Well, it’s almost that time of the year again – Home Alone playing non-stop on TV (whether you like it or not), and Christmas parties in full swing. While it’s pretty important to get your hearty helping of mince pies and fill out your wishlist with things you didn’t even know you needed, picking out an outfit for the big day is equally as important, and without a doubt, one of the most overlooked things is sneakers.
Just because your outfit is the focal point, it doesn’t mean you should forget about what’s on your feet! With that said, we’ve compiled a list of 25 festive sneakers you can cop right now to rock around the Christmas tree!
To kick things off, we have the Nike Air Max 97 ‘Jacket Pack’. Dressed in a tastefully festive colour combination of ‘Team Red’ and ‘Midnight Spruce’, a plaid pattern serves as the first layer and is followed by forest green. As you continue to move towards its ankle entry, the upper is completed by burgundy and yellow plaid on the tongue, reminiscent of wrapping paper and Christmas pyjamas.
The Nike Air Max 95 ‘String Orange’ transitions from white on the upper to black on the midsole, with eye catching ‘Total Orange’ accents featuring throughout, kind of like fairy lights on a Christmas tree. Painted in a tastefully earthy hue, a vibrant Air unit features on the midsole, promising additional comfort and a smoother stride during the snowy Christmas months.
First released in 2015, the adidas Ultra Boost 1.0 ‘Multicolor’ is one of the best UB colourways to release. Dressed in a Primeknit upper, the runner is painted in a snow white white colour scheme for a unique yet understated vibe. Around the back, a complementary heel cup is present, and a full length Boost midsole sits underfoot for endless comfort. The iconic multicolour knit adorns the toe box for a Christmas sweater-like vibe.
Generating a solid amount of hype over the past few weeks, the Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘Olive Canvas’ is dressed in festive green leather and features large, striking branded hits on the lateral and medial quarter panels. Utilising a mix of large Nike lettering and a blown-up repeating text graphic, this AJ1 is a certified attention grabber during your Christmas parties.
A lesson in unique sneaker styling, the Nike Air VaporMax Plus ‘Bright Crimson’ is the ultimate hybrid shoe. One of the hottest sneakers you can rock over the holidays, the sneaker features a bold red neoprene upper with contrasting textures throughout. Eye catching black branding adorns the tongue and heel, while a full length Air VaporMax bubble sole unit sits below.
Bring a bit of bling to your collection this Christmas with the Nike Air VaporMax 97 ‘Gold Bullet’. The perfect fusion between the Air Max 97 and the Swoosh’s current flagship, the Air VaporMax, this shoe is crafted from a mix of leather and mesh, all painted in a brilliant gold palette. A dash of red appears throughout for festive cheer, and a clear Air unit sits down below for unbeatable comfort.
Featuring a bold colour scheme, the Nike Air VaporMax Utility ‘Team Red’ features a mid-cut silhouette that is designed to tackle the snowy Christmas months.

A must cop this season, the Nike Air Force 1 Utility ‘Sequoia’ features a leather and textile construction with a nylon strap and a magnetic buckle closure for an easy on and off sit. An extended tongue, huge heel-pull, as well as oversized Swoosh branding, add a unique look to the silhouette. Down below, gum rubber graces the midsole, meaning these will stand the test of time.
Two iconic sneakers join in harmony for the Nike Air Max 97/BW ‘Metallic Gold’. Painted in a rich gold hue, swathes of black and red accents feature throughout for extra festive cheer. 3M reflective detailing also makes it presence known across the upper, glistening in the night like fairy lights on a Christmas tree.

Painted in a dark green hue, lighter shades of green adorn the lacing system as well as the cupsole for a bit of subtle contrast.
As clean as it gets, the adidas Originals Yung-1 ‘Cloud White’ is doused in a pristine snow white hue, and is fashioned from a premium combination of breathable mesh and luxe suede. Taking design cues from the iconic adidas Falcon Dorf, a plush foam midsole will make it feel like you’re walking on clouds. To complete the design, tonal white laces tie the shoe up like a present under the Christmas tree just waiting to be opened.
Paying homage to collaborations from the late Alexander McQueen, more specifically the PUMA McQ Tech Runner Lo, the PUMA Thunder Spectra ‘Burgundy’ fuses sports and fashion to create a sneaker that is unlike anything else currently on the market.
