Pitting icy modernity against worn-in familiarity, the latest offerings in men’s high-top sneakers thrive on the unexpected jelling of disparate influences. While there is an unshakeable synonimity between high-top sneakers and performative athletic wear, this latest collection celebrates binary-shattering edits. In clever instances of self-vandalism, distressed and smudged detailing is used to subvert the obsession with spotlessness that has governed sneaker culture. Elsewhere in this selection, sock-like rib knit collars propose an inventive update on breathable functionality while gesturing at a hybridized approach to footwear design. Through a wide array of leather structures, dressed-up renditions of distinct sneaker silhouettes are shown to be indispensible wardrobe staples in their pairing of aesthetic simplicity with elegant constructions. Whether in monochromatic colorways or exuberant all-over graphics, the high-top is relied upon for its ability to adapt alongside the garments it is styled with. While this curated selection of high-top sneakers is indebted to the numerous subcultures by whom the shoe has been adopted, the inventive spirit underlying each designer’s approach reaffirms its status as a renewable source of inspiration.
