I love the look of that Nike swoosh on my kicks and my clothes. It’s empowering, but expensive! Don’t fret: I’ve got some tips to get Nike gear for cheap.

For instance, you can save anywhere from 40 – 70% off if you know where to look. Still on the fence about those new Nike shoes now? Stop hesitating and just do it.

And just so you’re on top of Nike’s deals, follow the KCL Nike Deals page and download the free KCL app, too.


1. Catch a crazy deal on Proozy.com and save at least 39%.

Proozy.com is an eCommerce site selling outdoor and athletic wear. Merchandise is limited and sells out fast, but you can score some amazing Nike deals.

Here’s a recent women’s shoe deal I found:

Buy 1 Nike Women’s Air Max Pegasus 36 Running Shoes (reg. $119.99) $67.99
Shipping is free on orders over $50+
Final Price: $67.99
Total Savings: 43%

2. Shop the Nike Factory Store sale online and save at least 40%.

Plan to save at least 40% off retail at the Nike Factory Store, which is full of overflow merchandise priced to sell.

You can now shop the Nike Factory sale online, but previously you couldn’t. However, you won’t see those additional clearance sales, just a price markdown.

Here’s an example of an item I found on their online clearance that came at an unbeatable price:

Buy 1 Nike Air Max 2090 Sneakers (reg. $125) $69.97
Shipping is free for Nike Members
Total: $69.97
Savings: 44%


3. Shop Nike Black Friday deals at Kohl’s and save up to 40%.

Kohl’s Black Friday sales are always a good time, especially if you want some Nike clothing deals. On top of great prices, you earn $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 you spend. During Black Friday, Kohl’s runs shipping specials — typically free after you spend $25 — or you can pick up your order in store for free!

With the pandemic still underway, there’s no telling what Kohl’s may do this year, but they are offering several ways to shop safely:

Here are a couple of Nike deals I saw during Black Friday 2020 at Kohl’s:

Buy 1 Women’s Nike Funnel Neck Fleece Hoodie (reg. $50) $29.99, sale price
Final Price: $29.99
Savings: 40%
Buy 1 Men’s Nike Fleece Hoodie (reg. $45) $29.99, sale price
Final Price: $29.99
Savings: 33%


4. Hit up Macy’s during Black Friday to save 60% on Nike socks.

Who doesn’t want socks in their stocking? Especially when they’re 60% off at Macy’s!

Here’s an example of a great deal I saw last year:

Buy 1 Nike Men’s Cotton 6-Pack Socks (reg. $20) $7.99, sale price
Final Price: $7.99
Total Savings: 60%


5. Shop the End-of-Season Sale at Finish Line to save up to 50% on Nike.

Finish Line’s End-of-Season Sale in January-February and again in September-October is a great time to shop online, especially for Nike. Here are some deals I’ve scored:

Buy 1 Boys’ Little Kids’ Nike Huarache Extreme Casual Shoes (reg. $69.99) $35, sale price
Final Price: $35
Total Savings: 50%
Buy 1 Men’s Air Jordan Retro 3 Basketball Shoes (reg. $190) $135, sale price
Final Price: $135
Total Savings: 29%

Keep in mind that you don’t need to live near a Finish Line physical store to shop the deals. Finish Line offers free shipping when you spend $30.



6. If you live near one of the few Nike Clearance Stores, get there pronto and save up to 70% off retail.


Nike Clearance Stores are the last stop for Nike merchandise that doesn’t sell, rather than for overflow inventory like the Factory Stores. Unfortunately, you can’t shop these deals online yet.

Still, you could save 70% off retail prices, so make it a point to stop in if you have a Nike Clearance Store near you with the Nike store locator.


7. If you’re a women’s size 8.5 or a men’s size 7 or smaller, buy kids’ sizes and save $20 or more!

You guys, Nike fully expects you to take advantage of this hack for certain styles. They even have a handy dandy size chart to help you out!

Here’s how it works:

Let’s say you’re a men’s size 7 and you want the Nike React Presto, which retails at $130. The same exact shoe in Big Kids size 7Y is $105! Boom. You just saved $25.


8. Score BOGO 50% off at Rack Room Shoes.

Rack Room will always give you Buy One, Get One 50% off on your first purchase both in-store and online.

Rack Room also runs promos regularly, like in August 2020 you could get BOGO half off plus an additional $10 off with the coupon: NEWSHOES for orders of $79+.

Here’s how that scenario could work:

Buy 1 Nike Women’s Revolution 5, $64.99
Buy 1 Nike Boys Renew Rival GS, (reg. $59.99) $29.99 with BOGO 50% off sale
$10 off NEWSHOES coupon code
Total for both pair: $84.98
Total Savings: 33%


9. Become a Nike Plus member and save 30% plus free shipping.

The Nike Friends and Family Pass is issued to Nike Plus members once a season. It’ll get you 30% off a single purchase at Nike and Converse Factory stores, as Nike owns both. That’s right, just the factory and clearance stores! You can also use gift cards interchangeably at both stores.

You’ll also get free shipping on your Nike.com orders.

Oh, and make sure you check your email! They’ll occasionally send out promo codes for doing activities with their app. I recently got a 20% code just for going for a run. Score!

It’s free to become a Nike Plus member. Just fill out the form and you’re all set.



10. Shop spring sales at Dick’s Sporting Goods and save up to 50% on Nike backpacks.

Why wait for back-to-school sales to get a good backpack deal? I see Dick’s Sporting Goods drop their prices every March for their spring sale. Here’s what I found last year:

Buy 1 Nike Vapor Power 2.0 Training Backpack (reg. $70) $35, sale price
Final Price: $35
Total Savings: 50%

And if you’re worried about Dick’s due to the pandemic, have no fear: You can still shop their sales online! In July 2020, I saw Dicks was selling select Nike shoes for 25% off online.


11. Sign up for Nike.com emails and save 25% on your birthday.

Sign up for Nike.com emails and get a 25% off promo code during your birth month, plus other promos throughout the year. I’ve seen promos for free shipping, 5% cash-back savings, and even as much as 30% off.


12. Get a 10% student or military discount at Nike.com and through the Nike app.

If you’re a member of the armed forces or a high school, college, or university student, you’ll get a 10% off student discount at Nike.com once a month.

Just verify your status and Nike will give you a promo code. You can’t use it at Converse, and the only way you can stack it is with a free shipping code. So you should only take advantage of this deal if there’s no other way to get more than 10% off.


13. Buy like-new Nike clothes on Poshmark and save.

I regularly see Nike activewear selling for at least 70% off on Poshmark, an online consignment store that lets you browse by brand and size.


14. Get money back for your online Nike purchases with Rakuten.

If you like getting rewarded for shopping, then you have to download Rakuten. When you do, any site Rakuten has a partnership with will give a percentage back after your purchase.

It’s free money, and you can ask for your check in the mail whenever you want! For Nike.com, in July 2020 you could get up to 8% of back of your total purchase.



15. Use price comparison tools to find the best online price.

Online price comparison tools, like Honey or Wikibuy, compare prices across the web and offer you the cheapest price.

If you’re looking to shop online, then don’t buy before checking for the best deals online first!


16. Shop FamousFootwear.com for steep Nike sales.

Buy 1 Women’s Renew Ride Running Shoe (reg. $89.99) $59.99, sale price
Total: $59.99
Savings: 40%
