These High-Tops Will (Literally) Elevate Your Sneaker Game
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.
2| Adidas Pro Model
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.
6| Kenneth Cole Mid Sneaker
Beige suede is a no-brainer for wearing with chinos.
7| Frye Courtesy Wythe Court
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.
