For Fall/Winter 2018 Levi’s® continues to expand its lineup of tapered jeans and introduces new streetwear-inspired styles: the Hi-Ball Roll. These jeans celebrate sneaker culture which is why Levi’s® produced a pre-cuffed version—the Hi-Ball Roll. These jeans are all about maximum footwear capability. After all, no one wants a pant leg getting in the way of their fresh new kicks.
“Sneaker culture is a big influence on men’s style today. A lot of guys will pick their sneaker first and put their outfit together around their shoes. So, we designed jeans that work with your sneakers. They are tapered at the ankle and sit on the sneaker rather than flood over it. We also turned the volume up on the back patch and red tab.” —Jonathan Cheung, SVP, Global Design at Levi’s®
This ankle-revealing cut incorporates the current popularity of the tapered-at-the-ankle fit along with the versatility of cropped jeans. Designed to show off the most important of features—a hype-worthy pair of sneakers—the Hi-Ball mixes the seat and thigh of the classic 501® with the tapered leg-opening of the 512™. It also comes pre-cuffed to help guys achieve that perfect cropped length, so that they can show off their stylish kicks—sneakers or otherwise. Finally, in a nod to the current logo-obsession of sneaker and streetwear culture, the Hi-Ball will feature oversized versions of the iconic patch and tab on the back.
