Neil Barrett may have won many grown-up sneaker fiends over with his sophisticated takes on sneakers such as Baseball Boots with a burnished leather or bright neon yellow perforated upper, but the British designer’s progressive designs definitely doesn’t stop at luxury sneakers. Take a turn back to the Barrett’s sleek runway designs that often take a play on simplicity by elaborating on tailoring and fabric instead of colors, the designer’s Spring/Summer 2010 Hi-Top Dress Shoe is perfect hit which fuses the comfort of sneakers with dress shoes. The light-hearted suede dress shoe is cut high and features contrasting panels (grey on one side, tan on the other) around the ankle. The soles are meant to go the distance with rubber soles usually found on sneakers. Definitely formal enough for the office yet fit for hikes through the city, the Hi-Top Dress Shoes are now available for purchase via: The Corner. Pair with this season’s popular cropped front pleated trousers for the street dandy look that will update your work wardrobe.
