Travis Scott is a man that does not let up. He’s constantly creating—music, film, endorsement deals, clothing, and of course, an unending line of luxury kicks. His footwear output ranges from multi-layered challenges to clean minimalist looks, meaning you have a fantastic range of options when it comes to planning your outfit from the shoes up.
When you’re working with statement sneakers, you’re sending out a message about how you want to be perceived at that moment in time. Do you want to be seen as a man that’s laid back, calm, and collected as you go about your business? Or do you want to be seen as a woman that’s working hard, putting effort into building your better self?
High tops for fun times
One, high-tops by their very nature are about play. They’re sports shoes, specifically for the basketball court, and they instantly send out the message that you’re here to have some fun.
The second reason is that high-tops will bunch up the bottom of your pant legs. You can avoid this by folding up the pant cuffs, wearing pants that are tight enough to tuck into the high-tops, or of course you can always wear shorts.
But any way you play with your high-tops, you’re going to have a harder time passing them off as anything approaching business-like, a job best left to lower-cut footwear.
So what are the best casual looks? The man himself, Travis Scott, wears a lot of blue and black jean combinations with his high-tops. The solid color of his pants let him play around with footwear that have prints or patterns.
As to whether you go baggy and let your cuffs bunch up, or if you go with tighter legwear that tucks into the shoes, that’s a personal choice. But try alternating your pants with your top—if you go tighter down below, try an oversized jacket and printed-shirt combination up top, or vice-versa.

Clothing styles for low top sneakers
Low-top sneakers tend to be a bit more versatile when it comes to working up outfits. We mentioned above that high-tops will bunch up pants, which is not a good look for more business-oriented attire, but low tops work just fine in that situation.
Say you’ve got your hands on a pair of Travis Scott x Nike SB shoes. If you’re going casual the same tips we suggested for the high-tops apply. Keep your legwear simple in both its colorization and silhouette, so you don’t distract from your footwear.
This is especially true if you go with one of Scott’s more active designs like the Travis Scott x Nike SB Dunk Lows. There’s such a thing as being too busy, and kicks with this much patterning matched with overly adorned pants will combine to make you look like a mess. Highly decorative shoes? Keep your legs simple.
Your top, however, can add more visual flair. Be it a hoodie, a button-down long-sleeve, or a patterned t-shirt, you have way more latitude for experimentation.
If you want to go with a look that is a little more business-oriented, your Travis Scott shoes will still work fine as a jumping-off point. Pleated pants with a simple single color plus a button-down, and maybe even a business jacket and tie, will have you looking sharp, but with a playful edge.
