The Best Nike Activewear for Warm Weather

Nike has the selection you need to put together enough activewear ensembles for every day of the week. Read on for tips on everything you can buy for men and women at Nike.


When it comes to tops, Nike has you covered in a variety of ways. The company offers the standard hoodies and pullovers, which may not seem appropriate for warm weather, but you may need a light layer during early mornings or in the late evening, depending on your local climate. The true staple of warm-weather activewear has to be T-shirts, though, and you can choose from plenty of those at Nike, as well. You'll also find a variety of vests and jackets, but those are suited for cooler temperatures, so we recommend only picking those up for the colder months or if you see an excellent deal.

Narrow your Nike search by filtering by graphic T-shirts, short-sleeve shirts, sleeveless and tank tops, and even polos or jerseys.

There are a lot of tops to choose from, but the Nike Sportswear Club T-shirt is a popular option, as is the Nike Sportswear Essential. You can narrow your search by filtering by graphic T-Shirts, short-sleeve shirts, sleeveless and tank tops, and even polos or jerseys.

Another option for tops is sports bras, many of which are part of the Dri-FIT line. Some even rank among Nike's bestsellers!


You can shop for all kinds of bottoms at Nike, including pants and tights, tracksuits, and compression and base-layer garments. However, the best lower-body item to wear in warm weather is obviously going to be shorts. Several bestselling options are available to choose from, depending on the materials and style you're wanting.

In the men's section, bestsellers include the Nike Sportswear Sport Essentials, Flex Stride running shorts, and Pro Dri-FIT. You can also pick up fleece styles, cargo shorts, and yoga shorts. In the women's section, you'll find Nike sportswear bestsellers like bike shorts, Pro Dri-FIT, Pro 365 high-rise, and Nike One. Note that these are bestsellers, but they're not a comprehensive list; there are a ton of options to shop.


When it comes to shopping for Nike shoes, the possibilities are nearly endless. The easiest way to start is by narrowing down your focus. You can shop by sport — think softball, golf, tennis, track and field, and volleyball — but you can also shop for walking shoes as well as sandals and slides. You'll see both traditional slides and flip-flops in this section, and list prices started around $25 at the time of publication. Bestsellers include the Icon Classic for around $60, but plenty of simple, comfort-focused designs are up for sale, too.

Helpful Tips for Saving on Nike Activewear

Become a Nike Member

Nike Member is the company's loyalty program, and if you're a fan of the brand, signing up is a must. It's free to join, but it comes with a fair amount of perks. For instance, you can shop member-exclusive styles and receive invites to events, workshops, and workouts. You'll also have access to customization options and be able to take advantage of free standard shipping on all orders.

See Which Colors Are Discounted

Nike offers several items with different color options so that you can find your perfect look. However, not all colors will be discounted at the same time. If you're not seeing a discount on the shade you want, check to see if other colors are eligible for extra savings.

Use Cash-Back Extensions

If you do a lot of online shopping, then you may already be familiar with cash-back extensions like Rakuten or Ibotta. The amount of cash back you can earn will vary based on which one you use, as well as if they're running a special promotion, but some of the better offers are around 8%-10% cash back on eligible purchases. Install the extensions and before you place an order, check to see which one has the best rate at the time. This ensures you save at least a little if no sales are happening.

Opt for Buy Now, Pay Later

Need new items now but don't want to pay in full yet? Consider going with a "buy now, pay later" option. Nike uses Klarna, and you can get your item right away but pay off your purchase in four installments. If you don't want to use a credit card (or don't have one), this is a great alternative that ensures you don't have to wait to save up the cash for what you need.
