Consider yourself warned: High-tops are making a serious comeback. 

The reign of the ankle-flaunting Adidas Superstar might just be coming to an end. Recently, stars like Bella Hadid have been spotted stepping out in sneakers of a different kind—ones that actually cover your ankles. Now, it's a common misconception that unless you have mile-long, model-like legs high-tops are out of the question. We're here to prove that theory wrong and give you the tools you need to complete insanely on-trend, rockin' outfits.

Fashion-forward high-tops, like the ones below, are perfect for taking your usual Atleisure wear to the next level. You could pull a Bella and pair them with leggings, a cropped vintage sweatshirt, mirrored sunnies and an amazing bag or you could throw on some leather pants or skinny jeans for a slightly dressier appeal.

Doesn't Lily Aldridge look like the ultimate cool girl? The model slam dunk-ed in the style department when she strapped on that sporty, bright-white pair to stroll around NYC in. When in doubt, have bomber jackets and joggers be your go-to grab for wearing b-ball-esque sneakers like this. If you're confident with your styling ability, tuck a white tee into a denim skirt and make like Kourtney Kardashian by tying a bandana around your neck—choker-style.

ESC: High Tops, Nina Agdal


The popularity of Chuck Taylor's continues to grow and their allure is a no-brainer. They're probably the most subtle of high-top sneakers when it comes to bulkiness. Nina Agdal chose to play her patterned ones down in yoga pants and a backpack, but maxi dresses are always a cute option in sneakers like this. Because the ones we've suggested below have a colorful design, stick with solid shades (like a white or bronze dress) up top.
