Every mag will tell you that every sneaker rotation should feature at least one pair of something; whether it’s an exclusive collab, a pair of beaters, a good pair of vintage kicks, or something else. We’d argue that there’s only one true essential in a rotation and that’s a pair of white Nike sneakers.

White Nike sneakers are basically the starting point of all modern-day sneakers. These iconic silhouettes — Air Max 90, Air Force 1, Jordan 1, to name a few — are so easily recognized and so well respected that they don’t need bold color palettes. In fact, there’s a strong case that these models are actually highlighted by a Triple White colorway, offering no distractions from the legendary base structure.

Below, we’ve put together a list of eight of the best white Nike sneakers to bolster your rotation. From the models listed above to other icons like the Air Max 95 or lesser-known pairs in the Waffle Debut or Court Vision, we’ve tried to prove that the Triple White colorway suits every shoe.

Air Max 97

$175
Buy at NIKE

The Air Max 97 is perhaps one of Nike's most interesting silhouettes. Inspired by Japanese bullet trains, the super-streamlined design is platformed by this tonal white colorway.

Air Max 90

The king of the Air Max kingdom, the Air Max 90 is a stone-cold classic. One of Tinker Hatfield's greatest legacies, it's a model that has seen its fair share of exclusive collaborations in striking colorways but we always come back to the basics: this white Air Max 90 is a serious does-everything design.

Air Force 1 '07

$100
Buy at NIKE

Okay, in the arena of white Nike sneakers, few loom larger than the Air Force 1. New York's favorite sneaker gained that title for a reason: it goes with literally everything.

Air Jordan 1 Low

$110
Buy at Nike

In recent years, the Air Jordan 1 has had too many big exclusives to count. It's felt like every week, a new riff on the varsity color palettes hits the net. But with so much noise around a single silhouette, sometimes the loudest thing you can do is keep things dialed down.

Air Max 95 Essential

NikeAir Max 95 Essential
$175
Buy at NIKE

The clue's in the name. Essential. The Air Max 95 is one of the comfier Nike kicks. With its chunky, Air-stacked sole unit and layered upper, the design can feel overcrowded with too many colors involved. That's why it looks so naturally good in tonal white.

Waffle Debut

$61
Buy at Nike

So far, all the white Nike sneakers we've listed have been simple leather iterations, but the Waffle Debut includes suede patches to switch up the textures, keeping things interesting despite the all-white palette.

Air Jordan 1 Low G

$140
Buy at Nike

Continuing on the theme of textures, the Air Jordan 1 Low G looks to grained leather uppers for a more premium take on the style. Without any color in the mix, textures like this shine much brighter than they would have.

Court Vision Low

$51
Buy at NIKE

A shoe that doesn't get its due credit, in our books, the Court Vision has understandably been compared to the canon or Jordan lows, but given the space to breathe, you can really appreciate the subtle variations in the design.
