This Holiday season ushers in a bevy of seasonally themed goodies in the Active world. From celeb filled videos to an angry monster, it spans all boundaries of our industry. We decided to round up a few of our favorites on the scene…
The air is buzzing with rumors of a new monster in town by the name of Krampus. Nike Skateboarding released a brand new sinister character straight from the depths of artist Sean Cliver’s mind. The horned beast with a terrifying tongue is caught on everything from T-shirts to sneakers this season.
On a more classic note, New Balance introduces a collaboration with DJ Mars and famous sneaker hub Walter’s on special edition NB 574s. Available exclusively at the retailer the collection features color-ups in traditional red, green, white and black in rich suede.
Rounding out our list is the tale of Ebenezer Snoop. Through a Facebook video series, adidas has called upon brand ambassador Snoop Dogg for a section of celebrity-studded storytelling, a test to see if “the Ebenezer is you” (which we highly recommend doing, it’s hilarious!) and then un-scrooge yourself one click at a time.
From our team here at Stylesight, we hope you have a great Holiday season… keep it Active!
