Don’t tell the sneakerheads, but you really need only one of the best white sneakers to make your closet sing. The former tennis shoe is a wardrobe essential for literally anyone who wears clothing, and their popularity cannot be understated—especially now that “dressing down” has taken on a whole new meaning.
Sporting white sneakers may not be as revolutionary as anointing your feet with campy Velcro sandals or ugly dad shoes, but it’s the simplicity and versatility that make them a reliable wardrobe staple—not to mention, white kicks are virtually impossible to “mess up.”
High-tops with a puffy-sleeve blouse and high-waist denim? Love to see it. A linen midi dress with leather sneakers? Ditto. Since white sneakers are essentially a blank canvas, their outfit potential is endless—and their versatility knows no activity bounds either; comfy lace-ups can take you from a long weekend ride to an alfresco dinner date with little to no effort. (Oh, and don’t sweat the scuffs: The coolest styles look best a little rough-and-tumble.)
