The Best of 2021's Valentine's Day Sneaker Releases
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and although many of you have or will have romantic plans made for February 14, the most important thing for sneakerheads is the V-Day sneaker releases.
Footwear brands the world over love to get involved with Cupid’s holiday, as it gives them a chance to make romantic renditions of everyone’s favourite silhouettes. Last year was insane, with the obvious highlight being the StrangeLove x Nike SB Dunk Lows, but we also had plenty of low-key heaters such as the Reebok Club Cs and, of course, the Don’t Be Mad x New Balance 992.
While this year seems to be a little more toned down in terms of hype, there’s still a steady collection of subtle heat that sneaker brands have lined up for February 14. Take a look down below at the best of this year’s Valentine’s Day releases.
Nike Air Force 1 and Air Max 90 ‘Valentine’s Day’
Nike absolutely love a Valentine’s Day colourway, with the Air Force 1 seemingly always getting hit with Cupid’s arrow, and this year it has been joined by the Air Max 90. The two silhouettes rock the exact same colourway and materials, with white leather used as the base before subtle pink suede overlays and red Swooshes add some spice. They both also feature removable tongue tabs that reveal romantic messages.
adidas ‘Valentine’s Day’ Pack
Always keen to show off their romantic side, this year adidas have hit the bullseye with a collection of silhouettes that have been given the February 14 treatment. The four-silhouette pack features a Superstar, Ozweego, Continental 80 and NY 90 that all boast a similar theme. Each of the four have been doused in white, with contrasting accents and small heart hit on the lateral heel.
It seems adidas aren’t done with the Superstar just yet for the annual festival of love, going for round two with this slightly more subtle but a whole lot more luxe rendition. Going for the classic two-tone Superstar look, a heart and Trefoil insignia has been embroidered on the lateral heel. Spoiling their beloved shoe, adi have blessed the heel with a velvet-like material.
Converse Valentine’s Day Pack
Converse have joined the Valentine’s Day celebrations with a collection that is made with love! Consisting of the classic Chuck Taylor All-Star, Chuck 70, and the new-school Run Star Hike, the trio has been dressed in a slew of colourways that also feature romantic embroidery and cute all-over graphics. Available now on Converse’s webstore, alongside a collection of apparel, these would be the perfect gift to give to someone you love.
Swarovski x adidas Sambarose
Going for the luxury look on Valentine’s Day, whoever receives these on February 14 will be ecstatic!
