95 Gift Ideas for the Basketball Fan

From Modern Sporty Apparel to Athlete Heritage-Honoring Shoes

— December 22, 2020 — Lifestyle
These gift ideas for the basketball fan will bring a sense of excitement and enthusiasm to loved ones. This year, the sports industry was compromised due to the global pandemic and fans searched to enjoy the sport in other ways. One of the notable gifting ideas this year is the special Air Jordan 34s made in collaboration with athlete Rui Hachimura.

Working with the sportswear label, the shoes celebrate the Japanese roots of Hachimura on one foot and his African roots of Benin on the other foot. Another great idea for the basketball fan this holiday is a piece from the Converse Basketball Holiday 2020 collection full of energetic and contemporary designs including stark footwear.
