Leave the holiday party attire behind because today we’re kickin’ it old school with high-tops. According to Converse, between 1948-1958 high top sneakers made their first appearance on the fashion scene.
With the invention of Rock & Roll came the Rock & Roll “uniform” consisting of jeans, a leather jacket, and of course…high-top sneakers. Around the time the high-top sneaker was introduced so was The National Basketball Association, growing up together in fashion/sport unison.
Today, the high-top sneaker can still be seen among teens and young adults — a classic that lives on.
