Whilst Martin Margiela’s remain the dream version, single-colour hi-top trainers are looking like a hot item for summer and are available at all prices. Ideal with cut-off denim shorts, slim, cropped pants, or under your boiler suit! Here are 5 of the best.
ASOS have Reeboks in four colours. So classic they’re approaching a cult in their so-normal-they’re-astonishing way. Not a Reebok guy? Over at Oki-Ni an alternative to the budget-busting Margiela are the RAF by Raf Simons (yes, really!) hi-tops in black and white or Vans Sk8 Hi.
Finally, the perennially classy (though strangely quiet of late) POSTE have high-end but affordable options Veja Grid and Common Projects Mid Achilles.
Clockwise from top left: Veja Grid, VANS, Reebok, RAF, Common Projects.
