Girls’ high-tops have gone high fashion.
The classic sneaker silhouette has gotten a stylish makeover from some of the kids’ market’s trendiest brands. While these looks still maintain their sporty roots, they’ve stepped it up with flashy fashion details such as metallic trims, zippers, studs, sequins and glitter. Many of the high-tops are offered in neutral shades such as white, black and taupe, so they make a perfect, goes-with-anything wardrobe staple.
Giuseppe Zanotti has embraced the high-top trend in a big way. As part of his Giuseppe Junior collection for kids, launched last year, the Italian luxury designer offers a number of ankle-skimming sneakers, including this sleek, mixed-media style featuring velvet, patent leather and gold hardware accents.
