You’ve worn sweaters adorned with tinsel and real ornaments, knits featuring Hanukkah-celebrating llamas and break-dancing Santas, even cardigans that light up and play the tune of your favorite Christmas carol. And yet you always felt that something was missing. Well, this year you might finally feel complete thanks to these hilariously wonderful ugly holiday sweater sneakers from Brooks.
We hope you’re ready to slay sleigh all day because these festive kicks are more fun than opening a toy that has batteries included. Red reindeer prance through an evergreen knit and around lines of white pine trees. The sock liner is adorned with drifting snowflakes, the outsole has green rubber treads speckled with red glitter, and the whole over-the-top shoe is laced together with red and white candy cane striped laces and a pair of real (and removable) red and green bells at your toes. In other words, they are very festive and very extra.
The sweater-inspired style isn’t just for fun either, it’s a true functional running shoe (for $150 a pair we’d certainly hope so). You know, in case you have to run a holiday-themed race this year.
Though they’re almost entirely sold out on the Brooks website, most sizes are still available in both womens and mens on Zappos. Now excuse us as we go plan an ugly sneaker party.
