Nikes are getting harder to find at stores. Here's why
'We took a chance on them'
A fresh pair of sneakers? Cool. Paying full retail? Not so cool.
There’s really nothing like strutting around in a brand new pair of sneakers, whether it’s on the street, in the gym, or even just around the house (you know you do it, too, when you get the new kicks home) . We especially love Nike because of their innovative, stylish, and high-tech sneaks! But we’re not about to shell out over $ on shoes… no matter how cool they are.
Instead, we employ the following tactics anytime we shop for sneakers to ensure we’re getting the best deal possible. Read on for our Nike shopping tips!
First things first, join NikePlus and get free shipping.
It’s simple, it’s FREE, and it’s rewarding! Get in the know on all things Nike by joining NikePlus. It not only makes checking out a breeze, but NikePlus members get FREE standard shipping or 2-day shipping for only $5 on all purchases!
Plus, you can use your membership to sign into the mobile app and use all the training features it has for athletes!
Sign up for their email list.
You’re probably already on their website anyway, so sign up for their email list, too. Not only will you get notified of the latest deals and promotions, but you can also enter your email in order to receive a special discount on your birthday! We’ve seen Nike send promos for $20 off of a $ purchase though others have reported receiving 25% off as their birthday surprise! Either way, you’re bound to get a good deal just for providing them with your birth date!
Now that you’re equipped with some discounts, it’s time to check the selection!
Before anything else, check clearance in-store and online!
Do you like saving up to 80% off retail? Yep, same here. At the Nike Factory Store, don’t even bother with the displays of fresh merch in the front. Instead, high tail it to the back wall where you’ll find a sea of orange boxes containing marked down sneakers, which can even have additional savings on top of them. If you’re buying the sneakers as a gift, note that most boxes have the tops cut off to fit as much inventory in as possible, but you can ask an associate for a fully intact box to make gifting easier.
Don’t feel like shopping in-store? Check out the sale section on Nike.com instead!
The site often features additional percentages off their clearance selection plus free shipping (since you signed up for the NikePlus program)! We like to start by switching the sorting drop down to “$-$$” and narrowing down the filter to selected sizes.
Broaden your selection beyond just adult shoes.
If you’re a size or smaller, you can totally make kid’s Nike sneakers work for you! These savings are often higher since the kid’s shoes tend to be less expensive, and you can typically find the same exact shoe (with additional color options no less).
Just look at the comparison between the Women’s Free RN and the Big Kid’s Free RN — same shoe style but the kid’s version is $10 less and has more color options! When trying to figure out your youth size, just change the size accordingly with this size chart.
So when you found a pretty great steal on the sneakers you like, there’s still another step to take to maximize your savings potential.
Before checking out, look for a discounted gift card.
You could be missing out on another 4% in savings! Websites like Raise and Gift Card Granny have a multitude of discounted gift cards to purchase, though you’ll want to be sure to double check the fine print for exclusions and conditions, such as in-store or online only redemption — eGift cards are typically for online purchases only, while physical cards and vouchers may be accepted both online and in-store.
Even sweeter, you might be able to come across an even bigger gift card savings like $40 for a $50 Nike gift card that we occasionally see.
Get even more savings as a student or military member.
If you’re a student or military personnel, you’re eligible for a 10% off coupon to use at Nike.com, Nike stores, and Converse stores. The military discount also applies to both Hurley and Converse, though the student discount is not valid at Hurley.
If you don’t have any luck buying directly from Nike, there’s still hope in finding a great deal on Nike sneakers.
Don’t limit yourself to just the Nike website and stores.
We’ve seen discounts between % off retail prices at department stores like Kohl’s, Finish Line, and Nordstrom Rack. If that’s not convincing enough, head to Marshall’s where sneakerheads have found rare styles at insane steals!
You can even look into other e-tailers with selections of both new and used Nike shoes.
Browsing through online consignment sites like Swap, ThredUp, and Poshmark can return some pretty great finds for discounted sneakers — like savings up to 70% off. You may even come across rare or discontinued styles for a great deal! Even better, with Poshmark you can potentially bargain to trade clothes with sellers, making your “purchase” virtually free! How sweet is that?!
All that said, you probably don’t have all the time in the world to scope out savings on the trendiest sneakers. But we do!
Always check Hip2Save for the latest Nike deals.
We’re constantly searching for the hottest deals, and we usually find a new Nike steal every day! Make sure you bookmark this brand page on Hip2Save.com to stay up to date with the best savings on Nike!

Why Are China’s Consumers Threatening to Boycott H&M and Other Brands?
Major clothing brands that rely on the Chinese market are caught in a bind as Beijing and the West harden their stances on the crackdown on Xinjiang.
H&M faces a boycott. Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas, Nike, Converse and Calvin Klein have lost their brand ambassadors. Burberry has had to give up an online video game partnership.
Western brands are suddenly feeling the wrath of the Chinese consumer, the very shoppers who for years have clamored for their products and paid them vast amounts of money. Egged on by the ruling Communist Party, Chinese online activists are punishing foreign companies that have joined a call to avoid using cotton produced in the Chinese region of Xinjiang, where the authorities are waging a broad campaign of repression against ethnic minorities.
The sudden bout of rage lays bare the vulnerability of foreign companies as tensions worsen between China and the United States and other countries. Lawmakers in the United States in particular who have been increasingly critical of China have pressured international companies to take a public stance on China’s human rights practices, including in Xinjiang. That makes the companies convenient targets for Chinese officials who are aggressively pushing back against American officials.
“A lot of Western countries and China are pretty black-and-white on this issue. There’s not a lot of gray,” said Trey McArver, a co-founder of Trivium China, a consultancy that helps foreign businesses sell in China, referring to the opposing stances over Beijing’s policies in Xinjiang. “You can’t agree with both of them, so I don’t think it’s an easy answer.”
China has not said as much, but its campaign against these brands began days after the United States and other Western countries imposed fresh sanctions on top Chinese officials this week. These sought to punish Beijing for abuses against the Uyghurs and other minorities, which have been well documented by foreign media and rights groups. There is also growing evidence that cotton from Xinjiang is linked to coercive labor programs and mass internment of as many as one million Uyghurs, Kazakhs and other largely Muslim minorities, the U.S. government and rights groups say.
It isn’t clear what the long-term impact might be on Western companies that depend on China to make or buy their products. On Thursday, there was still a steady stream of shoppers at several popular H&M and Nike outlets in Shanghai and Beijing. Previous state media-driven pressure campaigns against companies like Apple, Starbucks and Volkswagen failed to dent Chinese demand for their products.
Still, their position could become increasingly precarious as Beijing looks for ways to counter the narrative. And it is no stranger to flexing its economic muscle for political ends.
Years earlier, after South Korea embraced an American antimissile defense system, the Chinese government fed anti-South Korean sentiment in the country that forced Lotte Mart, a popular South Korean supermarket, to shut many of its outlets. The missile system stayed, but Beijing was still able to exact pain.
Such tactics have become a common feature of China’s increasingly aggressive brand of diplomacy. Chinese diplomats now routinely deploy a mix of threats and nationalistic messages to browbeat Beijing’s critics and assert the country’s interests.
“The Chinese people do not allow some foreign companies to eat Chinese food and smash Chinese bowls,” said Hua Chunying, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman in Beijing, on Thursday. Ms. Hua appeared to be playing on a phrase traced to Xi Jinping, China’s top leader, who, in demanding loyalty to the party, said in “Never allow eating the Communist Party’s food and then smashing the Communist Party’s cooking pots.”
That style has its fans at home.
“H&M’s incident yesterday shocked the world, and I was very disgusted,” said Luo Yanqiu, a year-old bakery worker in Shanghai who had gone to an H&M store on Thursday with a friend to ask shoppers to boycott the brand.
At a Nike store in Shanghai, Yang Meilu, a year-old student, said she was there because she was curious how many shoppers would show up.
Ms. Yang said she was deeply troubled that Nike had raised concerns about labor in Xinjiang. She said she was now skeptical of the brand. “I probably would not buy it from now on,” she said.
Chinese state media outlets have overtly stoked the outrage with hashtags on social media and bold headlines. Government officials have sought to depict the outcry as authentic, with a Commerce Ministry spokesman saying on Thursday that Chinese consumers were “hoping that the relevant companies would correct their wrong practices.”
For decades, foreign companies operating in China have been largely wary of appearing critical of the Chinese government. And in recent years, several of them have been besieged by a growing army of nationalistic online users, who have been ready to pounce on the three T’s: Tibet, Taiwan and Tiananmen. All have been quick to apologize, and emerged largely unscathed.
This time, the outrage is erupting against the backdrop of the worst downturn in relations between China and the West in decades. As the Biden administration pursues an alliance to curb China’s influence, Beijing, emboldened by its success in curbing the coronavirus outbreak at home, is pushing back hard against what it perceives as hypocrisy.
“It might get more heated,” said Jörg Wuttke, the president of the European Chamber of Commerce in China, in an email. More European companies are going to be caught between a rock and a hard place, he said. “Everybody has to service their domestic crowd.”
But for many of these companies, the issue is more complicated than a matter of managing public relations.
To obtain cotton, the companies almost certainly need to get it from Xinjiang, which produces 87 percent of the material in China. Roughly one in five cotton garments sold globally contains cotton or yarn from Xinjiang.
But in January, the Trump administration announced a ban on imports of cotton from Xinjiang, as well as all products made with those materials, putting pressure on brands to check their supply chains. Rights groups such as the Uyghur Human Rights Project have also been pushing American lawmakers to enact sweeping legislation that would block imports from Xinjiang, unless companies can prove that their supply chains are free of forced labor.
Ms. Hua, the Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, on Thursday denounced the accusations of forced labor, saying Beijing’s policies in Xinjiang provided employment opportunities to lift people out of poverty.
“The accusation of ‘forced labor’ in Xinjiang is entirely a lie concocted by certain anti-China forces,” she said. “The purpose is to discredit China’s image, undermine Xinjiang’s security and stability and impede China’s development.”
H&M, the Swedish retailer, has borne the brunt of China’s outrage. On Wednesday, the Communist Youth League, an influential Communist Party organization, and state media highlighted a statement that the company made eight months ago setting out its concerns about forced labor in Xinjiang. That prompted Chinese internet users to call for a boycott.
The company responded on Wednesday by saying its statement last year on Xinjiang did not “represent any political position.” That made internet users, who were baying for an apology, only more furious.
On Thursday, a mall in Xinjiang’s capital, Urumqi, shut an H&M outlet, urging the company to apologize formally to people in the region. In the southwestern city of Chengdu, workers dismantled the company’s sign from a store.
“I don’t expect this to die down,” said Surya Deva, an associate professor at the City University of Hong Kong and a member of the United Nations working group on business and human rights. “This is a different trajectory and a different era.”
Justine Nolan, a professor in Sydney at the faculty of law and justice at the University of New South Wales, said it was also an opportunity for foreign companies to demonstrate their support for human rights.
“They are now being put to the test,” she added. “This is the red line for them — and it’s not an issue that they can afford to be halfhearted about.”

Reaching the middle, she gestured to us to understand what we would wait here. As quietly as a mouse, a woman conductor darted out the door. After ten minutes of waiting, we were asked to take turns to go to the doctor's appointment. The doctor's office looked more like an archive than a place that any patient was used to. Many shelves with a huge amount of books piled on them surrounded a man sitting on a high chair at a small table heaped with piles.Jordan 1 UNC at Nike Outlet - Top 5 Sneaker Finds of July by followers Insane Finds
Her. The student Vitya, on the other hand, almost all the time drowned his gaze in the cleavage of the laughing Vika, who, obviously, did. Not bother in any way. From conversations we moved on to games: at first simple, then more interesting.
