Ladies, it’s time to get comfortable. Roll up those trousers, slap on some ankle socks and get your soles into this springtime style. All hail the hot new trend of high tops! The iconic b-ball shoe has hit the big time this Spring/ Summer thanks to the many fashion-credible celebs who have slipped into a pair or two over the past year.
Finally a footwear trend that makes sense! A shoe that encourages form and function to play happily together while you glide stylishly through your day. Available in a kaleidoscope of colours from muted pastels to neon brights, all combined with girlie prints or rocked-out studs – there’s a pair to suit your every outfit.
It was very difficult to finalise this edit, as we have loads in-store right now. BUT we did… so give us a high five for our Top 5 Womens High Tops at Surfdome!
It’s worth mentioning that we have over 100 styles to choose from so if these selects don’t bounce your ball, check out the rest of our collection now…Womens High Tops >
Inspired by the original Adidas slim basketball shoe from the 60s, these fuchsia kicks are made in suede upper and feature a touch of bling thanks to the metallic labelling.
Not going anywhere too quickly is the stud obsession. These, from Surfdome newcomer Ash, do it well with stars on Taupe leather. And should you need to take off your shoes in a hurry… the handy side zip will make it too easy.
Don’t you just love a Liberty print? We do! These bloomin’ beauties from Gola might as well be the poster shoe for spring. It’s pictured here in a cornflower blue floral print (there’s also a raspberry option) with a touch of blue suede detailing. And just when you thought this shoe couldn’t get any sweeter, look closely, the shoelaces are ribbons! Feminine high tops – done well by Gola.
The original Nike Skateboarding Blazer first hit the streets back in 2005 and was an instant hit with the skateboarding core. As a version of the Nike Blazer basketball shoe from the early 1970s, this skateboarding cousin introduced skate comfort features including the padded collar and insole cushioning. Featured here in light grey with a pastel melon swoosh, these shoes are a fresh take on neutrals and are set to compliment this season’s colour palette well.
We couldn’t post a round-up of high tops without including one of the most popular brands of the movement – Converse. But instead of promoting the famous Chuck Taylors (which we do have loads of), we’d thought it was time highlight its sibling, the Pro Leather. Converse introduced smooth suede instead of their trademark canvas to their popular basketball shoes in 1976. Fast forward to 2013 to see a range that’s full of pastels and brights with the iconic star continuing to take centre place. The lilac shade was one of our faves and has also been featured on Glamour magazine’s website round up of this season’s hottest trainers…
