High-top sneakers are just as comfortable as their sportier low-top cousins, but far more weatherproof. They’re particularly good at outdoing their lower-cut relatives at those trans-seasonal times of year. However, when the weather turns chilly, high-quality leather and non-slip profile soles are vital, whether your choice falls on country-style vintage looks, colour-blocked styles or classic understatement.
Good padding around the shaft and ankle plus soft padding on the tongue are essential for sporty high-tops to avoid the hazard of chafing. Comfort and fit are enhanced by removable inlays, a breathable sole core and a footbed that manages the foot’s natural rolling motion and eases the strain on the longitudinal arch.
Contrast is the watchword when teaming high-top sneakers with an outfit. Bolder fashion warriors will embrace a combination of flexible rubber sole with elegant shirt and tailored jacket; trans-seasonal sneakers in quality leather also make a great team with dark denim or casual chinos. Only formal occasions or official events with a strict dress code will show them the door.
