Cue the fanfare: Black Friday 2021 is upon us. The historically one-day event morphed into a month-long shopping extravaganza this year, with so many brands and retailers (including Amazon, Nordstrom, Walmart, and Apple) slashing prices mere days after the clock struck midnight on Halloween. Now that this fine week of Thanksgiving is upon us, our heads are s-p-i-n-n-i-n-g in a futile attempt to keep up with the sales and deals dropping all around us. Among them, the much-anticipated Nike Black Friday sale.
Right now, there are thousands of items—spanning categories like shoes, clothing, and gear—that are up to 50 percent off. To escalate matters even further, you can take an additional 20 percent off the sale price of most styles using the code "BLACKFRIDAY" at checkout. Die-hard Nike fans know that scoring a major discount on new styles and its ever-expanding catalog of classics can be extremely difficult, so it goes without saying that this is a can't-miss occasion. It's an opportune time to stock up on shoes and gear for the year ahead or to get a head start on checking off your gift list. (And just so you know, the last day to order gifts from Nike to guarantee delivery by Dec. 24 is Dec. 15).
FYI: This official Nike Black Friday sale will run through the end of Thanksgiving week (Nov. 27). Based on previous years, we're expecting another blockbuster sale for Cyber Monday, but if you see something specific you want now, go ahead and pull the trigger—so many of the most-discounted pieces are already sold out. So lace up them Flyknits and run, don't walk, to all the links below.
Like a moth to a flame, where there's a Nike shoe sale I will be. And I will most certainly not be alone.
Whether you're looking for a new pair of everyday trainers for the gym, prepping to crush your New Year running goal, or just need a fresh new pair of casual kicks (or all of the above, really), you're sure to find plenty of options at hard-to-beat prices right now. Tried and true runners like the Flyknit or Pegasus are both marked down, and qualify for an extra 20% off with code "BLACKFRIDAY". Up your reps in the gym with an assist from the ZoomX Surge's responsive foam cushioning. Or, just take advantage of rare discounts on trendy new styles to add some oomph to your next 'fit.

Nike is the gold standard in activewear. And there has truly been no time like the present to stock up on all of your performance wardrobe essentials—from Dri-FIT shirts and tanks to compression boxer briefs and cold weather essentials. If I were a betting man, I'd wager you've had a sweat or two or seventy in the same trusty few, and it's high time for an overhaul. I know that I always stall on purchasing new gym clothes (why spend the money just to sweat in them?!) but wearing a fresh new set is always well worth it.
P.S. Even the just-dropped Nike men's yoga collection is included in the Black Friday sale and is eligible for an extra 20% off with code "BLACKFRIDAY". Namaste.

Nike Casual Wear
Over the past few years, Nike's catalog has really blossomed from that of a sportswear brand to a one-stop-shop for all your everyday casual attire. The brand's loungewear is among the best money can buy, and comes with the same affordable price tag as the activewear we know and love. Nike has also expanded into outerwear and cool designer collabs, like a capsule collection designed by Kim Jones, artistic director of both Dior and Fendi. Oh, and all of those aforementioned items are also included in this sale—and, you guessed it, an extra 20% off with code "BLACK FRIDAY"—so get hyped.
