It's no question, our fine city is full of alternative thinkers and creators. And we get it -- these types can be hard to impress. That's why we're looking to local Kickstarters for innovative holiday gifting. 

From the sleek sneaker pack that's at the top of our wish list, to three very different shoe lines (Who knew SF was such a shoemaking hub?), support local design and spread holiday cheer with seven kick-ass Kickstarters that are definitely worth backing.

1. Shrine Sneaker Pack, starting at $5

2. FlipSlip Foldable Shoes, starting at $25

3. Wrap Wallet, starting at $29

4. Mohinders Shoes, starting at $20 

5. GAUTAM Collection Bow Ties, starting at $6
