Editor's Pick: The Top 5 Holiday Inspired Sneakers by Tradeblock
Holiday season is right around the corner, which means it’s time to think about those gifts and get into the holiday spirit. For the last couple of years, the sneaker industry has become known for creating different silhouettes to go along with the seasons coming up. So we came up with some of our favorites to help you decide which kicks to wear.
Coming in at number one is the Nike Kobe 6 "Grinch." When you think about holidays and sneaker legend status of the ‘Ugly Christmas Sweaters’...the Nike Kobe 6 'Grinch' come to mind. First laced up by Kobe himself on Christmas Day 2010, it went on to become not only one of the best festive sneakers, but one of the best Kobe releases ever. We currently have over 5692 pair available on Tradeblock.
Perhaps the most famous of all Christmas-themed sneakers, the Conceptsx Nike SB ‘Ugly Sweater’ Dunks are a showy sneaker on-foot. A grumpy snowman wearing a beanie is featured across all three of the highly sought-after colorways. We currently have 21 pair available on Tradeblock.
Christmas time is typically associated with Santa. But around the world there are many Christmas legends, and the creatures that inspire them. Italy has La Befana, the Christmas witch, Iceland has the Yule Cat who lurks in the Arctic countryside eating people who have not received new clothes by Christmas Eve, and Central Europe has Krampus. Krampus is a half-goat, half-demon that Sean Cliver drew from for his 2012 Dunk High. We currently have 4 available on Tradeblock.
In a year when the Nike SB Dunk was hot, Sean Cliver ended 2020 with one of the year’s most anticipated releases. The ‘Holiday Special’ centers around the wintry snow that falls during Christmas, the pale blue suede and white leather uppers are durable. Gold Swooshes add a more festive appeal to the sneaker along with the glittery ice soles. We currently have 1839 pair on Tradeblock.
LeBron is known to always be in the Christmas spirit with his signature line. We had to make a choice, though, and went with the LeBron 10. The frosted red upper puts you in the holiday spirit, while a frosty neon green rounds out the silhouette to end the December holiday. We currently have 21 pair available. on Tradeblock.
