Pumped Up Kicks

One of the hottest footwear trends for 2012 is the High Top. Suddenly they’re everywhere, worn by celebs including Beyonce, Miranda Kerr and Alicia Keyes, with designers Marc Jacobs, Lanvin and Isabel Marant making them key items in their collections. They add length to your legs and are super comfortable, especially the leather lined versions. Whats not to love?
Pair with skinny pants, leggings or coloured denim for a fresher look.

High tops are the Ultimate in off-duty or yummy mummy style! Here is the puffy Isabel Marant version on Beyonce and Miranda Kerr with their bubs.

Marc Jacobs version has done an 80’s club kid inspired, rainbow coloured version. Coming to Runway shoes & Accessories.

Celebs wearing high tops: Anne Hathaway and in Isabel Marant’s version – worn 2 very different ways.

What to wear with them? Leggings and a crisp shirt as shown on The Satorialist, or coloured denim. Or take a cue from Kate Bosworth’s softer version.
