HighSnobiety is a daily online lifestyle magazine and news site, primarily reporting on sneakers, streetwear fashion, street art, toys and lifestyle items as well as events.
HighSnobiety is separated into five distinct categories: Fashion, Footwear, Music, Lifestyle, and Art & Design. While those categories each cover a unique topic, the thing holding them all together is the fact that snobs exist for all of them. There are fashion snobs, footwear snobs, music snobs, lifestyle snobs (not as much) and art & design snobs all over the world. High Snobiety is the premier lifestyle magazine for snobs of all types (but who like to think of themselves as snobs in a good way). The editorial approach to High Snobiety is decidedly not snobby at all, and articles like “Dallas Rising: Contemporary Art in the Texan Metropolis” offer well thought-out, informative pieces about interesting topics. There are also great music videos, lists, and other items which you’d expect from a forward-thinking 21st century lifestyle publication with talented writers covering interesting topics.
High Snobiety is a Complex Media magazine, and the topics which it covers are similar to the many other Complex properties. The footwear section of the magazine largely features sneakers, and the music section largely covers hip-hop. The site also has its own store — although items are currently limited to a couple print versions of the High Snobiety magazine as well as hats with the brand’s logo. Despite that store’s limited selection, there’s also a High Snobiety store guide that helps you find brick-and-mortar stores with great products throughout the world. The site has profiled stores throughout many major cities, such as New York, Berlin, Paris, Dubai and Hong Kong. The store guide features information about the types of products offered at each location, as well as a map and hours.
