If you’re excited to wear your ugly holiday sweater but not quite sure what to wear with it, the folks at Brooks Sports might just have the perfect accessory to complete your look. For almost 100 years, Brooks Sports has made footwear for all different activities but now the company has released a special edition of its Levitate 2 shoe, which just so happens to feature an ugly sweater colorway.
We’re going to be a little honest here, we’re tired of the ugly holiday sweater, the whole ugly holiday sweater trend – and we know just the reason. It used to be a fun little niche thing, where people semi-unintentionally wore ugly sweaters to parties, but it’s grown to ugly sweater specific parties, with tons of manufacturers now making ugly sweaters, using every franchise imaginable from the world of sports and entertainment. Having said that, Brooks has found a way to reinvigorate a little bit of life into this stale idea, creating shoes that go along with it – that’s new and pretty inventive and we applaud them.
The shoes are essentially the sneaker version of the ugly sweater, featuring a red, white and green color scheme, Christmas trees and reindeer, two jingle bells and candy cane inspired shoelaces. These things are perfect for any party, or 12-mile run through your favorite woods. And these aren’t just another fun-looking shoe. No, the Levitate 2 offers a ton of arch support for those looking to work off all of those holiday cookies they’ve consumed this December. Though at $150, that price is a little bit much for this time of the year – but that might just be worth it to be the talk of wherever your feet take you. They’re available, through Brooks’ website, in both men’s and women’s sizes.
Someone needs to let Santa know about these shoes because, from the looks of it, they seem both festive and practical, perfect for a long day of traveling around the globe.
