Where the hell did 2018 go? Just like that, there’s only three weeks left until Christmas, and while it’s important to binge watch Home Alone and get your hearty helping of mince pies, it’s also important to get your loved ones the perfect present. That being said, what do you get the sneakerhead who has everything already? Worry not, as The Sole Supplier is here to help!
While getting them a pair of fresh new creps is a great idea (we’ll list a few must cops down below), we’re also going to showcase a few not-so-obvious items that they might like! If you’re the one who’s stuck on what to get, show your loved ones this list to give them some inspo during this stressful season!
No winter fit is complete without a The North Face 1996 Retro Nuptse Jacket ‘Red’. Arguably the Californian brand’s most iconic outerwear piece, this retro-friendly jacket rocks the same shiny fabric and oversized baffles as the original. Boasting a standard fit boxy silhouette, the Nuptse is filled with RDS goose down for the ultimate cozy vibes this season. £219.99 via Footasylum
Dubbed the Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2.0 ‘Safari’, these lightweight sneakers are crafted from Flyknit, and are painted in a black and white shade. A direct translation of Tinker Hatfield’s 1987 classic runner, light grey accents feature throughout the silhouette, making its way to the Swoosh and tongue, while the full length Air VaporMax midsole is coloured in a glossy orange hue. £ 169.99 via Foot Locker UK
First introduced at Virgil Abloh’s inaugural Off-White runway show back in 2016, the Off-White Industrial Belt ‘Yellow’ is one of the best gifts you can give and receive this Christmas. Compared to a lot of Off-White’s pieces, the belt is relatively understated, with an extra long length, featuring black embroidery with the label’s motifs and red stitching running down the middle. £145 via Selfridges
Marking a new chapter in its iconic history, the Apple iPhone X 64GB ‘Space Grey’ is a must cop for the person who has it all. Featuring a sleek, durable glass casing edged in surgical-grade stainless steel, it packs innovative features into its slim design. Powered by an A11 bionic chip, it’s fitted with a TrueDepth camera for capturing Portrait selfies and FaceID that lets you unlock and use Apple Pay with just a glance. £999 via Selfridges
Perfectly themed for the festive season, the adidas Ultra Boost Mid ‘Confetti’ is crafted from Primeknit and is painted in an ultra clean grey hue. Yellow accents feature throughout for a pop of contrast on an otherwise muted palette, and a popping confetti-style Continental outsole sits down below for extra durability. This sneaker also features a full length Boost midsole, promising endless comfort and a smoother stride. £169.99 via Foot Locker UK
Sneakers aren’t the only way you can get Boosted this season – take a look at the Boosted Board ‘Stealth’! Built from the ground up, the deck is re-imagined to give a more refined feel, keeping the flex, vibration absorption, and deep carving capabilities that fans have come to love. The ultimate in electric skateboard tech and performance, zip around the city like Casey Neistat this holiday season! £1,499 via Selfridges
You can’t go wrong with a minimal black hoodie, that’s why we recommend the Nike Box Logo Hoodie ‘Black’. Simple yet striking and stealthy, this genuine lifestyle classic fits true to size and is crafted from soft cotton. An adjustable drawstring hood and front kangaroo pocket makes this piece as versatile as it gets. An orange box logo adorns the chest for a dash of contrast. £49.99 via Footasylum
Every winter rotation needs a pair of adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 ‘Triple Black’. Merging next-level performance with street-ready style, these stealthy sneakers are built with a breathable Primeknit upper, whilst a TPU midfoot cage brings a locked-down fit. Whether you’re running the track or walking the autumn streets, these trainers are equipped with a Boost midsole, which keeps the ride energised and cushioned. £150 via Offspring
Inject a pop of colour into their collection with the Nike Air Max 97 ‘Blue Hero’. Crafted from a mix of bright blue leather and nylon, this sneaker is built to last. Elsewhere, hits of black and red branding can be found, while an Air Max strip is featured on the heel and throughout the lacing system. Finishing off the look is a white midsole, icy blue Air bubble unit, and a white and blue outsole. £149.99 via Footasylum
Established in 2004, Stockholm-based label Sandqvist is world-renowned for its well-designed and durable accessories. Case in point: the resilient Sandqvist Hege Backpack ‘Black’. Trimmed with smooth leather and showcasing the brand logo in foil letters, it boasts a spacious interior fitted with a laptop sleeve and an array of pockets, making it perfect for city streets and country terrain. £200 via Selfridges
Meet the GoPro HERO7 ‘Black’ – the most advanced action cam currently on the market. With HyperSmooth stabilisation, you’ll get gimbal-like video – without the gimbal. HERO7 shoots stunning 4K video and 12 MP photos and you can control your HERO7 hands-free with voice commands. For the sneakerhead who dreams of taking their videos to the next level. £379.99 via Selfridges
Unlike any Nomad before it, the adidas Originals NMD R1 ‘Green Marble’ features a Primeknit upper which boasts a neat green marble motif throughout. Black accents make their way onto the lacing system and around the heel, while white EVA plugs provide the marble-ous with some much needed contrast. To round it all off, this NMD sits atop a full length Boost midsole for additional comfort and a smoother stride. £160 via Offspring
