THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR SNEAKERHEADS

 In Features, Shopping Lists

Merry Christmas everyone! Well, almost. The holidays are only a few more weeks away and not everyone has all the gifts for their loved ones together yet. And that includes us. Plus, there might be that special someone in your life who has this (obsessive) thing going with sneakers…

So what do you give a sneakerhead for Christmas? Even if you share the love for kicks, it’s not as easy as you might think.

Obviously, you can give him or her sneakers, but in the end, the possibility of getting the right ones is not that high. Also, sneakers aren’t exactly cheap.

That’s why we came up with our Sneakerhead’s Guide to Christmas: The Best Christmas Gifts for Sneakerheads. Feel free to dive in and rest assured that you can’t really go wrong with any of these choices. All the things we’ve listed are somehow important – or at least useful – to every sneakerhead. Here’s how to rock the bells this holiday season – THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR SNEAKERHEADS:

cleanerSneaker Cleaning Products: It might seem a little odd to give cleaning products to a close person. But in the end many sneakerheads hate spending their money for cleaning products instead of sneakers. Also sneakerheads actually like cleaning their shoes, so that their babys are shiny all the time. You can find a huge range of cleaning stuff HERE and HERE, some brands even have special boxes for Christmas!


foot2-1-von-1A good book.
 Nowadays, there are plenty of decent books covering the entire universe of sneakers and sportswear. It also helps that many sneaker guys like to read. We would, for example, recommend Sneaker Wars, the book about the history and hostility of adidas and Puma. Or Shoe Dog, memoire of Nike founder Phil Knight. Also French, blogger girl Ugly Mely published a book titles Sneakers in 2016 (but unfortunately this one’s in French). Check out these books – some of them are even sneaker related! Also “Shoe Dog”, the memories of Nike founder Phil Knight, are worth a read!

stance-w525d16-blue-collection-tomboy-ho16-slider-1Awesome socks. When we were children, we hated getting socks or other clothes for Christmas. But now, as socks are the things getting closest to our sneakers and can also be very stylish, they offer a great supplement to every pair of kicks! Check out the amazing range of colorful socks HERE , HERE and HERE!

So they need a good bag or backpack that possibly also has some extra space for at least a second pair of sneakers. HHV.de has some great bagpacks in stock, also TGWO can help you out on that matter.

needmore-kalA sneaker calendar. Yes, sneakerheads need calendars. Where else can they mark all those important limited drops and sneaker releases!? Our homies from Need More / Egotrips created a great Air Jordan calendar for 2017. You can cop it at several shops – HERE, HERE or HERE.

subscribeSneakers Magazine subscription. Obviously the best gift on the list (shameless self-promotion). You can always gift a subscription to Sneakers Magazine and be among the first to receive every issue. Filled with great photos, interviews and stories, Sneakers Magazine is published quarterly. It’s a great Christmas present for a fair price, so SUBSCRIBE HERE! And did you know you can also buy older issues in our shop?

img_56491Gift card for a sneaker store. This might be a little workaround, but in case you don’t find anything else, a voucher for one of the best sneaker stores isn’t that bad. At least the presentee will have the chance to buy whatever he or she wants at any time. Sso it’s not that boring after all. Also this would be a great chance to support one of the smaller stores – get a voucher here, here or here!

Nice home accessories.
 As we grow older, we start giving more thought to things like having a nice apartment with cozy and stylish accents. Good news: There are several shops out there that not only sell great sneakers, but also awesome home wear! Take Asphaltgold Club, 43einhalb and Allike for example! Also TINT has some great Stussy stuff in their online store! Last but not least, you might already know the great doormats by Need More, they’re still available at Overkill!
