Every summer I see a lot of patriotic shirts, hats, and party merchandise in stores, just waiting for the rush of people celebrating Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Labor Day. These are fun for the holidays, but have you ever thought of expressing your love for the great old U.S.A. with patriotic sneakers?
Maybe your town has a holiday parade that you could wear them to, or a fireworks display, or maybe a morning fun run before the cookouts and parties begin.
Whether you’re looking for a good running shoe, a trainer, or just a comfortable “athleisure” style, here’s a look at some of the athletic shoe brands that make patriotic sneakers…
These soccer shoes are for use on artificial turf or natural grass. The shoes are also available with molded cleats or metal cleats for softball and lacrosse.
The Brooks Launch 5 is a lightweight neutral running shoe with comfortable cushioning and breathable mesh.
The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 18 is a moderate stability running shoe.
See more details here.
This is a limited edition of the classic running shoe that the company has been refining for 18 years.
The Nike Metcon 4 Americana trainers are for high-intensity workouts and are lightweight with good rubber traction to prevent slipping.
There are also several basketball shoes that Nike released in 2016 in honor of the summer Olympics, including the Hyperdunk United We Rise, Olympic Air More Uptempo, and Kobe 11 Elite Low USA.
This No Bull is a lightweight, breathable, flexible training shoe to protect your feet indoors or outdoors. For running, climbing, or lifting.
These shoes feature stars on one shoe and stripes on the other for a fun, patriotic look. They are running shoes with cushioning, stability, and motion control. Although they are listed as men's shoes, women can size down.
The company made their Micro-G running shoe in a limited flag edition, but they appear to be very hard to find at this point. Some of their cleats also come in red, white, and blue or stars and stripes designs. They have a Freedom Collection of patriotic clothing, but the few shoes in that line are not currently available in patriotic colors.
I found several other patriotic styles from brands such as Keds and Vans on websites like Amazon, eBay, Kohls, and Walmart. Most of them
have actual stars and stripes as well as patriotic colors. You can also choose a color scheme
at miadidas or nikeid to come up with your own salute to our country.
This is by no means a full list of what’s out there, but these are the most patriotic sneakers I could find on my search.
Whatever you choose, you
can find plenty of shoe brands and styles to express your allegiance to the USA
throughout the year.
