These sweaters have become synonymous with holiday parties all over the world but, until now, their fun stopped where your pants began. At long last, shoe retailer Brooks has released a new design: a sneaker designed to look like ugliest sweater of all.

The sneaker is a real, functional running shoe, but with the added bonus that it's colored red and green for the holidays. The shoe features images of reindeer playing their "reindeer games," as well as "drifting snowflakes" around the sock-liner, Christmas trees, and the words "Happy Run."

Happy Holidays, from our shoes to yours!

Between rent, food, utilities, and other odds and ends, you'd be shocked how quickly money flies out the window. Understanding this (and keeping an eye on your finances) pays dividends in the long run.

But that's also assuming things go well or smoothly – unexpected expenses arise and those come with their own consequences.
