Young Love: ValDay Sneaker Releases


Converse Valentine's Day Collection

Converse Valentine's Day Collection

While the candy companies are churning out those chalky candy hearts and boxes of chocolate that are  like life, our favorite sneaker brands are busy  bringing us the hottest releases for the lady or gentleman who  has everything. Nike, Vans, Converse, Puma and Adidas are all dropping candy sweet colourways that, while inspired by the holiday, you’ll be sure to wear year round.

Puma Valentine's Day

Each collection sticks with the typical reds and pinks associated with Valentine’s Day while also putting their own spin on the traditional themes. Converse urges us to forget chocolate and give rubber by covering their classic hi and low tops with everything from the word of the season to chalk hearts, without going too overboard on the V-day thing. Puma and Vans also kept the Val day inspiration limited to the selected colourways and trims. While Vans’ high-top is white with red trim, Puma placed a kiss on their high-top very apropos of the holiday. I must say that understated is the way to go when copping a pair of these for your guy, unless he’s into sneakers that look like they are fresh from a Lisa Frank folder.
Nike Valentine's Day

While Converse, Puma and Vans played it cool, Nike went all out with the Valentine’s theme and produced a collection that looks straight out of a pack of cards you hand out in elementary school.  The ladies Aerofit High in both varsity red and lilac along with the Air Force 1  Lows that come in leather with giraffe like patent details and canvas are a nbit too obivous for me, although they do come in a super awesome box. The standout of the collection and all of the Val Day drops as far as I’m concerned is the Nike Big Nike Valentine’s Day which while obnoxiously pink feature an ode to love n the tongue. Poetic and adorable will always win me over.

Adidas Valentine's Day Collection

Last but far from least, Adidas delivers another red and white collection featuring two Superstars, a Nizza Hi and a Nizza Lo. This collection is classic Adidas with added love. Both Nizzas feature “I love you” lace locks and the Nizza Hi is covered in hearts and the classic Adidas stripes.

All in all I’d totally rather a fresh pair of sneakers than a heart shaped box of chocolates when February 14 rolls around.
