'Can we get much higher?' – Such was the question posed by Kanye's Dark Fantasy. Between the Kobe 9 and the oddball designs of Rick Owens, sneakers are slowly creeping on up higher and higher – we'll be seeing knee-high kicks as the norm before we know it! The latest release in adidas's Y-3 line has taken a stab at producing a basketball-inspired design ultra-high top. Looking like a stylised version of Kobe's signature high, the Hayworth Guard High busts out the triple black with an upper crafted from a mix of suede, leather and mesh – finished off with waxed laces for that extra refined touch. These don't come cheap, but you can get your pair now exclusively through Y-3 stockists like KITH.
