adidas High Tops

High tops bring classic street cred to work and play. From the court to the coffee shop, these basketball-inspired shoes have inherent coolness. Laced up to the top or with laces left flying, they bring flair to any outfit. High-top shoes were originally intended to protect basketball players' ankles — to give them extra support and cushion their lower legs from kicks. In athletic performance shoes today, high-cut shoes still provide that service, with an upper and padded collar made of leather, GORE-TEX, mesh or synthetics for durability and reinforcement. They're available for hiking, golf, mountain biking and basketball and are made with technologies that help keep your feet dry, cool and energised.

For less strenuous pursuits, high-top sneakers from adidas Originals revamp sports models of yesteryear. Direct from our archives, many of these heritage designs have modern styling, materials and colourways. Just check out the Forum, the Nizza High, the Centennial and the Top Ten. Fans can't give up and won't give up those looks. These shoes are great for walking, light hiking and standing on your feet for hours at a time. Come check out the wide selection of high tops at adidas stores and online today.

High Tops Frequently Asked Questions

High top sneakers can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, your mood and the specific style of your sneakers. High tops and jeans are a classic pairing — opt for slim-fit or straight-leg styles to balance the bulk of the shoes. Elevate your look with chinos for a smart-casual vibe. Shorts can work well in warm weather, but choose fitted or cuffed styles to avoid overwhelming your proportions. You can also pair high tops with mini skirts, midi skirts or even flowy maxi dresses.
High top running shoes can provide extra support and stability for your ankles, especially if you're prone to rolling them. This can be helpful on uneven terrain, for runners with weak ankles or for those just starting out. Higher tops can help keep out debris like dirt, rocks and water if you go trail running or run in wet conditions. On the minus side, high tops tend to be heavier and less flexible than low-top shoes, which can limit your range of motion and make your feet feel restricted.
High top sneakers are great for two things: support and style. On high top running shoes, the extended collar wraps around your ankle, offering potential stability and protection. This is especially useful in sports like basketball or for people with ankle issues. However, their iconic look transcends function, making them a versatile fashion staple that's easy to dress up or down.
