Santa's going to get his Claus into these.
When it comes to festive-themed footwear, Nike just never disappoints. Over the years the Beaverton-based sportswear company have curated some of the best Christmas sneakers of all time, and we think that the freshly-revealed Nike Air Force 1 High Utility 2.0 "Christmas" is up there amongst the greats. Taking on the Air Force 1's ultra rugged cousin, we really wouldn't be too surprised if Santa decided to switch out his classic leather boots for a pair of these this year.
Boasting a premium construction that's sure to last for many X-mases to come, this Air Force 1 High works on top of a sail suede base and is overlaid by beige leather panels from the toebox all the way to the ankle. A fleecy white Swoosh shoots through the sidewalls as a nod to Father Christmas' beard, and around the ankle you'll find a buckle system that's giving us some serious utilitarian vibes. The inside of these Forces are painted in a fiery red hue, and it connects with a fluffy bauble around the heel as a homage to Jolly Old St. Nicholas' hat. Luckily, you can actually remove this and rock these without it. To round it all off, the Air midsole underfoot is housed within a chunky gum rubber unit with subtle speckling, making it look like you've just stepped in from a snowy morning.
Releasing in December 2022, the Nike Air Force 1 High Utility 2.0 Christmas is the ultimate Holiday-themed sneaker. Set to be available in men's sizes at Nike, the SNKRS app, and select retailers worldwide, a retail price has yet TBA.
