We love a Nike sale and, as you're here, it seems you do too. But what's better than a regular sale? A Black Friday sale. For Black Friday 2020 and the following Cyber Monday, it's predicted that the sport apparel giant will be knocking down its prices on several key items, from trainers to clothing and gear to sports equipment.

Black Friday, simply put, is one of the few days of the year this mega brand slashes its prices by up to 30 per cent. Black Friday usually lands on the final Friday of November, and extends through to the following Cyber Monday.

Consider this your chance to get Nike trainers, backpacks, gym T-shirts, hoodies, leggings, shorts — anything with a swoosh on it, in fact — on the cheap.

Unfortunately, Nike hasn't confirmed fully whether it's partaking in Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, but there's a good chance that prices will be cut across its website. Last year, the fitness giant released a Nike promo code for everything on site — including menswear, trainers and accessories — alongside a clearance sale.

Yesterday, Nike — in typical sales fashion — dropped the prices on a bunch of its best-selling kit, trainers and gymwear. Some of the brand's most popular trainers — including the Nike Epic React Flyknit 2, Nike Vaporfly 4% Flyknit and Nike Free X Metcon 2 — were included in the sale, where savvy shoppers can save 30% on the brand's best-sellers, for supreme comfort, easier workouts and safer lifts.

Not too bad for Black Friday, right? If Nike does the same sale for 2020 Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it'd be the perfect opportunity to pick up Christmas presents and to get a head-start on your January fitness goals. The best part, however, is that you needn't step outside and wrestle with the high street crowds to get a bargain you want.

If, however, you're unsure what Black Friday and the subsequent Cyber Monday are both about, here's a handy refresher.

Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the entire year and, in the US, it's considered to mark the beginning of the Christmas shopping period. It's punctuated by incredible deals on everything you can imagine, with a sale that lasts all weekend and cruises straight through to 'Cyber Monday', the last day of sales where shoppers grab a serious bargain on presents for themselves and, just maybe, for others.

As for the difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there isn't really one. Some discounts are slightly more impressive on Friday over Monday, but they're very similar, if not identical.

Whichever sale you favour, Brits spent an eye-watering £2.4bn over last year's Black Friday sales — almost double that of 2017. But, there's another question...

When is Black Friday?

Black Friday will be Friday 27th November. However, you'll want to keep your eyes on your favourite retailers, as many deals drop throughout the month and especially the week leading up to Friday 27th November.
