For some, nothing says Christmas quite like an ugly jumper or an itchy hat. For others, the perfect pair of Christmassy trainers is all they need to get into the festive spirit. To get you in the Christmas mood, we’ve rounded up all the best festive sneakers that deserve a place in your December rotation – but which pair will you put under the tree?
Dressed in the instantly recognisable red and green hue of Christmas, the Nike Air Force 1 High Christmas is a must-have style for the big day. Patterned fabric panels sit on the toe box and sidewalls, inspired by the season’s “ugly sweater” tradition, while the inside is lined with faux fur for an extra cosy fit. Designed to look right at home under the Christmas tree, rumour has it that this is the pair of sneakers Santa wears in the workshop.
Landing in 2020 as part of Nike’s Christmas pack, the Nike Air Max 90 Christmas is what festive dreams are made of. Dressed in the same green-and-red colourway as the Air Force 1, this merry pair has that faux fur lining for extra comfort points. The perfect gift to you, from you, these AM90s will definitely catch eyes on the big day.
The clue’s in the name with this one. Inspired by the ugly sweaters we all love to wear around the festive season, the Jordan 1 Mid Ugly Christmas Sweater is crafted from Christmassy printed fabric with red overlays and green Jordan branding. Designed to perfectly match your favourite itchy jumper, this pair will see you through Christmas day in style.
A slightly more pared-back offering, the Blazer Mid Christmas comes dressed in the ‘Pine Green’ hue Nike is famed for, with a bright red Swoosh on the sidewalls for an extra touch of festive cheer. Of course, like the AF1 and AM90 from the 2020 Christmas pack, this Blazer boasts faux fur inserts for extra cosiness.
A snowy pair that’ll see you through the festive season and well into the spring, the Air VaporMax White Christmas comes dressed in a crisp white hue with Swoosh branding to match. Nike’s most intricately designed sneaker to date, the sole’s mould is made up of over 39,000 components. Akin to “walking on Air”, the VaporMax is lightweight, incredibly responsive and one of the brand’s most flexible silhouettes, and this triple white colourway is just what your winter collection needs.
