From practical beginnings to global popularity.

Hi Top Converse are the most famous type of high-top trainers in the world, and are undoubtedly the shoes that popularised the style.

While they may look cool, the idea for high-tops actually came about for a functional reason. Originally, Hi Top Converse were exclusively sports trainers, designed to be used on the basketball court and not necessarily on the streets. For this reason, Hi Top Converse were designed with sports stars in mind, and it was decided that a good basketball shoe would protect the ankle. The idea was that the high top would help give the ankle support, and prevent it from being damaged on the court. The logo itself was even designed to give some extra protection, and you can see that the reinforced top is there to prevent stubbing.

Nowadays, Hi Top Converse trainers are primarily worn because they are trendy and fashionable. Sports stars tend to use more high performance shoes, because Converse have changed their design very little in decades. That’s not to say that Hit Top Converse wouldn’t be great for use on a basketball court.
