10 Things From Champs Sports That Should Be on Everyone’s Wish List

  • Nike Air Max 2015
    1. Nike Air Max 2015

    An engineered mesh upper with Hyperfuse and Dynamic Flywire is cool enough. So is full-length Max Air. But this shoe is a must-cop because it’s more than just something you can wear to the gym. It’s more than just cool colorways. It’s something you can wear out to any occasion and look good. Stay fresh this holiday season with a sneaker that improved more than any other over the course of one year.

  • adidas Flux
    2. adidas Flux

    A number of new colorways and designs just dropped at Champs Sports, furthering emphasizing the fact that this might be the top sneaker to have released all year. The adidas Flux is a stripped-down descendent of the ZX 8000 runner, and in many ways it surpasses its iconic father. The one-piece mesh upper may not be super suitable for the winter, but you’re copping now to make sure you have it for the rest of the year.

  • adidas NBA Revolution Swingman Jersey
    3. adidas NBA Revolution Swingman Jersey

    The season is being kicked into high gear now that everyone is back on the court — from Derrick Rose to Russell Westbrook to Kevin Durant. Step up your game with a new jersey. Perhaps none are hotter than LeBron James right now, considering he went home to the Cavs this summer. The stitched-down, screenprinted twill and the ClimaCool mesh takes this to another level.

  • 4. adidas NBA Tip-Off Hoodie

    Have a favorite team and need some new gear? If you do, you should probably look into the new hoodies from adidas, the NBA Tip-Off Hoodie. Featuring printed team graphics on the chest and side pockets, all of the different cities have team-specific colorways — the Blazers come in red; the Knicks in blue, for example — and are made of polyester fleece. Going to be home from school and looking to hit the gym every day? This should be your go-to. If not…

  • 5. Jordan Jumpman Flight hoodie

    …It might be time to start looking into this new hoodie from the Jordan Brand. The screen-printed Jumpman branding will let everyone know who’s team you’re REALLY on. (Come on, we all know you’re down with the Jordan squad.) And with so many Jordan releases coming out this month, this hoodie will go well with your next purchase.

  • Nike Tech Fleece Windrunner
    6. Nike Tech Fleece Windrunner

    Available in just about every color, the Nike Tech Fleece Windrunner is the perfect do-everything jacket to wear this holiday season. When you don’t feel like dressing up all the way, and when you can’t go somewhere rocking a hoodie, this is the perfect in-between. You must know by now how much people — and especially sneakerheads — are feeling Nike’s Tech Fleece lately. A unique thermal construction, as well as a double-faced layer of fabric, makes this joint both warm and comfortable.

  • Nike Roshe Run
    7. Nike Roshe Run

    One of the standouts of 2014 is once again the Roshe Run. A versatile shoe that can let people dress up or dress down depending on the situation, this silhouette was stripped down to the bare essentials and when it first debuted in 2012 it became a trendsetter. You won’t be ahead of the game now by rocking a pair but at least you’ll be hip to the current sneaker culture, where everything is about stripped down runners and trainers. And with so many colorways available, there’s something for everyone.

  • Timberland boots
    8. Timberland boots

    The new camo Timbs are essentials this year, considering I bet most of you don’t have camouflage Timberlands. But if for some reason you don’t know how to pull off camo — see here for some help — there’s always the traditional boots, the tan ones that can go with anything. The winter will be tough…but not for those who have these in their shoe rotation.

  • Nike Tech Fleece
    9. Fleece pants

    There are so many dope pants available right now. You can grab a pair of the Nike Tech Fleece if you want, or go with a different route and cop some Jordan Varsity sweatpants or the classic adidas Originals tracksuit. Whether you’re cuffing or not, they all have something in common for the winter: They’ll look good with your kicks and keep you warm at the same time.

  • New Era NFL Sport Knit
    10. NFL New Era Knit

    This last one is obvious. It’s the winter. It’s cold outside. In some places it’s frigid. You’ll need to rock some headgear to stay dry and warm. New Era’s knit series at Champs Sports is the perfect remedy.

My sisters always make fun of me for having big holiday wish lists, like I expect to get everything. Well, you gotta have options, right? If you miss out on the “Infrared” Air Jordan VI, go for the adidas D Rose 5 Boost. If you aren’t able to cop some Nike Tech Fleece, go for the adidas Originals tracksuit. It’s about variety and making the most of what you can handle. We’re all prisoners of Black Friday and this is the only way to harness it.

If you are interested in upgrading your wardrobe but keep forgetting to go out shopping, we’re here to narrow down the list for you and give you some pointers about what you can ask for this year. These are 10 Things From Champs Sports That Should Be on Everyone’s Wish List.

The holidays are a big time for sneakerheads around the country. Campouts are consistently happening. Sneaker releases are coming fast and furious. All-black Air Jordans? They’re here. The galaxy-themed adidas Flux? Get laced. There are probably even shoes that you know nothing about that you’ll be tempted to scoop up. Then there are the pro sports. The NFL is hitting the stretch run and the NBA is off and running for, really, the first time.

We’re down to the last week before the big day, too, so if you haven’t yet put together a wish list — whether for family and friends or even just for yourself — we’re here to help. You can’t stop with the sneakers. You can’t stop with the hoodies. You have to complete the full outfit. Take a look.
