Give your feet some heel relief this season as StyleNest round up the best women’s high-top trainers.
From the Marant sneakers that have earned themselves cult fashion status to cheap and cheerful Topshop styles; high-tops are a key piece for AW12.
Channel the Sport Luxe Trend and wear them with silk track pants, a loose tee and a statement necklace. High tops make great shopping buddies too, so embrace the flat sole and wear with comfort.
Comfy, practical, stylish and versatile – they’re this season’s no brainer.
