Nike Dunk Low PinK GS
We may be living in a "post-Panda Dunk world," but Nike Dunks with novelty colorways, like today’s pick, still hold a place in my heart. Yes, the pink-on-pink colorway works well for Valentine’s Day. But that pastel upper could carry your fits well into the Spring and Summertime.
Nike Dunk Low Pink Foam
Compared to the Dunks we mentioned above, these are slightly more refined, juxtaposing baby pink with a white upper, midsole, and chocolatey brown detailing. It’s giving Rosé and chocolate truffles.
adidas Gazelle Bold
Gazelles are just about everywhere in the current sneaker meta. If you want to stand out from the crowd and woo your sneaker-loving lover, step onto not one but three extra triple-stacked rubber outsole in this bold Gazelle variation.
Last Resort AB VM003-Canvas LO Classic
Red sneakers are one of my favorite picks when crafting a warm-weather outfit, especially when they come in classic silhouettes. For the skater in your life, this all-vegan Canvas LO Classic rocks a crisp red upper equipped with built-in rubber reinforcements at the side and toe to enhance stability and overall durability. Perhaps your V-day date will be at the skatepark this year?
Converse One Star Pro
You can’t go wrong with the classics when hunting for Valentine’s Day-ready sneakers. The One Star Pro has been a staple for many sneaker lovers for nearly 50 years thanks to its minimalistic design and skater-approved durability. That’s more than most relationships.
Saucony ProGrid Triumph 4
The perfect balance between function and performance? Saucony’s comfy Arch-lock technology and ProGrid tooling? Let’s not forget the obvious bold colorway. Barbie or Ken, you’re going to love these while out on the town on February 14.
Nike Nike Air Force 1 ’07 LX
These are sleek — another top contestant for "pink sneakers I can wear beyond Valentine’s Day." Don’t let anyone tell you that Air Force 1s are out of style. You can wear these comfortably almost all year round.
Nike Air Jordan 1 Low SE
Forget pink or red roses. This Jordan 1 Low comes in both of those colors across its matte leather body. Maybe get your lover a bouquet of these. They will last much longer than flowers.
adidas Stan Smith Valentine’s Day
A safe pick for an on-theme gift that your significant other will get a lot of mileage on, this Stan Smith classic has everything we have come to love about the sneaker but with some adorable heart-shaped detailing.
Nike Dunk Low Valentine’s Day
Red suede on a white upper and midsole? A burgundy check logo? Why, yes. These sneakers look and feel like young love on Valentine’s Day.
Nike Dunk Low Valentine’s Day GS Red
If Sweethearts — the candy maker who makes those heart-shaped candies with messages on them — it would look like something like this. This Dunk Low looks so good they are basically edible.
Nike Air Force 1 Low ’07 QS Valentine’s Day Love Letter
If you’re not in the mood for designing your own, but you are in the mood for love, then skip the middleman and cop this 2021 Valentine’s Day Air Force 1 ’07 Low. The Quickstrike release features subtle detailing like the "True Love Since ‘82" embroidery to the inside of the shoe.
Nike Dunk Low Valentine’s Day
The 2022 Valentine’s Day Dunk Low was a very frilly affair, embodying the over-the-top decoration we love to see in Valentine’s Day sneakers. The all-red uppers are topped off by a pink organza frill border to the Swoosh.
adidas Ultra Boost 5.0 DNA Valentine’s Day
Last year, the Three Stripes got in their feelings about the iconic Ultraboost 5.0. Dressing the silhouette in a grid of bright red hearts, the fan-favorite runner becomes an affectionate gift.
New Balance 57/40 Valentine’s Day
The New Balance 57/40 is a relatively new silhouette for the brand, which means there’s massive scope to dress it in wild color palettes. This peachy pink affair is a serious head turner.
Nike Jordan 8 Retro Valentine’s Day
Let’s run it back to 2018 when Nike dropped one of the most underrated Valentine’s Day sneakers ever in our opinion. The Nike Jordan 8 Valentine’s Day features a full, unmissable red finish which continues to impress well after the big day.
Reebok Club C 85 Valentine’s Day
We’ve made no secret about the fact that we love a massive gesture when it comes to Valentine’s Day kicks, but this subtle pair of Club Cs does the job too. The simple palette combines with understated touches like a heart next to the Reebok logo for a holiday-specific sneaker which lasts well past its intended date.
Nike Dunk SB Low Valentines Day
Dropping in 2014, the Nike Dunk SB Low Valentine’s Day features a classic white and red color combination. The pair is given a visual pop with a marbled texture to the red trims and a white cracked leather base.
Nike Air Force 1 Low Valentines Day 2021
An off-white sole unit and Swoosh counteract a clean white leather upper in this pared-back 2021 Valentine’s Day exclusive Air Force One from Nike. A marbled heart to the heel section introduces a rich red hue to the mix which continues at the heel tab and tongue label.
Strangelove x Nike SB Dunk Low
Strangelove Skateboards teamed up with Nike to drop this extremely cute Dunk Low just last year and it features everything we want in a Valentine’s Day sneaker. From plush pink velvet uppers to a skeletal heart symbol to the heel, the Strangelove x Nike SB Dunk Low gets full romantic marks from us.
