Traditionally designed to give athletes added ankle support, the high top sneaker is a prime example of how athletic performance tropes have infiltrated the fashion world. Today, high top sneakers venture far further than the court, with stylish designs coming from all angles.

Most will be familiar with the classic silhouettes. From the iconic Converse Chuck 70 to Jordan 1, high tops have been a perennial staple of streetwear for years. But with new colorways and developments dropping every week, the styles at the top of this footwear trend are becoming harder and harder to identify.

What’s more, the style is not confined to streetwear alone. As with chunky silhouettes and sleeker, premium sneaker offerings, the luxury market now boasts a number of dope high tops sure to have necks breaking all season long.

Below, we’ve rounded up the best of the current high-top sneaker offering. Scroll on for some Highsnobiety-curated shopping inspiration, and click through to cop.


There’s no better time to be taking your everyday sneaker rotation up a level, what with the cold winds soon to be hitting your ankles.  Fortunately, 2018 has seen some super dope Jordan drops, from the satin-covered to Nigel Sylvester’s pre-distressed iteration.

At the more affordable end of our steezy high-top selection, however, recent releases such as the Vans x NASA Sk8-Hi collab and new Converse x COMME des GARÇONS Play designs are equally worthy additions for any sneaker collection.
