Whether you are shooting hoops on the court or having shots at the bar, high-top sneakers are a stylish choice of footwear. They work whenever you are off duty, and want to infuse your look with a rebellious urban edge. Musicians, sportsmen and actors have known this for a while (in N.E.R.D's track, "Everyone Nose (Remix)", Mr Lupe Fiasco raps "She had her high heels, I had my high tops"), and there's no reason why you can't get in on the action too. Click through the gallery above to see five of our favourite pairs this season.
