Moms love a good deal, and there’s no better deal than under retail. You don’t have to break the bank for classic or contemporary styling, and we’ve proven that by bringing together some of our favorite picks – for you or Mom. Like every list of under retail products, the designation of “under retail” is reliant upon the marketplace, if sellers suddenly decide they want to raise their prices, then these products will no longer be under retail. But we’ve included them because at the time we put this list together, they were all available under their original retail prices.

Nike Air Max 90 Infrared

There’s nothing better than the words “classic” and “under retail” coming together. The Air Max 90 Infrared from Nike is one of the most iconic colorways to ever come out of The Swoosh and even though it’s rereleased more than a few times, every time it returns it receives a hero’s welcome. With fans clamoring for pairs the world over it’s a little bit of a surprise that sizes are showing up for below retail, but we’re not one to look a gift horse in the mouth – and neither should Mom. This classic pair is perfect for a classic Mom.


Nike x Stüssy Air Huarache Dark Olive (2021)

While the Stüssy x Nike Air Huarache in Dark Olive doesn’t have the same institutional longevity as the above Infrared, there are still plenty of fans that have loved the shoes since they first released in 2000. The 2021 rerelease is just as nice, with all the right pieces and colors in all the right places. Huaraches look especially good in smaller sizes where we’re seeing some pairs going for below retail. The look is sporty and fairly neutral, fitting them into any collection.

Nike x OFF-WHITE Women’s NRG Tank Top

There’s no bigger name in sneakers than OFF-WHITE, especially when paired with Nike, so any time a piece drops below retail is a great time to pick it up. The OFF-WHITE x Nike NRG Tank Top has an energetic tie-dye design that practically screams spring, and with sizes dropping below the retail price you can get Mom all the brand name draw without the brand name prices. Plus it’s a lot of look for not a lot of cash.

Nike x OFF-WHITE Women’s Running Jacket

It’s still the early spring and that means unpredictable weather, so light jackets are a great gift and an even better outfit plan. This OFF-WHITE x Nike Running Jacket offers all the design of the OFF-WHITE x Nike collaboration with none of the price increases. Plus, with a black base and a bright yellow arm pocket, the look is just versatile enough to use as a staple while promising an alluring pop of color.

OFF-WHITE Quote Luggage

For the Mom on the go, you couldn’t do much better than OFF-WHITE’s Quote Luggage in White. The hard-shelled bag fits anything you need for a long weekend and slides comfortably into the overhead compartments. The exterior is clean as a whistle with a bold vacuum-formed OFF-WHITE logo taking up almost the entire design bag. It may require some care to keep the bright white bag clean, but the contrasting black hardware keeps the design fresh.


adidas Ultra Boost 40 DNA White

If Mom is always on the go, there’s nothing better than a comfortable shoe. adidas’ Ultra Boost has always been a fan favorite, and what’s made the shoe a perennial hit is still in place. The bouncy BOOST sole offers the right amount of response for anyone, especially those who aren’t happy being on their feet all day, and the white colorway keeps it clean for the season. Plus the Primeknit upper is flexible enough to move with any foot shape. All that AND it’s under retail? You can’t beat it.


Nike x Stüssy Insulated Pullover Jacket

The weather outside isn’t frightful, but sometimes you need a very warm layer and there’s nothing better than a hoodie with some extra padding. This Nike x Stüssy Pullover Insulated Pullover Jacket is one of our very favorite pieces in a long time thanks to its unique execution on expected standards. The silhouette is classic, but the quilted and insulated styling brings this piece to the next level. We especially love that it’s black, letting what’s special about the pullover show itself off.


Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit 3 Pure Platinum

While the Air Vapormax Flyknit 3 from Nike isn’t as well known as the above adidas Ultra Boost, some Moms just like to stick to their favorite brands and this pair is just as good. The Flyknit upper is reactive to foot movement, while the 360° air bubble sole is just enough extra tech to make the shoes feel like a window to the future. Considering Pure Platinum colorway is super clean and consistently under retail, our favorite way to jump into the future is on discount.

Yeezy Calabasas Crewneck Sweatshirt Scorpio

The best way to approach changing seasons is with layers, and this Yeezys Calabasas Crewneck Sweater is just thin enough to bring some extra warmth without adding too much bulk. We don’t have to tell you that Yeezy is one of the most powerful names in sneakers and streetwear, so this is a great way to get Mom ‘fitted in a favorite without breaking the bank.

Nike x Cactus Plant Flea Market Shoebox Hooded Pullover

Some Moms like their style to be subtle and subdued, while others just want to go nuts. This Nike x Cactus Plant Flea Market Shoebox Hooded Pullover mimics the bright orange of a Nike shoebox with the logos and taglines that tend to be printed right on the cardboard, making this the right choice for the bold and the beautiful. Your Mom is a standout, so let her stand out.

Yeezy Calabasas Track Pant Umber / Core

2020 is the year we all learned how to take lounging seriously, but those lessons mean nothing if you don’t put them into practice. The adidas Yeezy Calabasas Track Pant has become a favorite of expert loungers, and the Umber / Core colorway is one of the most accessible, routinely clocking in under retail. Whether you’re grabbing the pair for yourself or a Mom in your life, someone’s going to be cozy as soon as it arrives.
