No one thought we would be celebrating Christmas in the midst of a pandemic, yet here we are. This year, things are a little different: We’re pulling our lens back to examine our year and shine the spotlight on little things over the next 12 days – both material and immaterial that one can either gift or savour now or in the next year. Here’s Day 7, for those looking for a gift that few others will have.
Come 25th of December, there’s nothing a sneakerhead wants to find wrapped up under their Christmas tree more than a pair of sneakers.
It doesn’t matter that they already have over 30 pairs from Nike, Adidas, Puma or whatever, most of which you’ve hardly seen them wear. That is not the point; sneakers are today’s currency of cool, and their collections are their pride and glory.
And while getting them a pair yourself certainly robs them of the thrill of waiting for a sneaker drop in a long queue outside a Foot Locker outlet, and eventually being made to go home by local authorities for not observing social distancing rules, they will still be grateful for your gift. If they love it, they’ll keep it. If they hate it, they’ll simply sell it to someone else. It’s a win-win situation.
So, if you’re looking for some ideas on what sneakers to cheer them up with after that they have missed out on getting the recent Yeezy Boost 350 reissue, look no further. We’ve rounded up all the other new, limited-edition releases to keep an eye on this December. Just make sure to act quick; if you fail to, you can always find a back-up gift here.
