remix.
Although the boot is made with the rougher seasons of the year in mind, grabbing a pair in the sale just for those rainy days would be a wise investment.
