I'm loving high-top sneakers lately. You get the sportiness of a trainer with the height of a boot, while still being casually trendy and comfortable. Talk about the best of both worlds.
Deceptively simple and perfectly refined—a chukka style sneaker, like Stefano below from Peter Nappi, in black cavallo leather featuring single-piece construction, medium toe, minimalist eyelets, leather laces, and vero cuoio sole. Hits above ankle, is made in Italy from a single piece of leather, and is the perfect example. You can rock this with jeans and your favorite t-shirt, or a suit, and everything in between.
