Sole Mates: A Nike Love Story

Sole Mates: A Nike Love Story

Love is in the air. But this year, trade sappy and sweet for sweat and speed with Nike’s assortment of Valentine’s-inspired running shoes.

Flowers, candy, and romance are great, but there are better ways to treat yourself. As varied as a box of chocolates, these two love-inspired collections from Nike are the perfect way to spice things up in both your running and casual style.

For Him: Love of Running Pack


Nike Air Max 2016

Love is meant to last forever, just like the enduring style of the Air Max 2016. Year after year, it simply grows stronger, relying on the foundation provided by Nike’s iconic full-length Max Air bag for comfortable cushioning you can see and feel with every step. A Waffle pattern on the outsole provides traction on any surface, and a mesh upper breathes new life into your run by allowing cooling airflow where you need it most. This Air Max 2016 is finished off with Flywire cables that wrap your foot in a warm embrace and a bold Fuze print that keeps things interesting.


Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 32

Tried and true, the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 32 is truly in it for the long haul. A dedicated running partner, this shoe never stops improving. Shedding bulk and dropping weight, this version features a new and improved single-layer mesh upper. And the makeover doesn’t stop there. A new full-length Cushlon foam midsole adds soft, responsive cushioning that really listens to your needs. Throw in a high-speed Zoom unit in the heel, environmentally preferred rubber in the outsole, and Nike’s total crimson Fuze print, and this running shoe is the total package: kind, sensitive, and edgy.


Nike Free 5.0 2015

The best relationships are the ones that truly allow you to be yourself. The Nike Free 5.0 2015 does just that, utilizing an outsole flex pattern that allows six directions of motion, freeing your feet to move as nature intended. So, if you’re looking to go au natural this Valentine’s Day, the Free 5.0 is the shoe for you. Add the breathable sandwich mesh upper and dynamic Flywire cables that hold your foot in place, and this running shoe is a total catch. Also featuring Nike’s fun and carefree Fuze print, the Free 5.0 is the perfect combination of comfort and carefree. What’s not to love?

For Her: Valentine’s Pack

Ladies, if you can’t get enough of the Nike Air Max line, we’ve got some red-hot hues to help you spice things up. Let us introduce you to Nike’s Valentine’s Pack.


Nike Air Max 2016

Strong and steady, the iconic Air Max 2016 leads the pack with dynamic Flywire cables for the secure fit you crave and a visible full-length Max Air bag for cushioned comfort that can go the distance. The shoe’s bright crimson upper ensures you’ll stand out from the pack and turn heads wherever you go.


Nike Air Max Excellerate

If things aren’t moving fast enough, look to the Air Max Excellerate. In exotic hyper orange, this tangy treat packs a combo of breathability and reinforcement for the perfect compromise every great relationship requires. Flywire cables still offer support when you need it, and a heel Max Air unit proves that while this shoe may take a walk on the wild side, it still brings that time-tested comfort you trust.


Nike Air Max Tailwind 8

Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to breathe new life into an old love. That’s exactly what Nike has done to the Air Max line with the Tailwind 8, a creative new take on an old technology. The Tailwind breaks up the solid Max Air bag into individual Air-Sole units, proving that a change of perspective is all it takes to rekindle a flame. If that’s not enough, the University Red upper is sure to have you going up in smoke, while Flywire cables lock you down and keep you grounded.
