From Summery Pool-Inspired Shoes to Kendrick Lamar's Designs

 - Dec 17, 2016
Included in this cluster of gifts for the sneakerhead, a vast variety of footwear is featured -- with styles drawing from both vintage and futuristic motifs.

Taking a break from Snapchat, DJ Khaled designed his own Air Jordan 16s. Meanwhile, Drake put a minimalist OVO-branded spin on the Air Jordan 6 lows. Rihanna also dropped a few new designs with Puma, giving fans of the Creeper some more color and material options. 2016 also saw a comeback of Velcro and glow-in-the-dark styles.

As with sportswear, footwear took a step back to the 1990s -- with many classic models returning in a new way. One such example in this list of gifts for the sneakerhead includes Nike's Godzilla-inspired colorway for the Air Max CB 34. Also prominent is the Vans and Disney collaboration, which saw Toy Story's lovable characters adapted to skate shoes.
