Highsnobiety’s Valentine’s Day Gift Guides are updated weekly in order to take new products, availability, and quantities into account. Click here to explore the rest of our guides.
We’re guessing you came seeking our assistance because chocolates and flowers just don’t cut it for your loved one anymore. We’ve also got a sneaking feeling you may not have come here with a loved one in mind at all. Anyway, who are we to judge. February 14 is on its way, and that means it’s time to show some love. And we love little else more than sneakers.
Whether you’re shopping strictly for me, myself, and I — or really are a kinder-than-average human being who wants to bestow the gift of footwear upon a particularly special person, we’ve put together a list of options that stick to the some-call-it-kitsch color palette of Saint Valentine. And these coveted pieces are all available at Stadium Goods.
Check our guide to the best valentine’s day gifts for the sneakerhead in your life below.
Nike Dunk Low “Viotech”
Not content with sticking to one or two shades? The Nike Dunk “Viotech” is a good option. Packing purple, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and more, this homage to a colorway first released in 2002 is ideal for that ray of sunshine in your life. Or someone who can’t make their mind up. You decide.
Golf le Fleur x Converse Chuck 70 “Almond Blossom”
From a mixed-up shoe to an all-out-cute one. While certainly not a fit for everyone, this collab effort from Tyler, the Creator and Converse goes hard on the adorable front. You’ll already know if it’s right for them.
Nike x Off-White™ Dunk Low “University Red”
These sneakers are red. Violets are blue. Buying the latest Nike x Off-White™ collab for your loved one? Well, look at you! This vivid red edition of Virgil’s recent team-up with the Swoosh is not easy to come by, making it a gift straight from the heart.
Air Jordan 11 “Bred 2019”
Continuing the claret, but in a less in-your-face fashion, the Air Jordan 11 “Bred 2019” is a re-release of a Jordan Brand icon. One of the original colorways of this sneakerhead favorite, this shoe helped Michael Jordan to the 1996 NBA Championship, and it’ll help you win their heart. Maybe.
adidas YEEZY Boost 350 V2 “Synth”
One of the limited regional-exclusive that dropped during the warmer months last year. This hazy pink edition of the popular 350 V2 line is the perfect accompaniment to the heat of a summer romance.
Air Jordan 1 “Meant to Fly”
The original of this black, red, and white sneaker dressed the feet of Michael Jordan in a 1985 TV advert in which the icon flew through the sky in slow motion. You probably won’t appear as heroic as MJ did in this TV spot by gifting this, but you’ll come close.
Golf Le Fleur x Converse One Star “Candy Pink”
As with the Tyler-influence piece above, this is a sneaker suitable for certain personalities. Its “Candy Pink” name says so.
adidas Raf Simons Ozweego
Is your Valentine living in 2060? This future-friendly iteration of the game-changing Raf x adidas Ozweego is definitely appropriate if so.
adidas x Human Made NMD HU
Must we explain? This has literally got a heart stamped on it.
Air Jordan 4 “Black Cat”
If the collection of red, white, and pink pieces above is likely to leave your loved one (or you) reaching for the sick bucket, don’t worry. This is one for the Anti-Valentine’s gang. As all-black as your soul.
