Sneaker Freaker Presents: A Kicksmas Gift Guide
We’re coming into the depths of the month that is single-handedly responsible for empty wallets and food comas. Adding to the tension of these two afflictions, you’ve probably got no idea what presents to get, or who to get them for.
That’s where we come in, your friendly sneaker enthusiasts, with a Sneaker-themed gift guide that’ll help you through the holidays.
So, sit back, get the credit card details ready, and take a look down below.
What to Get Dad
We know our fathers may rock some dead trainers, beat to death from hectic barbecuing and hard days mowing the lawn. So, why not get him an upgrade (something he can use to flex on Mike-next-door) while still keeping it practical. He already appreciates the comfort and quality of New Balance, so why not some 991s! They're Dad enough so he won't look out of place, yet steezy enough that he'll be drippin' at the next neighbourhood watch meeting.
What to Get Mum
She’s cleaned up after you for years, now’s the time to show her how much it all meant to you. We know if you had the cash to splash you would douse that woman in Balenciaga and place her feet in that luxury Louis, but we're not all millionaires. So, why not a fresh pair of Nike Air Max 270 Reacts, in the 'Mystic Pink' colourway.
It'll be sure to break necks while she's doing the next grocery shop.
What to Get Your Sibling
You may not see eye-to-eye all the time, but you still think they deserve something for Christmas (as small as it may be). What about the recent collaboration between UNDERCOVER and Nike? A hat to provide them with the same level of shade you throw their way on the regular.
What to Get Grandpa
Your Grandpa is from a completely different time. It's a fairly safe bet to say he wasn't spending hundreds of dollars on sneakers and, when he does rock a pair of kicks, it's for support not for the looks. So why not get gramps something he can stunt in, while wearing his best slacks. The Adrian Snaffle Loafer by Dr Martens, perhaps?
What to Get Grandma
Grandma doesn't care about kicks, or how many you got. She does have expensive taste though, so show her how much she means to you by spoiling the other little munchkin in her life (her dog). SSENSE have recently started dabbling in dog garments, so pop down and get her a Burberry dog collar.
What to Get Your Aunt
Your Aunt Miranda, a diehard Skechers fan, is coming to Christmas at your place. Just hearing her name sends shivers down your spine. So why not cop her something that’ll help take care of her beloved supportive shoe collection. She’s never heard of Crep Protect or Jason Markk, so get her that good good, Skechers premium care kit.
What to Get Your Best Friend
Skimping out on your homies is a big Christmas no-no. Treat them to something nice, something that shows them how much they really mean to you. The Grenson Cedar shoe tree is the perfect gift, and flowers all year round – so your bestie has a constant reminder of you in their house.
