20 Trendy High Top Sneakers You’ll Love!

 

High top sneakers are a hot fashion trend for women of all ages! Style expert, journalist and fashion blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 20 of the best high top sneakers in a wide array of colors, styles and trends.

 

High top sneakers are one of the hottest shoe trends of 2021/2022 and I’m obsessed! While deciding what to post this week, I thought to myself it’s a no-brainer – like many fashion lovers on social media, I’ve been coveting a pair of Jordan 1 Mids. In fact, I was perusing one of my favorite retailer’s apps recently when up popped a pair of Jordan high top sneakers I desperately wanted. When I went to click on my size it said that the shoe was only available via a lottery system and to email them. I thought this is so reminiscent of the mid-to-late 90s when Jordans were extremely popular and very hard to come by. The only difference is we had a phone book and a landline and called every retailer in our jurisdiction to see if they were available or what time they were going to be released so we could stand in line.

I haven’t decided if I’m going to splurge on a pair of highly sought after/hard-to-come-by Jordans or the others that are on my wish list – the must have Golden Goose high top sneakers. I own several pairs of low-top Goldens that I absolutely adore and wear time and time again! I have wanted a pair of Golden Goose high tops for a while, but didn’t know if I could pull them off! I’ve seen so many cute outfit ideas on Pinterest and Instagram, that I know it’s only a matter of time until I splurge on a pair. This trend is beloved by many – from celebs to women of all ages. High top sneakers are so versatile! This style of shoe looks great with joggers and bomber jackets, high waisted denim, leggings, shorts, skirts, or a slip dress! 

If you are searching for a pair of designer high tops for fall, winter, or as a holiday gift for yourself or a loved one, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 20 of the best designer high tops for women in a variety of styles and colors. I hope you love them as much as I do! Xoxo

 

Air Jordan 1 Mid High Top Sneakers Are The Hottest Shoe Of The Season

I bought my first pair of Jordans in 96 or 97 and have been obsessed ever since. A few years ago I shared my pink snake embossed Air Jordans that I guard with my life. Those of you who love sneakers as much as I do, and are around my age remember the highly coveted EastBay catalog which showcased all the popular shoes including the hottest shoes by the greatest athlete of all time, Mr. Michael “Air Jordan.”I couldn’t wait for that catalog to arrive and circled all the sneakers that were on my wish list. In my opinion, they were “tight” and I had to have them! Shoes are my absolute weakness and these days I’m obsessed with high top sneakers, especially Jordan 1 Mids.

While perusing my favorite websites for a pair with absolutely no luck whatsoever, I stumbled on quite a few at Stockx. Have you shopped there? I haven’t just yet, but they have amazing reviews and I’m planning on doing so this week! This site allows you to bid on a variety of highly sought-after shoes that are either sold out or limited in stock.

Like many of you I love accessorizing my casual outfits with trendy sneakers. Jordan 1 Mids (AKA Jordan Mid 1s or Jordan 1) look great with slip dresses, mini skirts, midi skirts, dresses, crop jeans, distressed denim shorts and so much more! I absolutely adore these trendy high top sneakers in the color “pink quartz”, they are perfection!
