Step Out in the Best Men’s High-Top Sneakers this Season

Fall calls for something a little bit different, something a bit tougher and more versatile on the footwear front. Fall calls for high-tops. Specifically, it calls for sneakers that blend comfort and classic looks with durability and an added flair to take on chilly, rainy autumn weather. These days, high-top sneakers can also be worn like your favorite dress shoes or chukka boots – it’s all about getting the right pair for you. Hopefully, you’ll find yours from our favorites below.

Converse Chuck Taylor 70 High-Top – $85

For a mere $85, you’re getting a stylish high-top sneaker from Converse, a brand that pioneered and perfected the silhouette. The Chuck 70 features thicker rubber and OrthoLite cushioning to recraft and reimagine a timeless style for today’s modern man. So, what’s our take on that? The Chuck 70 should be worn with slim grey denim, a henley, and a chambray shirt to your next concert.

Merging the sort of construction and materials more typically found in fine dress shoes has proven an effective and supremely stylish strategy for Greats over the years.  The Royale High is no different. We suggest you try these out with a charcoal herringbone suit and a chambray dress shirt for office style that gives off a slightly devil-may-care vibe.
