5 of the best: single-colour Hi-Tops

By Colin Chapman on March 19th, 2009

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.

More lovely blue things

Isabelle’s post about the lovely blue cardigan made me look out for other items to fulfill menswear’s current blue moment. Other options to bring out the peacock in you include Acne Jeans’ (yes, them again!) rather stunning blue cords, these snazzy blue-soled shoes by Folk, high-gloss patent Commom Projects hi-tops from Poste and this super-cosy down-filled sweater by Patagonia also from Folk. At this point in the year it might be worth waiting for the sales to kick in (and given the C***** C*****) these could be some sales.

When you do buy just keep it blue.
