5 Last-Minute Gifts Ideas For Music Loving Sneakerheads

Rihanna in 2016

Rihanna poses before the Christian Dior 2017 Spring/Summer ready-to-wear collection fashion show on Sept. 30, 2016 in Paris.

The holiday shopping season is winding down to its last days, which usually leaves the procrastinators—or those with hard-to-shop-for recipients on their list. For the shoe collector, here are five sneakers designed in collaboration with music artists that are still available (albeit with expedited shipping).

Puma by Rihanna Men’s Velvet Creeper, $150

RiRi’s creepers are all sold out on Puma’s website, save for this velvet men’s version that’s both festive and on-trend.


Adidas EQT King Push Grayscale, $260


The unrivaled combination of Primeknit and BOOST come together for the #KingPushEQT. Launching worldwide December 3rd.

The third sneaker that from the rapper’s partnership with Adidas sold out on the brand’s site after a Dec. 3rd release date, but Sneakerhead is has it listed for just slightly above the original $200 price tag.


Yeezy Season 3 Men’s Military Boots, $620

Kanye West’s third installation of Yeezys came out in early November, and most of the remaining inventory is with European retailers, like Browns Fashion -- but shipping is just a transatlantic flight away.


Adidas x Pharrell Williams Human Race NMD, $549

Pharrell’s latest collaboration with Adidas was another almost-immediate sell out, but the colorful Hu sneaks are still roaming around on eBay—and, randomly, at Walmart.


Nike Air Jordan 12 OVO Black, $800

Sure, these aren’t available until next year, but true collectors will still appreciate a gift box with a photo and pre-order status of the long-awaited Air Jordans from Drake and his OVO crew.
