Hi-tops are more than just a trainer; they’re a shoe, boot and general fashion multi-tasker. If you shy away from hi-tops because you’re not sure how to style them, here are three easy to wear outfit ideas.

Hi-tops go with pretty much any trouser with the exception of suit trousers and shorts. Roll-up your jeans or chinos, add a tee or shirt and give hi-tops a high five.

Smart casual in hi-tops

Nike Hi-Tops Outfit Idea for Men

Key Piece: Nike Air Force 1 Hi ’07, £79.99

A plain black hi-top is your best bet if you want to keep it smart. The Nike Air Force 1 Hi '07 in classic black works well with rolled-up dark slim chinos or black slim-fit jeans.

Worn with a white dress shirt, tie and a sharp grey blazer this is a modern take on smart casual. A skinny tie or an on-trend print shirt add some edge.

Man about town in hi-tops

Studded Hi-Tops Outfit Idea for Men

Key Piece: Giacomorelli Studded Hi-Tops, £250

The Oxford shirt is less formal than a dress shirt but still looks like you put the effort in. Style it with dark-wash slim fit jeans rolled-up, some fancy leather hi-tops and a statement watch.

These Giacomorelli studded hi-tops are definitely not for the gym and will get compliments. For something a bit out there, the Adidas Originals by Jeremy Scott range has some statement printed leather hi-tops fit for a king.

Off-duty in hi-tops

Canvas Hi-Tops Outfit Idea for Men

Key Piece: Converse All Star Hi-Tops, £60


Casual hi-tops work wonders with loose-fit distressed jeans, a bomber jacket and tee. Vans Sk8-Hi, the DC Argosy or Converse All Star Hi-Tops are three of the best casual hi-tops and come in a plethora of colour combinations.

The opportunities for creating your unique look are limitless. We love these olive Converse All Star Hi-Tops with a khaki or camo print jacket for working the military trend off-duty.
