If you haven’t realized yet, high top sneakers are the new standard. But, we’re not talking just your run-of-the-mill NIKE AF1 or Retro Jordan. No no, leading designers from across the globe have met in a secret huddle and decided that Hi Tops are the fashion industry’s quarterback sneak (pun intended).

They’ve been on the runways, they’ve been in boutiques, they’ve been in all the fashion capitals of the world. The thing to remember is that the Designer Hi Top is always embellished. Look for absurd colorways, random straps and buckles, and blending of materials and textures. These details set the new high top away from the average high top. Get Familiar!!

u|T|o Endorses…..ATO MATSUMOTO HIGH TOP SNEAKERS. Matsumoto is a japanese designer best known for his  space-aged sneakers worn by Kanye (also shown on this site). But THESE BAD BOYS…are just pure Bird Flu Sick!! Quarantine my FEET after I cop these! I feel like Ato sent Converse an email saying, “Anything you can do, I can do BETTER” (with an mp3 of him singing it attached)! The back of the shoe has a dope zipper/strap feature, somethin that Chuck T just never really thought about. In short, Domo Arigatoo, Mr. ATO.

If you like the Air Yeezy’s then you will probably love these…

These Marty McFly looking shoes are called the ATO Cow Hide Boot from Japanese designer ATO MATSUMOTO.

These shoes come in black, silver, white, and red. But it’s something about the black that gets me. To be honest, I think these shoes may have inspired the Air Yeezy’s if you ask me. But that’s just how an Urban Graduate thinks. We always see the fashion connection…we have an eye for these types of things y’dig.
