Some days you’re just not up to the game to dress up. We admit, it can be a chore. “What kind of look am I shooting for today?” “Does this shirt complement my body type?” “These trousers are comfortable, but are they good enough outdoors?” But even when you have those settled, you can be stuck on one crucial detail of your outfit: your shoes. My, my, my, how troublesome!
We forgive you if occasionally you just couldn’t care less. Don’t you sometimes wish there is an instant solution to your fashion dilemma? Well, there is! On your down times, you can always rely on white sneakers to save the day. They are everywhere, and they pair with almost everything.
If you’re ready to replace your old pair or if you’re just looking to add white sneakers to your repertoire, then you’re on the right page. Might we recommend these designer sneakers sure to pump your style?
White Designer Sneakers
Adidas Superstar 80s sneakers
Have a penchant for anything retro? Well, don on these sneakers and bring back the 80s vibe with you! The offwhite color is picked perfectly: it looks vintage, but it isn’t the dirty kind and definitely not worn out. This style hasn’t completely gone away, if we’re being honest, but today, it’s classic through and through.
Wooyoungmi Off-White Logo Sneakers
Another pick that tries to deviate away from looking like the standard white pair are these off-white logo sneakers. You won’t confuse these with any designer brands–with the label’s logo printed in the heels and midsoles, even embroidered at the tongue, everyone will know that these are from South Korean designer brand Wooyoungmi. These leather shoes don’t give away your laziness to mix n’ match, as they perfectly match any outfit like your meant to wear them together. Every. Single. Time.
Givenchy bicolour matte Low sneakers
If maximum impact with minimal effort is your go-to style, then give these Givenchy sneakers a try. We’d argue that it can go on its own without the bold cord detail, but it is such a solid choice that it will really give your streetwear clothes the amp you’re looking for.
adidas by Raf Simons Stan Smiths
There’s no question that Adidas can really produce designs that in the long run become classics. Stan Smiths have been around for four decades now, and their appeal has widened from being an athletic staple to among the basics of casual wear. The design has been developed time and again. Today, we have Raf Simons give a modern touch on the classic pair.
Maison Margiela pollock Replica sneakers
Cleaning is a practical concern that owners of white shoes have. Are they to be tossed out once we can’t remove the stains? We don’t think so, as the smudges make a statement of their own. These Maison Margiela sneakers are way ahead of you by strategically putting black splotches on their white shoes. It doesn’t make them an abomination in any way; we’d say they’re even successful in becoming edgier shoes.
Puma x Han Kjobenhavn Basket Stitched Sneaker
If you can’t make up your mind between preppy and athletic, then why not mix both? That is something that Puma x Han Kjobenhavn just gives you with their basket stitched sneakers. They’re extra comfortable too, thanks to the Trinomic Cushioning Technology incorporated in the material.
Thom Browne canvas tricolour sneakers
While white provides a good foundation, sometimes you need to splash just a little bit of color to add more character to your shoes. The red and black tossed in really succeeds in making these canvas sneakers more attention-grabbing. Thom Browne is more known for their traditional designs, but we don’t think anyone would dare say that this is traditional.
AMIRI Leather High-Top Sneakers
Now, we’re down to pair that you can resort to if you want to establish a more intensely modern look. These high-tops are dashing despite their monochromatic hue, given the bold silhouette created by the pair’s urbane fitted shaft. This Amiri leather pair is guaranteed to make you stand out no matter what your outfit is, regardless of how easy it is for you to have just picked it among the pieces in your shoe rack.
At this point, we can probably call white sneakers the ultimate casual footwear for men and women of all ages. It’s literally the most popular type of shoe that everyone can wear, but Valentino‘s Open sneakers offer a different and easier way to wear them through its slip-on style lace fastening that doesn’t require as much effort. The midnight blue stripe across the middle and gold embossed logo on the tongue bring a little sophistication to the casual shoes.
Ever heard of orthopedic shoes? They’re supposed to be good for your feet because of the structure that ‘corrects’ their form and they’re usually greeted by raised eyebrows and “what are those?” which is some people’s substitute for direct judgment. Well, joke’s on them because this Alexander McQueen pair is good-looking as they are helpful for your feet. The renowned designer’s name is plastered proudly on the tongue and black heel counter, getting you bragging rights along with the comfy shoes.
Combining hip hop and athleisure, both styles at the center of the fashion world right now, Off-White stays true to their brand calling and mission as they put out yet another fashionable shoe for the trendy youth. A bright yellow logo webbing is attached down the tongue, secured by the white laces, to pop out on top of the all-white suede exterior.
Portofino sneakers come in different colors, designs, prints, most of them extremely out-there. For minimalist tastes, this white version with thin red stitching is enough to make a statement. From the textured logo appliqués alone, they are sure to be noticeable from the back. Another logo patch is bedecked on the tongue, while the rest of the front is the usual round toe and white laces.
Some white sneakers take time to break in to be completely wearable without any pain, while others are never as good as the first time again. The Imperia sneakers are impossibly good as it skips on all those experiences, but it’s actually true that it feels good on the first wear and can keep its appearance throughout, thanks to their trademark Techmerino sockliners. Together with the elasticated laces, it gives your feet ample breathing room and keeps the outside looking fresh and sleek.
At the very least, the Ace sneakers give you a striking white pair of sneakers through Gucci‘s signature designs like the Web stripes on the sides and metallic snake-detailed logo heel counter, both in blue and red. The metal snaps at the side of the vamp can be another design element, otherwise, they’re there to give you the option of snapping on funky embroidered appliqués. Every pair comes with a couple and you can get more to assert different aspects of your personality.
An important note for sneakerheads this 2018: the thicker the sole, the better. It’s a rising trend that you’ll soon see everywhere. The Ayero sneakers, a product of Japanese designer Yohji Amamoto and Adidas, mix together the fairly new oversized sole trend with the white sneaker classic. It doesn’t bore the eyes with its combination of leather, cotton, swanky laces, and Y-3 logo patch heel counter.
BERLUTI Leather Sneakers

BUSCEMI lace-up hi-top sneakers
We’ve seen many hi-top sneakers before, but nothing like this Buscemi masterpiece.

Common Projects likes to go back to the basics, though, and we’re glad they have because an all-white sneakers beats all others any day. It’s got everything we wish: solid rubber soles, low top, and slim construction.
BALENCIAGA Match Tennis Distressed Leather Sneakers
We owe the popularity of the white sneaker trend to its tennis shoe roots. Match from Balenciaga cops its design from the originals and decks it out with a hint of graffiti on the logo-printed rubber soles. It’s purposely distressed and lightly stained for the lived-in look, so you don’t have to get your friends to step on them and get your new white shoes dirtied a little.
