With the holidays just around the corner, it's important to have a cool pair that matches your outfit perfectly. Snipes offers a great selection of Air Force 1 sneakers for the whole family. To get you started, we've listed our favourite picks that you could wear during the holidays.
It's time to prepare for Christmas. Of course, there is no Christmas without Father Christmas, but where does Santa Claus actually come from? As we are used to from the stories, Father Christmas comes from the North Pole. But the inspiration for this figure comes from Saint Nicholas.
Nicholas was known, among other things, for giving gifts. He did this anonymously. At night, for example, he put coins in the shoes of the poor that were left on the doorstep. This led to the tradition of putting out your stocking for a gift.
In the 19th century, Dutch emigrants took the 'Sinterklaas' tradition to America. There it was better known by the name 'Santaklaus' and this tradition continued on around the world.

Now it is the turn of the Air Force 1 Fontanka. The model has a unique design with a pink upper that reminds us of candy canes. Furthermore, the soles come dressed in white to match the winter snow.
Shortly after Christmas we celebrateNew Year. During New Year, a lot of traditions have arisen, including the lighting of fireworks. It is believed that there are many spirits of the deceased and demons at the turn of the year. To chase away these creatures, a lot of noise had to be present. This resulted in the setting off of fireworks and the ringing of bells.
