Sneakers to Beat Up
You wear your shoes hard, so why not pick up a pair of ultra-durable sneakers that can hold up to wear and tear … and look good even with a few scuffs? (Those scuffs add to the look. Plus, they can easily be wiped away if you aren’t feeling the worn aesthetic!) Check out the sneaker changed running forever — the Air Max 90. These game-changing, tough-wearing kicks include the Air Max line’s trademark visible Air-Sole unit in the heel and all the retro goodness you expect from the Nike brand.
Sneakers to Flex In
Hey, you spent time tracking down those shoes, paid good money for them and want to show them off. So let ’em shine! Joggers and a cami. Baggy jeans and a tee. Prom dress or tux. You want that one shoe in your collection that goes with anything. Enter the Air Force 1. Songs have been written about them, and celebs have sported them. They’re timelessly trendy and multiple silhouettes- low, mid and high– are perfect for any situation.
Sneakers to Collect
Any sneaker collector, no matter their seniority in the sneaker game, knows that at least one pair of Jordans is a must-have. Whether you choose a hard-to-find colorway or something more easily accessible. Jordans are not only collectible but also comfortable, always stylish and are great lifestyle or athletic sneakers.

Sneakers for the Gym
Clean lifts, quick sprints and strenuous strength training require sturdy shoes. Add a pair of the versatile Nike Metcon sneakers to your gym bag. Triangular midsoles and ground-gripping traction patterns help you get the job done.
Sneakers that Go from Day to Night
Grocery, mall, park, work … elevate your look from morning to evening in a pair of Nike’s Air Max 2090s. These futuristic lifestyle shoes take the Air Max 90 and build upon that heritage while adding a futuristic spin. The elegantly aerodynamic silhouette gets blanketed with a variety of lightweight materials for a sporty yet sophisticated vibe.
Sneakers to Keep Feet Comfy
Casual wearers or those on the go want shoes that keep them moving in supreme comfort throughout their daily to-dos. Take on the world with the Nike Huarache, an oversized silhouette featuring lightweight materials, an elastic strap and thick, energy-returning midsole cushioning.
Sneakers for Running
It’s not enough to just make it to the finish line. It’s about actually enjoying the journey and looking good doesn’t hurt either. Nike makes that part easy with its Joyride sneakers. Eye-catching colorways, lightweight foam midsoles and stretchy Flyknit uppers make these sneakers a pleasure to wear on daily runs.
Sneakers for the Court or the Casual Life
If you’re a basketball player, you know your Nike basketball shoe options are vast. But even if basketball isn’t your thing, you can still rock the look off the court. A star lineup of NBA signature sneakers transcends the sport. Slide your feet into a pair of Kyrie Irving shoes. Midfoot straps stabilize the foot while bold details like Irving’s all-seeing-eye logo make these shoes the perfect choice for going places.
