Stepping out in sneakers calls for quality, especially when the weather can shift at any moment. That’s why high-tops are such a prime style move. They’ve got more heft and toughness to ‘em than kicks that hit below your ankle, and they inject both versatility and old-school cool into any outfit (seriously, try any one of these pairs with slim dark denim, a light blue Oxford, and an unstructured navy cotton blazer). Feast your eyes on our picks for the best men’s high-top sneakers this season.
Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star High-Top – $45-$70
The best men’s high-top sneakers all owe a debt of gratitude to Converse. Chucks are a timeless classic that’t have only gotten better over the years, if only for their status as perhaps the most recognizable high-top silhouette on the market. Do it up in an all-black color combo for look that’s just a bit sharper, or opt for the the rock n’ roll, all-white original.
SeaVees Huntington Middie – $71
A slip-on that also happens to be a sneaker … that also happens to be a chukka? That’s the Huntington Middie, an take on the high-top in a more unique color than average. This pair would look killer with rolled light wash denim and an off-white henley — beer in hand and aviators on, of course.
P.F. Flyers All-American Hi – $70
You can’t misstep (pun intended) with a brand that gets all the details right. Truly, the All-American Hi Sneakers from P.F. Flyers are tough, durable, and utterly classic. Wear them with light khaki chinos and a striped navy tee, plus your favorite denim jacket, for sensible spring style.
GREATS Royale High – $199
If you fancy going the sleek and minimal route, the GREATS Royale High is your best pick. Made of premium materials with a price tag that’s not outrageous, the Royale High is as dressy as it gets for a pair of high-top kicks.
KOIO Primo Roccia Sneakers – $298
By far the most polished (and pricey) option on this list, these handsome high-top sneakers are designed with today’s modern man in mind. Free to wear these sneakers with a mid-blue chambray suit and a slub grey T-shirt for a dressed-down look that’s still pretty upscale.
