100 Gift Ideas for Sneakerheads

From Fully Personalized Luxe Sneakers to Stylish Space-Ready Shoes

— December 15, 2018 — Fashion
These gift ideas for sneakerheads are drawn from many different and eclectic styles, including those that stem from the functionality or those centered on style aesthetics. Nonetheless, these ideas are comprised of bold options that are an elevating asset to any outfit look. Many of them are made in collaboration with other artists, musicians, and athletes from all over the world.

Louis Vuitton's recent launch of its sneaker customization service serves as the perfect gift for sneakerheads. The luxury fashion house allows consumers to fully customize their pair of 'Run Away' sneaker with the selection of pattern design, materials, and colorway selection. There is also the option to add their own initials through a selection of different processes including hot stamping or printing.

Another unforgettable gift idea featured is the impressive collaboration between Nike and Tom Sachs -- the duo's 'Mars Yard Overshoe' is a design that protects precious footwear from any weather threats in the winter season. It is complete water resistant and is made from nylon-reinforced Dyneema for ultimate lightweight sensibilities.
