Celebrate Dad with these awesome gift ideas.
While pitches may be closed during this pandemic, many of us are keeping fit through regular workouts so that we’ll be back to our best when it’s time for that weekend 5-a-side. With Father’s Day around the corner, why not encourage Dad to get active with you and kit him out in some cool kicks?
This Father’s Day, we teamed up with the good people of Nike Singapore to scope out their best deals during their sale from 15 – 21 June 2020.

I salute those dads who keep themselves active and running well into their golden years. For those whose love for the long distances has not been curtailed, the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 sounds like the perfect Father’s Day present.
Expect a breathable lightweight upper built on top of a thick layer of responsive, springy foam for a cushioned run with great energy return.
If your dad is anything like mine, he loves a good power walk that can last hours. Casual walkers (or runners) would love the Joyride which contains thousands of beads in the sole that expands in all directions upon impact for adaptive cushioning with each step.
It does feel like an organic being on feet as it takes a couple of walks to mould itself perfectly around your feet. The Joyride cuts a bit smaller but expect the Flyknit upper to stretch over the contours of your feet and the beads to slowly form around the shape of your sole over time.
For dads who like a looser fit, go half a size up.
Dads who love geeking out at the latest tech would appreciate the Nike Zoom Fly 3 simply for its carbon fibre plate that takes it inspiration from the legendary Vaporfly. Throw in a dreamy bed of Nike React in the midsole and you’ve got yourself a smooth bouncy ride which packs some of Nike’s best innovations in one shoe.
And hey, it won’t hurt to get them in Nike’s iconic volt colourway either.
The Nike PhantomVSN silo is one of the BOOTHYPE team’s favourites in recent years. The innovative Quadfit mesh does an absolute beast of a job in providing a comfortable fit by stretching in all directions to accommodate all feet shapes while also providing superior lockdown.
Such a sensation has never been felt in a football boot before and if your dad loves his football, treat him to an experience unlike any other. The PhantomVSN 2 is also an absolute steal at S$223.99 and would make the perfect Father Day gift for the football lover.
There’s no school better than the old school. For dads who never miss their weekly matches, the Tiempo Legend 8 Academy MG is a must have. Soft calf-skin leather wraps your feet like a glove and will continue softening up with every game he plays in them.
But our favourite feature about this pair is the MG (multi-ground) stud pattern that makes it much easier on your joints and reduces the chance of stud pressure as you play on artificial ground and firm, natural grass.
All this in the latest Nike Neighbourhood pack colourway which is quite the looker.
Not every dad is old school. Some may still be as flashy as they were in their younger days. For the evergreen father who makes the difference in every match, there is only one football boot for him – the Nike Mercurial Superfly 7 Elite.
Lightweight for the nimble-footed with a thin Flyknit upper for a close touch on those mazy dribbles, the Mercurial Superfly has been the leading football boot for the goal-scoring game-changers on the pitch for generations.
This specific colourway from the Neighbourhood pack also includes a unique twist as compared to previous Superflys, a lightning motif on the Nike Swoosh that would make this a collector’s item for the boot fan.
For many of us, we wouldn’t have great instincts for swag without the influence of a cool dad. What better way to pay tribute to dad with one of Nike’s OG sneakers – the Air Max 90. That iconic waffle outsole, visible Air unit in the heel and that silhouette that still rocks 30 years on.
This special model comes with a slight metallic gold sheen that is pure flames – just like dad’s style.
Fathers with bright personalities deserve even brighter sneakers. The Nike Air Force 1 ’07 is a modern take on the classic AF1 with minor “Air” details incorporated for today. The Aqua colourway is the perfect summertime look coupled with a cool transparent Swoosh and Air cushioning.
And generous padding around the collar means that dad keeps comfortable while staying fresh on the streets.
