What do you get someone who has everything? That is a question you might as well ask yourself when trying to buy something for a diehard sneakerhead because chances are, they probably either already have all the sneakers they want, want something that hasn’t dropped yet, or what’s left on their list of grails takes up the entirety of your holiday gift budget (and then some).
So if you’re still dead-set on getting something for that sneakerhead friend or family member of yours, we’ve picked out the ten best sneakers available at every price point at Stadium Goods. Entries include some recently-released collaborations, such as the “Cactus Jack” Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1s, drops that are still coming up (such as the adidas YEEZY Boost 380 “Alien”) or highlights from earlier in the year, such as the Nike SB “LA to Chicago” Air Jordan 1.
Our selection spans hyped collaborations to underrated colorways or models and includes something for every price point. Note, though, that Stadium Goods is a secondary market platform, and some sneakers will not be available in a full-size run.
The best sneakers available at Stadium Goods right now:
Off-White™ x Nike Zoom Vapor Street
Virgil Abloh and Nike’s now two-year-old collaboration continues to go from strength to strength. The Vapor Street was the second installment of a running-themed track and field collection, with the designer lending his signature deconstructed aesthetic to an already great design.
Nike Kyrie 5 “Spongebob”
The Spongebob-themed Nike Kyrie 5 pack was one of the most fun releases of the year, mixing a bit of nostalgia with really clever design details. The yellow Spongebob colorway is, therefore, a must-cop for anyone, whether you play basketball or not.
adidas YEEZY 500 “Stone”
The YEEZY 500 “Stone” brought new materials to one of Kanye West’s best silhouettes with adidas. The military boot-inspired design and the bulbous midsole were further complemented by the neoprene base layer that gave the shoe an even chunkier aesthetic.
Nike SB Air Jordan 1 “LA to Chicago”
We at Highsnobiety love it when Nike SB and Jordan Brand put their collective genius together to pump out skate-ready versions of Michael Jordan’s signature line. Although there were a lot of AJ1 releases this year, the LA to Chicago colorway stands out as one of the best.
adidas Originals YEEZY Boost 700 V2 “Hospital Blue”
The YEEZY Boost 700 V2 is one part chunky and one part sleek, as a streamlined upper drops into a bulky Boost tooling unit. The juxtaposition gives it an interesting look, while the Hospital Blue colorway is one of the most wearable pieces yet.
sacai x Nike LDWaffle
The most hyped sneaker drop hands down in 2019. A lot of L’s were handed out, as the sneaker restocked a couple of times and was on the feet of every celebrity imaginable. If the price is right, it’s definitely worth copping.
Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 990v2
Although the New Balance 990v5 was released this year, Teddy Santis and the crew over at Aimé Leon Dore decided to bring back the v2 for their latest two-sneaker collaboration with the New England sportswear brand. A good choice, if you ask us.
PEACEMINUSONE x Nike Air Force 1
G-Dragon’s PEACEMINUSONE label connected with Nike on an Air Force 1 that features a painted upper layer that cracks and deconstructs as you wear it. This shoe is made to be worn, so stop thinking about it and buy a pair!
adidas Originals YEEZY Boost 380 “Alien”
This YEEZY isn’t even out yet, dropping officially at very limited retailers on December 12. If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of signing up for raffles or standing in line, buy a pair early for that guaranteed W.
Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1 “Cactus Jack”
Travis Scott and Nike dominated 2019 and look set to keep up their strong partnership well into 2020. One of the most underrated releases to come from the duo was the “Cactus Jack” Air Force 1, with lots of references to Scott’s Texan heritage.
