Adidas Superstar

Adidas Superstar

Adidas

Originally released in 1969, the Adidas Superstar is a classic sneaker. Designed as a premium basketball sneaker that dominated the courts in the 70s, it was first recognized for its fashionable style in the 80s. Still to this day, the iconic shell-toe can be found on the feet of many. Literally anybody you give these to as a gift will look good in them.

Adidas Ultra Boost

Since its debut in 2015, the Adidas Ultra Boost has easily become one of the most popular sneakers of all time. The sneakers use a Primeknit upper, a plastic cage, and a full-length Boost midsole. The combination of materials make for lightweight sneakers, while Boost provides the highest energy return of any running sneaker.

If you're shopping for a runner or someone in need of comfortable sneakers, this is the best sneaker to buy.

Allbirds Wool Runners

If sustainability is important to the person you're shopping for, then the Allbirds Wool Runners are the perfect sneakers for them. Created by New Zealand native Tim Brown and San Francisco-based engineer and renewables expert Joey Zwillinger, the Wool Runners are made of merino wool. The wool actually has many natural properties that make for amazing sneakers. They're lightweight and breathable, cool in the heat, warm in the cold, and for those who like to go sockless, they're machine-washable and odor-resistant, too.

Greats Royale Vintage

Nordstrom

If you're shopping for someone who desires luxury-grade quality and classic footwear styling, Greats is one of the best places to get a sneaker gift. The startup was founded in 2014 as a premium, yet affordable alternative to high-end designers who create minimal sneakers. The Royale Vintage, in particular, uses styling cues reminiscent of low-top basketball sneakers of the 70s. They feature a super soft white leather upper, vegetable tanned leather sock liners and insoles, and suede accents available in navy, red, and black on the heel. The rubber outsoles come in a off-white color, mimicking the yellowing that occurs on vintage sneakers.
