Getting a useful, on-trend gift for your sneakerhead son, niece, nephew or friend will make their day, but that’s easier said than done. To help find the perfect hypebeast-approved gift at the right price we rounded up these products, accessories, and current must-have shoes that all sneakerheads will love.
1. Stance Socks
Every sneakerhead knows that fresh socks compliment fresh kicks. As sneaker culture has exploded, Stance has become the go-to sock brand. Their unique colorways and premium feel makes them a fun, easy gift even for non-sneakerheads.
2. Sneakers: The Trump Card Game
A sneakerhead’s favorite activity (besides the obvious) is debating and comparing kicks with fellow sneakerheads. Sneakers: The Trump Card Game facilitates some friendly, structured arguing about which classic sneaker is king and provides hours of fun.
3. Misslo Shoe Travel Bags
Is the sneakerhead on your list also a jetsetter? If they are we recommend these shoe travel bags that keep their prized kicks clean and safe in their luggage.
4. Jason Markk Shoe Cleaner
Dirty sneakers are an age-old sneakerhead problem because no matter how hard you try to avoid it, shoes get dirty. Dozens of shoe cleaning kits have tried to fix the problem, but sneakerheads concur that Jason Markk is the best.
5. SONGMICS Storage Cube Organizer
Sneakerheads often find themselves lacking the proper storage for their kicks, making a simple cubby structure like this very useful. This one is easy to put anywhere, features six compartments, and costs just $25.
6. Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture
Out of the Box showcases and discusses sneakers from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. As far as gifting books goes, this is hard to beat.
7. Converse One Star Skate
If you really want to make a sneakerhead’s day, get them a trendy new pair of kicks. The Converse One Star, a much-hyped classic that just got re-released, is a great option.
8. Adidas Originals NMD
Another on-trend sneaker to gift this year is the Adidas NMD. Other than the Yeezy it’s the biggest sneaker of the year, so any sneakerhead would be happy to unwrap them (just make sure they don’t already own a pair).
