Hey, Freshness Readers. We're only a week into December but we've already heard every Christmas song a hundred and one times. But you know what? We hope to hear them all a hundred and one more times. Holiday cheer is here to stay and we hope you're all filled with the magic of winter and lights and candy canes. After hitting you with a great speaker (Day One) and a sick jacket (Day Two), we bring you Day Three of our 12 Days of Freshness Gift Guide. Yay!

For our third day of holiday goodies, we have a brand that needs absolutely no introduction. The one, the only, his Swooshness – Nike. If you love sneakers at all (which you do!), you'll know that the Air Huarache was one of the shoes of the year. Designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield, they were originally released in 1991. After being lost in time for a while, they finally made a big comeback in 2014 with the OG "Scream Green" colorway. In just a few short months, the Air Huarache has quickly returned to the closets of sneakerheads everywhere, making it one of our favorite picks of the season.

The Nike Air Hurarache in "Umber Brown" and "Dark Grey" were released on Black Friday. Taking into consideration some of the other styles we're been seeing lately, the colors came as a bit of a surprise. Made with tonal suede uppers, they almost look like a pair loafers or boots at first glance. With nylon panel accents, the neoprene footsock, plastic ankle strap and clean white midsole, they offer a rare combination of sporty and sophisticated all wrapped up in beautiful shades of brown and grey. For those of you on this side of the pond, the Huarache comes in "Light Ash Grey", done up in a subdued palate with splashes of mustard yellow and also a premium "Safari" option, featuring Tinker Hatfield's famous jungle print against a grey and black upper with a bold pop of "Hyper Punch" pink on the tongue and heel.

The Nike Air Huarache in "Umber Brown" and "Dark Grey" are available now through select European Nike Sportswear retailers, including Oki-Ni. "Light Ash Grey" and "Safari" are also available online through sites like Nordstrom and Finish Line. Be sure to check your favorite sneaker stores or ebay for plenty of other great colorways to fit any and every personality. Happy shopping, y'all!
