12 Nike Trainers That She'll Love More Than A Dozen Roses

There are more ways to show you care, you know. Swap teddy bears for the latest Nike trainers for a gift that'll keep on giving long after 14th February. 

Valentine's Day is cute and all, but it’s half let down by all the clichés and predictable gestures. While a bouquet of roses may seem romantic at first glance, let's face it, it's a bit outdated - that’s money that could be well spent towards something that’ll last a lot longer than 7 days. Not to mention that the romance definitely plummets when you have to peel off the petrol station sticker. At the heart of it, it’s a day to celebrate love in all its forms, whether it’s treating your significant other or just remembering to show yourself some love too. So, this year, it's time to break away from tired gifting tropes and show some proper love by giving something that speaks to the recipient's soul. And the thing that we really, really want right now? That’s trainers.

As we transition from the depths of boot season into the promise of spring, there's no better time to freshen up our wardrobes. And what could be fresher than slipping into a pair of box-fresh kicks? Nike's new season line-up is enough to make any sneakerhead go gooey-eyed, but even those who don’t consider themselves an obsessive will find themselves being wooed over with what’s on offer. One standout is the Y2K Runner, a nostalgic nod to the early 2000s with its sleek silhouette and bold colourways – a sure-fire way to win the heart of Gen-Z, or anyone who loved rocking the throwback look the first time around.

For a more literal way to feel the love, what better time than V-Day to indulge is sickly-sweet shades of pink and a hint of red? Nike’s Air Force One Wild comes in a stunning rose pink hue that's couldn’t be more appropo for the season of love – and it’s exactly the style to jazz up all the jumpers and jeans you’re wearing right now.


So, why settle for a dozen overpriced roses when you can give the gift keeps on giving? Below are 12 Nike trainers that we would genuinely love to receive this season, as a token of affection or just as a treat to take our spring wardrobes to the next level.
