Savvy shoppers know that Labor Day Weekend sales are the perfect opportunity to snap up new duds for fall and winter, as well as replace this summer’s worn-out sandals with styles for next year. Retailers offer the best shoe deals at this time of year, and online is the easiest way to shop them.
Labor Day is the federal holiday created to honor American workers and their achievements, giving most the day off, because that’s definitely the way to our hearts. Held on the first Monday of September, the preceding weekend is also the unofficial end of summer. This year, Labor Day is Monday, Sept. 6, and most online sales will kick off on Saturday, Sept. 4.
For Nike obsessives who can’t have too many pairs of Nike sneakers in their arsenal, it’s the optimum time to nab some at a discount over the three-day weekend. And the sale isn’t just limited to kicks — it also offers deals on Nike activewear and athleisure.
Ahead, we’ve broken down everything you need to know about Nike’s Labor Day sale 2021.
Are Nike Labor Day Sales Worth It?
The short answer is yes.
Nike periodically has sales on its website. It’s currently hosting an up to 40% off promotion on select clothing, shoes and accessories, which — unlike most sales from the brand — has been running for a few weeks now. However, the most coveted styles aren’t typically included in these types of offers, and if they do, discounts are minor until styles sell out.
On special occasions like Labor Day Weekend, though, the athletic company ups the ante and dishes out many more deals on nike.com. Last year, the Swoosh offered up to 40% off top styles like Air Force 1s and the classic Nike sports bra.
