5 On It: Highsnobiety’s Proper Kick Drops


Jimmy Choo Belgravia Crocodile Embossed Leather High Top Sneakers

HighSnob says:

Simple, subtle, yet a banger from the new Jimmy Choo men’s sneaker collection for Fall/Winter 2012. The Made In Italy high top sneakers are now available from Mr. Porter.

Although the white bottom makes me pause, these croc embossed pieces are undeniable.  The silhouette is classic,  but the nuanced details really make this sneaker a  recent top drop.


Maison Martin Margiela Replica Leather Sneaker Mid Paint

HighSnob says:

The classic Margiela military trainer comes as a mid top for Fall/Winter 2012 with paint splatters all over. You can buy these now from Tres Bien.

These usually understated sneakers look like were swiped from SoHo between sessions.  The color really jumps out on this canvas, and the splatter use is pulled off surprisingly well and fairly controlled for such a subject.


Yves Saint Laurent Navy Malibu Hiking Sneakers

HighSnob says:

This is our favorite sneaker so far from the Yves Saint Laurent Fall/Winter 2012 Men’s Sneaker Collection. The Malibu comes with hiking boot accents and a great all navy colorway. Ssense has them in stock now.

Somewhere between high fashion boot and high top, these YSLs will easily make an outfit, whether showcased or on a stealth wealth tip.  Really love the understated balance on display here.

Christian Louboutin Men’s Flat Navy Python

HighSnob says:

Luxury sneakers and Christian Louboutin even belong for men at this point into one sentence. We chose one of his more toned down styles in an navy python. You can buy these directly from the designer here.

Simply put, if the previous YSL offerings were understated, these Louboutin’s are in your face.  Shades of PF Flyers…you know…for heads.

Balenciaga Cambure Panelled Leather High Top Sneaker

HighSnob says:

Here is a highlight from the new Balenciaga collection. The high top comes in all red with a very interesting side panel construction. Clean, but still very special and with beautiful details. The sneaker is now in stock at Mr. Porter.

All I can think about when I look at these burners?
[Verse 2: Pusha TIt’s prime time, my top back, this pimp game hoe. I’m red leather, this cocaine, I’m Rick James hoe.
