We are a few days shy of Christmas and it seems that Nike is already celebrating ahead of us! Known for having Christmas-themed models, they’ve given the legendary dad shoe—the Air Monarch—a jolly twist that’s perfect for the Yuletide season!

The Air Monarch has been dubbed as an “Ugly Shoe” or better yet, a “Dad Shoe”—this has been an inside joke that has sparked debate among many. Yes, the typical dad may have this one or something similar in his arsenal but it’s comfy and affordable. Maybe if you weren’t asking for too much stuff, dad would’ve been in cooler shoes! That my friends is pure dad power right there.

Back to the shoe, the uppers boast of a predominantly white orientation, it is covered in nice amounts of leather thrown in for a full white shade—a nice subtle reference to snow.

The soles and the swoosh are decked out in dark brown that is reminiscent of bread or fruitcake (oh boy! We are hungry!) The strong hints of green round it all out with a nice Christmas feel to it, spread across the heel, the tongue and eyestays.

If you still haven’t decided on what perfect gift there is for your dad, or for yourself if you already are one, then by all means indulge in this funky chunky Nike treat.

Speaking of Christmas-inspired Nikes, this Dunk should be next to these Monarchs! Read about them, here!
