Street Style Sneak Peek: How to Wear High Top Shoes

Revive the 80s high top shoes trend by choosing fresh new colors, unique prints, and styles, embracing the modern and fashion forward.

Even if the high top sneakers are usually seen as sporty gear reserved for the gym, balance them right with your whole outfit, and strike a pose in a sartorial boho-spirited or sophisticated-chic look on fleek.
High top sneaker can sometimes make the ankles look awkward when you lace them all the way to the top tightly. Our pro tip is to never lace the kicks to the top loop, and tie them loosely instead. Another tip that will keep your body looks more proportional is to wear leg-wear that is wider at the bottom or allow for a peek of skin to pop out between the pants or the skirt and your shoes.

Let us make you see the high top shoes in a whole new light. Whether you’re running errands around town or headed out for a weekend brunch with friends, these sneakers will be the perfect finishing touch to your casual street style.

Roll the Bottoms of Jeans

This is how you will create a bit of volume to offset the sneakers and put the shoe in focus while purposefully showing a little ankle. A noticeable high top in a cool colorway can help mesh the tones of this kind of street style outfit.

Dress Up Your High-Tops 

Attract eyes downward (to a sheer overlay or frill on your skirt) by meeting the hemline right with the top of your shoe. This is a great way to highlight your legs and make them look even longer and leaner.
