Memorial Day is almost here, and every year, it never fails to be one of the best shopping weekends for consumers across the nation. It’s the weekend where you can score some of the best deals of the entire year — and across multiple categories, too. Whether you’re looking for the best spa gift sets or a baby shower gift for the expectant moms in your life, you’re sure to find a deal.
Even better, Memorial Day is also the unofficial start to summer, which means that we’re whipping out our bathing suits and swapping out our thermals for sweat and moisture-wicking, lightweight layers. And whether you’re looking for an athletic wardrobe refresh or need to restock your year-round essentials, this is the weekend you’ve been waiting for to land the best shoe deals and other hot-ticket items at seriously slashed prices.
Running today through Monday, Nike’s Memorial Day sale includes an extra 20% off select sale styles when you use code SAVE20 at checkout. And the brand’s clearance selection is more bountiful than normal, with amazing clothing styles, trendy men’s and women’s shoes, workout accessories, cold weather must-haves and so much more. Nike’s shoe sale selection includes options for men, women and kids, so you can shop for the entire family and get ready to play all the summer sports together in style.
Shorts, leggings and tops for women are up to 50% off, while some of the most coveted running, walking and lifestyle shoes are up to 40% off. And, even sport-specific footwear like soccer, baseball and softball cleats are marked down. Stock up on normally expensive kids sneakers, like the ever-popular Air Force 1 and Air Max styles, to wear now or save for the back-to-school season.
The sale also includes equipment for all bodies, genders and ages, with discounts up to 40% off on yoga mats, resistance bands, backpacks and sunglasses.
And if you’re looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift for the sporty dad, look no further — golf bags, duffels, running vests and even the Apple Watch Nike Series 6 with a Nike sport band are majorly reduced.
If you’re looking to get a lot of items for a fraction of the price, get ready to save big time. You could spend all day perusing the sale section, but no need — we did it for you. Ahead, shop our top five sale picks.
Nike Air Force 1 Crater Women’s Shoes
These buzzy sneakers are sustainably created with Crater Foam material, which features at least 20% recycled materials and provides super soft cushioning. The midsole is a mix of 11% Nike Grind rubber and foam material, while the speckled outsole is made of 15% Nike Grind rubber, and the variable percentages mean that each shoe is totally unique.
