Sneakers make for great gifts all year long, but the holiday season is the best time to lace someone special with a new pair. Whether you're shopping for a true sneakerhead or are simply looking for gift ideas, you can't go wrong with these picks.

From classics that never go out of style and modern runners to minimal designs, there's a sneaker for everyone at Red Rat.

So, don’t stress, here are our top 5 sneaker picks that are guaranteed to be a hit under the Christmas tree.

5. Converse Chucks Taylor All Star

As a sneaker that's been around since the 1920s, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star low- and high-tops are some of the most popular sneakers of all time. Their super simple designs feature a canvas upper with two perforations for breathability, a rubber toe, and a rubber sole. Lacing them up for a game of basketball like Chuck did might not be the best idea today, but the shoe's long-lasting style makes it a timeless gift.

4. Puma Cali Bold – Womens

Black and white and bold all over. The PUMA Cali Bold plays with dimensions and contrast, with a kick-ass platform and oversized PUMA branding. PUMA stripped down shoes from their archives and rebuilt them to create future icons – grounded in history and evolved for a new world.

3. Vans Old Skool

It’s simple: Van’s Old Skool’s classic style is summer’s most democratic shoe. Everyone can wear it—and so, they do. There aren’t many other shoes, that both Bella Hadid and your cool uncle can pull off with equal poise. The secret is in the sneaker’s simple yet instantly recognizable design: a low-top shoe with traditional laces, done in suede and canvas with clean white outsoles. Nothing super flashy, making it the perfect shoe to thrown on as your run out the house, no matter where the day takes you.
