The FIFA World Cup kicks off right before Father’s Day weekend, making these Converse kicks inspired by country flags the perfect gift for soccer-loving dads and kids. Pick up shoes featuring the colors of the Brazilian or American flag for yourself or your mini-me to wear while watching the tournament.
Nike Air Jordan 11 Low “Cool Grey”
Where to buy: www.kicksonfire.com
Price: $164.90 USD
The low-top version of the Air Jordan 11 got a full-family run in a sleek gray color scheme earlier this year, and we’re still loving the cool colorway even as the warmer months roll in.
Balenciaga Speed Trainers
Where to buy: www.ssense.com
Price: From $260 USD
Looking to splurge this Father’s Day? Look no further than the Balenicaga Speed Trainer, available in both adult and kid sizes. The sneaker was released in various colors ranging from neon yellow to white, but you can’t go wrong with classic black.
John Geiger Air Force 1 Low “Misplaced Checks”
Where to buy: www.johngeigerco.com
Price: Currently sold out.
For sneaker collectors, John Geiger‘s custom take on the Air Force 1 is a must-have. And the toddler version, which is identical to the adult pair, is almost too cute for words. Naturally the pairs are sold out on John Geiger’s website, so you may have to drop some serious change to get your hands on these.
A Tribe Called Quest x Vans Old Skool
Where to buy: www.vans.com
Price: From $45 USD
One of our favorite collaborations to come out the first half of the year was the A Tribe Called Quest x Vans collection, many of who’s silhouettes are already sold out. But you can still pick up the red, green and black Old Skool for adults and kids. And after you shop, be sure to also watch our unboxing featuring A Tribe Called Quest member Consequence’s son, Caiden.
New Balance 990v4 “North Sea”
Where to buy: www.newbalance.com
Price: From $59.99 USD
For the ultimate dad shoe, look no further than New Balance’s 990 silhouette, which was recently sized down for toddlers. We particularly like the deep blue “North Sea” colorway, which New Balance has made available for both kids and adults.
Sean Wotherspoon x Nike Air Max 1/97
Where to buy: Nike SNKRS App
Price Currently sold out.
No one does father-son sneaker style better than Sean Wotherspoon and his adorable son Nash, so of course the ultimate Father’s Day mini-me sneaker remains his take on the Air Max 1/97 for Nike. Naturally the sneaker is sold out, but you’d make a hypedad very happy if you managed to cop a pair in either adult or toddler sizes.
