Aaah, the week before Christmas. The world—or at least the American Northeast—is blanketed in half a foot of snow, packages galore are starting to accumulate on the doorsteps and in the lobbies of homes across the country, and a tepid sense of holiday cheer is slowly starting to set in. All is as it should be. Wait, what? C'mon, now. You mean to tell me you haven't done a single second of holiday shopping yet? Say it ain't so! You're better than this, man. I'm not mad. I'm disappointed.

Luckily for you, Adidas and its annual end of year sale is here to bail your sorry ass out again. (Although, to be clear, there's no guarantee any of what you order will arrive before the holiday.) It's been a good year for the Three Stripes, and the German sportswear giant is here to share the love by spreading some much-needed yuletide greetings—in the form of steep discounts on sneakers (Stan Smiths! Sambas! Superstars!) and a WIDE selection of winter-ready athletic apparel.

So feel free to stock up, and then print out a picture of your purchases for a makeshift IOU that's, like, basically the same thing as having the items on-hand. (Keep telling yourself that, pal.) Or better yet, buy a gift for the one person who won't care if it arrives a full week after the holiday: you! You've earned it. Well, not really. But 'tis the season, right? And if you're Team Stripes all the way, there's few better places to start your last-minute gift shopping than the brand's blowout holiday bash.

To help you on your search, here's but a few of our favorite items to keep top of mind while you stress-scroll through the full array of options. You got this, homie.
