Unwrap Nike's Best Easter-Themed Sneakers


Easter is coming and that means two things: plenty of chocolate and Easter-themed sneaker releases! Over the years, brands have celebrated the holiday in a big way, but none do it better than Nike. From egg hunts and chocolate-themed drops to delicious pastels, here are the best of Nike's Easter releases.

Nike Air Force 1 ‘Easter Egg’ (2005)

When we think of the most iconic Easter release of all time we think of the 2005 Nike Air Force 1 ‘Easter Egg’. It boasted a full patent leather upper, with each panel rocking different pastel hues and special egg tongue graphic. Twelve years later in 2017 out of nowhere Nike dug into their archives and decided to retro the colourway. Select European retailers dropped their stock on April 17, Easter Monday.

Nike Air Force 1 ‘Easter Egg’ (2006)

The year was 2006 and many sneakerheads were gearing up to wear their 2005 ‘Easter Eggs’ to the Sunday family feast however they were thrown a curveball! On January 1, Nike decided to drop a follow up AF-1 also called ‘Easter Egg’. It still utilised the patent leather look but different Easter pastel tones were chosen such as purples, greens and yellows.

Nike Air Max 180 'Easter Egg’ (2006)

In 2006, the Air Force 1 wasn’t the only silhouette from Team Swoosh’s arsenal that helped celebrate Easter! The Air Max 180 also received a specialised colourway that was similar to its AF-1 predecessor. Our favourite part was the Easter egg tongue graphic.

Nike Dunk High ‘Easter’ (2007)

The Nike Dunk High ‘Easter’ is somewhat of an Easter rarity. This tonal brown joint with polka-dot midsoles released for Easter in 2007, and up until recently remained in obscurity to some younger 'heads. Why has it resurfaced and resale prices skyrocketed? Well, because Travis Scott wore them! We bet there are some sneakerheads kicking themselves because they sold their pair for $50 back in the day.

Size? x Nike Air Max Light 'Easter Edition' (2012)

Another subtle take on an Easter edition, these Air Max Lights are highly regarded by Airheads for their superior quality and OG colour blocking. The suede is outrageously smooth, with simple yet refined colour palettes in classic Easter colours. If you've got a pair of these, or better yet the duo, sitting pretty in your collection, SF tip their hat to you.

Nike Lunar Force 1 Qs 'Easter Egg Hunt' (2013)

These are low-key compared to other releases, with crisp white uppers and only the outsole showing off a pop of colour, but the real fun was in the hunt. The special edition colours ('Blue Ice', 'Red Ice', 'Canary Ice', 'Green Ice', and 'Pink Ice') were limited to only 100 per colour and were shipped at random to retailers in nondescript boxing. If someone wanted a certain colour in their size, they'd have to go hunt it down!

Air Jordan 5 'Easter' (2022)

While an official Easter release, this AJ5 was a late hatcher due to the supply chain issues that plagued 2022 and ended up landing in May. It was well worth the wait though, with silky smooth pastel pink uppers accented by a breezy blue. Pops of silver and grey add some pop to the design, but the best detail is actually hidden on the insole, which features a watercolour-like striped palette that nods to painting eggs. For a finishing touch, the shoes also come packaged with a silver Jumpman charm bracelet.

VERDY x Nike SB (2024)

Not an official Easter pair, this one is an honourary mention because it's too good not to include. Vibing with the fluffy little chicken decorations your mum puts on the lunch table, the VERDY x Nike SB features a fluffy green base and textured blue overlays, as well as pink Swooshes and fluffy pink collars. The green base extends up the tongue, while tongue tabs take on a pink shade for a cohesive look. A two-tone yellow and green sole unit sits underfoot while matching yellow laces tie the pair up perfectly.
