With holiday sales approaching it's officially that time of year. So what do you get for the sneakerhead on your list? Whether you're shopping for a friend, family member, or even yourself, here are some great gift options if you're looking to give the gift of sneakers this holiday season. And don't forget to include the perfect laces with a new pair of replacement laces from Lace Lab.
Nike Air More Uptempo '96
With over-the-top branding, the Air More Uptempo '96 is the perfect pair of sneakers for anyone who isn't shy about making their love for Nike clear. This basketball shoe has been around since the 90s and the comfort the cushioning this shoe provides is in the name. This pair takes a white and black colorway to make the Air logo covering the uppers even easier to see.
Red elements in the sole and on the uppers make a red lace swap a clear choice. Gift these sneakers with a Red Rope Laces swap or for a chunkier look to go with that outsized logo add a pair of Red - XI Rope Laces.

With a long history of making beloved running shoes, the New Balance 2002R brings modern technology to a classic sneaker. This is the perfect gift for any runner that also appreciates that signature New Balance look. The shock-absorbing outsole and built-in arch support make this latest sneaker a runner's dream sneaker. While it comes in egg yolk and cobalt, this jade and grey color combination is perfect for the coming holiday season.
Pick up the light grey on the heel and midsole with a Light Grey Shoe Laces swap or take the vintage feel that the off-white midsoles give this pair and bring them up top with a Sail Jordan 1 Replacement Shoelaces swap.
When it comes to the classics you know you can't go wrong with a pair of Air Force 1s. The shoe that has broken down the boundaries between the basketball court and the fashion world, this is the sneaker that almost every sneaker fan on your list would love to have. The Air Force 1 '07 LV8 comes in a combination of sanded gold, hot curry, and wheat, perfect for anyone who loves a playful color combination.
With so many colors at play try adding another with some Lilac Shoe laces in a similar tone for even more variety. If you want to keep the focus on the bright uppers match the midsole with a fresh White Dunk Replacement Shoelaces swap.
