Hi top shoes are sneakers that extend significantly over the ankle. Traditionally, the added ankle support was to help prevent ankle or other foot injuries. Today, the extra height is part of the style of the shoe and provides different ways to wear it with pants like skinny jeans.
High tops are mainly used on the basketball court but are also a centerpiece for street fashion. They lace high enough to add ankle support and help keep players from turning their ankles with sudden direction changes. Of course, when worn on the street it is fashionable to unlace the top part of the shoe and open it up.
Best known as a trend from the 1980s, the hi top sneakers have made a comeback with a wide variety of colours, styles, and brands. Most of which are available at Ed Harry at very affordable prices.
