Clothes are tough to give as holiday presents. Just think of the ugly sweaters you’ve received, or the keyboard-print ties, or the…the socks. All the socks. Sneakers, on the other hand, are a damn-near perfect gift, and for a few reasons. For one, unlike other kinds of clothing, a person’s sneaker size doesn’t change just because they dropped some weight or got swole this year. And on a more emotional level, sneakers were just born to be gifts. Hell, they even come in their own box with tissue paper inside. That’s why throughout the years, brand new Air Jordans, Yeezys, and hot-off-the-resale-market sneaker styles have been so popular under Christmas trees. And with the sneaker world wilder than it’s ever been, 2017 is shaping up to be one of the best holiday seasons ever for sneakerheads and casual fans alike. Here, we break down the best kicks to buy for every guy in your life.
