Wearing high-top sneakers has always been a bit more daunting than wearing low-tops. Who knew that extra bit of ankle support could present so many questions? Do you wear cropped pants and display it? Should you tuck your pants into it or roll them up? Can you wear high-tops with shorts and be taken seriously?

The Vans Sk8-Hi, however, is a little different. It's equally as flexible as the Old Skool—its low-top counterpart—and, despite its origins as a skate shoe, fits universally into most fashion aesthetics. With the Old Skool's current rise in popularity, however, we want to shine a light once again on the recently overlooked Sk8-Hi, because not only has there been some sick collaborations recently, but it's also one of our all-time favorite sneakers.

With that classic high-top dilemma in mind, we decided to hit up the 'gram to find out how the cool kids are wearing their Sk8-His these days. As expected, styling options are endless; like we said, this is a sneaker that's flexible and ever-present across fashion cultures. So pull out an old pair or hit up Vans to cop some new ones and share your looks with @Highsnobiety on Instagram using the #Snobshots hashtag—if you're lucky we might even give you a repost.
