This year’s Highsnobiety Gift Guide is all about the presents that’ll make a difference in these new and strange times. From gifts that encourage connection with loved ones, to self-love suggestions you entirely deserve at the end of 2020.
We’ve all got that friend or family member who wears just one label. It’s nothing to mock, though. Die-hard brand fans are the ones that keep the community around the logo living. The Instagram archive accounts, the sneaker release news before PR emails have even hit inboxes, and, of course, the born-out-of-love critique of each and every product by their beloved brand.
Brand stans tend not to come much more fanatical than when following the OG sportswear names. It’s perhaps down to the fact that these labels are some of the longest-standing in streetwear. These fans have a huge back catalog to pour over, dissect, and re-wear, and they do exactly that.
Buying gifts for these people is tough, we know. But if you follow the rule of simplicity and bide by the classics, you can do no wrong. To give you some inspiration on what to buy the Nike stan in your life, we’ve laid out a 10-step shopping list below.
Nike fans are suckers for anything bearing the iconic Swoosh, it’s a fact. As such, they’ll adore a scarf which happens to be absolutely covered in them.
The grey jersey/white Swoosh combo is almost as synonymous with the brand as the Air Force 1 or Jordan sneakers. If they don’t have one yet, do they even stan?
Even in the face of a pandemic, basketball had a major year this year thanks to Netflix’s Michael Jordan documentary and the bubble-based drama of the NBA. If they were one of many who picked up the sport, then the Adapt BB makes for the perfect footwear choice.
Part-cargo part-track pants, these trousers are ideal for the times we live in. The times we live in being times when we’re not sure if we’ll be allowed to leave the house next week or not.
The Fear of God x Nike Holiday capsule brought together two titans recently. The result? A fire nod to ’90s basketball attire.
A classic of the Nike runner lineup, the Pegasus is a favorite among tech sneaker aficionados. Also serves as the little nudge they needed to take up jogging again.
Not only does this jacket have enough space for their phone, wallet, and packed lunch, it’s also made from recycled goods. A fact to proudly announce to the family as they unwrap it.
The mere utterance of GORE-TEX lets them know that you’ve invested, with care, in their protection this winter. Looks great, too.
Say what you want about winter. At least it means that fleece season is back! Not just for your torso, either, but crazy-comfortable fleece for our legs. Sorry, their legs! Forgot we were gifting guiding.
It’s only right that we finish off our guide to Nike holiday gifts for Swoosh stans with one of its ultimate classics. We shouldn’t need to explain, just cop it. If they’ve already got a pair (or ten) it’ll still go down well.
