Construction & Aesthetic
I really like the look of these shoes. I’d never worn high-tops before, so I didn’t really know what to expect. When I’m wearing them, sometimes I forget I’m not wearing boots. To me, this Thursday model is kind of like a boot/sneaker hybrid.
I have the same problem with the premier high tops as I do with my Thursday Explorer boots — they’re quite difficult to put on and take off. Like the Explorers, the laces of these
Also, I wish the space between the eyelets was smaller. In other words, I’d prefer a smaller gap between the eyelets, so less of the laces and more of the leather upper were showing.
The leather upper creases quite easily. This doesn’t bother me, but I know that this really bugs some guys.
Other than these few minor things, I don’t have much to say by way of criticism for the high-tops.
These aren’t the kind of shoes that I’d wear to go hiking in the woods or for working outside. Therefore, they haven’t been through the wringer quite like my Thursday Explorers, but I’ve worn them enough to know that they’re quality shoes that’ll last.
Thursday High Top Sizing
I wear size 10.5 in running
I ordered these high tops in size 10, and they fit great. This is the same size as my Thursday Scout Chukkas.
Wear & Tear
I’ve worn these shoes for about a month and a half and, besides the creasing, I haven’t noticed much wear to speak of.
The white laces have gotten a little bit dirty, but that’s a quick fix (just wash the laces in warm, soapy water).
I’d recommend Thursday’s premier leather high-tops for guys who live in urban environments that are looking for a sleek pair of long-lasting high-top
