If you have been living in a hole for the past couple years you didn’t know high-tops are all over the place. Huge designers including Tom Ford, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton are all designing some amazing high-top styles. These sneakers aren’t just for basketball anymore. I’ve done a ton of research and found some amazing high-top choices for spring/summer. I know what a pain in the rear it can be to find something online you love and then not be able to track them down. So I’ve done my best to find out where you can buy “most” of my recommendations below.
I haven’t always been a “high-top guy”. I did rock the Nike Air Force 1s back in the day, but my style changed into a low top sneaker for a long time. It wasn’t until I picked up a pair of Golden Goose Deluxe Brand a year or so ago that I caught the high-top fever. Since then I’ve really found there to be some great high-tops on the market depending on what you want to use them for. The obvious choice is wearing them with denim, but there are some great styles that can be worn with suits. They also go very well with the jogger trend right now. Lets take a look at what I dug up…
Possible my favorite High top this season (probably i bias here as I just bought them)
A more classic look of the Saint Laurent SL/10 Court
Alexander McQueen style could be dressed up or down
Christian Louboutin has a couple styles I just love… but good luck finding any of them
These ones are just SO cool!!! I’ve been searching everywhere and can’t locate…
Valentino has there signature camo in these Air Force 1 inspired style
Giuseppe Zanotti has some pretty great styles – This one jumped out at me.
Hermes makes the softest Leather shoes I’ve ever owned. Something really special about their stuff.
Gucci makes some fun styles as well as some dress up high-tops
Tom Ford – These puppies are fabulous……..
Louis Vuitton – has some great styles – these 2 are my favorite – I have the first in black and they look great with a suit!
Common projects – simple and great for everyday or every-night…
Givenchy has a sneaker style that is very popular right now.
Buscemi – These shoes are just sick – There details are really something. I probably get the most comments on my 100mm then any other shoe I own. I love these 2 styles.
Chanel – These are tough to find… I’ll just leave it at that.
I figure the best place to end is wear it began Golden Goose Deluxe Brand – I couple of my favorite styles now…
It doesn’t matter what high-tops you go with, the best part about them is how easy they are to wear. Don’t be afraid to wear sneakers with a suit and make things a little more edgy. I hope I’ve helped inspire you today.. I’m going to go throw on my Saint Laurent now and play some b ball… i joke. I got Nike for those types of activities.

Absolutely love the YSL and Louboutin sneakers as long as they are black and a bit more lowkey.
