Named after the infallible ancient Greek Goddess of Victory, Nike is the world’s largest supplier of athletic shoes and apparel and is a household name around the globe as the leading sportswear brand. Now famous enough to be identified by its logo, the ‘swoosh’ (or ‘tick’, to many), there’s no denying that Nike is a giant in the sports world and beyond. It is a firm favourite and versatile in terms of where and when you can wear it – we love them here at Student Discount Squirrel.

A great all-purpose rucksack in a range of neutral shades, this bag is ideal for use at uni, when travelling or just to cart your day-to-day essentials around. Adjustable and padded straps give extra comfort alongside a padded back panel, and the roomy dual-zip main compartment can accommodate plenty of well-packed items.

At 45.5cm high, 38cm wide and approximately 18cm deep, it’s not too cumbersome to carry around and will fit within standard hand luggage guidelines.

Marketed as men’s running gloves, these are, in reality, suitable for all. The flexible sweat-wicking fabric allows for your mitts to keep toasty whilst not clamming up and can be used for outdoor sports as well as general cold-weather wear.

The mesh sections allow for air-flow to keep digits dry but not too let in cold air and the thumb and forefinger are touch-screen compatible to allow you to use your devices on-the-go without having to faff around and take gloves off.


Perfect for keeping hair off of sweaty foreheads or just for styling your mop whilst you get on with the rest of your day, these thin elastic headbands won’t catch or rip your hair but will scrape it back effectively.

Available in two colour selections, there’s something to go with every outfit (or hair colour!) and even when you undoubtedly lose one, there’ still plenty in the pack to use. These headbands are unisex and small and comfortable enough to be worn under a hat or headgear if required.

There are so many potential items to choose from but the above were ones we liked at the time.


Below are some questions we have recently been asked:

How often is there a Nike discount code? And when buying with an offer, Nike coupons or sales items, do you get free standard shipping as normal?”

Nike often has good sales on everything from Air Max to sports tops. It doesn’t matter whether you have purchased an item with a promo code you can still often take advantage of free standard delivery, it is best to check with the official Nike website for confirmation or even pop into one of their amazing stores – we love the flagship one on Oxford Street.

“Where is the best place to get Nike codes and deals?”

Not to blow our own trumpet, but our own official page lists all the best up to date offers, Nike promo codes, sale items, coupon codes and more – valid for students and often the general public too. Other leading discounts sites such as Martin Money Saving Expert, Unidays and Daily Mail may also list.

“What is Nike members?”

This is a good way to save and be kept in touch about offers and deals – it is basically signing up for their newsletter. Highly recommended.
