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.
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.
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.
