The life of a committed sneakerhead can get quite lonely at times. Hours spent in cold IRL queues, online queues, waking up early only to catch a huge L on a sneaker they’ve been eyeing for months, the list goes on. Sneaker fanatics are so accustomed to the throes of disappointment that sometimes they can forget the good times.

If you are all too familiar with the L-littered life of a sneakerhead through your other half or a friend, then consider this your call to action: now is your chance to bless them with the biggest W of the year.

Whether it’s a trend-driven smash, left-field silhouette, or a pair of classics, we’ve put together a list of some of the best New Balance gifts to give a sneakerhead for the holidays.
