Sneaker brands have been ramping up their Black Friday releases over the last few years, and this year the JD Sports Aus crew have rounded up the top picks to make your day that much easier.
Fast becoming one of the biggest shopping days of the year, Black Friday falls the day after Thanksgiving when your introspection backfires and you realise that you're not all that thankful for the manky old hand-me-down Nikes gaffer-taped to your feet.
Although the walls at JD are lined with a finely curated collection of sneakers, this Friday will see staff clearing room for a few extra-special drops.
First up, there’s a healthy representation of killer Nike Air Max models. The 95 and 97 have been dipped in darkness to give them the appearance of a ‘Triple Black’ make-up, but when you hit with a spotlight they flare up with gold 3M detailing. You’ll also get one last chance to cop the OG Air Max 97 ‘Silver Bullet’, as the end of the silhouette’s 20th anniversary year is quickly drawing to a close. For those who prefer a slab of foam underfoot, or something with a sleek modern design, there’s a form-fitting Huarache Ultra and an absolute killer of an EQT Support 93/17.
So if you find there’s a gaping shoe-shaped gap in your life (isn't there always?), head to your local JD Sports Australia store. It’ll pay to roll out of bed a little earlier than usual too; stores will be open an hour earlier than normal so you can start your day on a high new-shoe note.
