Before you're subjected to thick weather-proof boots, get in all the sneaker wearing you can. Just think practically. For fall, you'll want a little more coverage than a low-top to block wind and any unexpected weather. High-top sneakers are great for those transitional days. Here are some of the best.

1| Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars


The not-quite-white color on these All Stars is just enough to make them stand out.

If you're a Stan Smiths kinda guy, these are an easy switch for cooler days.

3| Air Jordan 12 Retro 


Air Jordan's 12 Retro is the intersection of function and fashion—especially in this burgundy colorway.  

4| Vans OG Mid Skool 


Elevate your go-to vans with a nubuck version. 

5| Koio Primo Luna

This purple-gray sneaker is a cool addition to a dark fall wardrobe.

Beige suede is a no-brainer for wearing with chinos.

Frye's signature leather looks just as good on a sneaker as it does a boot. The gum midsole on this pair makes it stand out, too.  

8| Vince Cullen Sneaker 


Brown suede is unexpected in a sneaker, but easy to wear.  

9| Golden Goose Francy High-Top Sneaker 


Some pre-distressed goodness from the brand with a cult-like following.

10| Bally Hedern Sneaker 


Bally's signature stripe adds just a hint of athletic influence.

11| Balenciaga Leather and Suede Mesh High-Tops 


This is a true fashion sneaker, but it doesn't skimp on functional sneaker detailing, like breathable mesh. Maybe not great for rainy days. 

12| Saint Laurent Court Classic High

If you're going to do a red sneaker, go for something a little more muted.

13| Lanvin Perforated Leather Sneaker 


These Lanvin sneakers lean into the throwback culture with a slightly bulky build and perforated toeboxes. 

14| Gucci Varsity Sneaker

This is not unlike a bulky sneaker you would've worn in the '90s. In a good way.  

15| Louis Vuitton Match-Up Sneaker Boot 


The iconic LV print looks especially great in black and gray.
