Vans Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF

It’s hard to go wrong with a pair of Vans, making them the perfect sneaker to gift for under $100. Our pick of the current high-top offering has to be these barbed-wire printed Sk8-His.

Sketchers Stamina

Jump aboard the Sketches wave with the on point and super affordable Stamina. The icon of the grunge movement continues to surprise us with its latest output.

New Balance M801AT

Kept in the vault for 20 years, this new colorway of the hit that was the New Balance 801 gained cult appeal after appearing on the cover of SLAM magazine in 1999, worn by Nets point guard Stephon Marbury.

Nike x Carhartt WIP Air Force 1

Frankly, we’re surprised this collab is even still available at Nike. The iconic silhouette has been elevated with classic workwear materials for the two brands’ first-ever collaboration — an instant grail.

Nike Air Terra Humara 18

Our pick of winter sneakers this year, gift some practicality with this premium offering from Nike, complete with trail-inspired, all conditions-appropriate elements.

OFF-WHITE Vulcanized Sneakers

OFF-WHITE’s sneaker output is more than just its Nike collabs. These white low-tops go with just about everything, elevated for flex appeal with some signature Virgil Abloh tropes.


The classic baseball silhouette gets a spin c/o Japanese streetwear stalwarts NEIGHBORHOOD., complete with detachable zip closures and faux fur lining for winter warmth.

YEEZY Desert Boots

If you’re not here for Kanye West’s ongoing collaborative adidas sneakers and recent restocks, these ankle-high suede desert boots are the way to go for winter.

Asics x Kiko Kostadinov Gel Delva

Bulgarian designer Kiko Kostadinov’s ASICS collaborations have been one of the great gifts of 2018. The latest to drop is the perfect seasonal shoe, complete with unique overlays in a goes-with-everything black colorway.

Maison Margiela Fusion

We have so much time for this ultra-polarizing Frankenstein’s monster of the high fashion sneaker market. Honor its deconstructed aesthetics with a makeshift AF gift wrap.
