High Tops have made a comeback in recent years, becoming increasingly trendy again with celebrities and style icons across the world.

An iconic style of basketball shoe in the 1980’s, High Tops became popular on the streets and with popular brands such as Converse, Nike and Adidas, the high top style is once again dominating the market with their unique style, colors, and branding.

How do you decide on which High-Tops to go for? How do you decide what to wear them with? We’ve collected some tips to help you out!

  • What style do you want?

    Decide on which style of high top you would like by considering their thickness, color, shape, size and design.

    The issue with thin high-top sneakers is that they can make your ankles look small and awkward if laced all the way up. important to consider your complete outfit when wearing high tops, perhaps look to places like Instagram and Pinterest to find motivational full outfits to use as style guides.

  • What color do you want?

    Color is important as a reflection of your personality and can really help to define your identity whilst setting you out from the crowd.

    What colors are currently popular in season? What are the base colors in most of your outfits? Perhaps consider what color most of your jewellery and accessories are so that you can coordinate your outfits with your new high tops.

  • What shall you wear with them? Skinny jeans are a great option when wearing high tops…

This is a great look and very contemporary - and it works for both men and women, since skinny jeans are popular for both genders! Be smart in pairing your skinny jeans or other skinny pants or tights with high tops. For example, if you're wearing black jeans, wear colored high tops. If you're wearing colorful jeans, maybe go for a subtler shoe colored choice.

Pair shorts with high tops for a summer look. This is especially a good option for men, who may not feel comfortable wearing shorts with sandals in the summertime. For women, pairing shorts with their high-top sneakers is super modern and also, again, highlights their figures and great legs!

High tops also offer extra ankle support which can be beneficial in protecting during sports in order to avoid ankle injuries.

They look amazing and are available in thousands of colours and styles to choose from.
