It’s beginning to look a lot like sneaker Christmas. Holiday-themed shoes have become the norm each year, with many brands getting in on the fun to deliver their own take on the festive themes.
So far this year, Holiday themed basketball shoes are getting the most attention from brands, although we could still see some runners, trainers, or cleats pop up closer to the 25th. Asics recently unveiled a three-pack of retro runners with Santa, Elf, and Reindeer inspirations, although the dated technologies aren’t recommended for serious levels of running. Meanwhile, there’s a wide variety of basketball kicks, both retro and current styles, which will get the job done on the hardwood.
