Rick Owens has been putting sneakers on the runway long before other designers decided to give it a go (see: Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel haute couture and Ralph Lauren this season). Thus, it was fitting that for his fall '14 collection, Owens raised the urban athletic stakes even further with a thigh-top. These clever boots were paired with coordinated leather and knit pieces, melding into one surprisingly sophisticated look. With white rubber sole and toecap reminiscent of classic Converse basketball trainers, these styles showed serious game.
