There's no denying the versatility of clean white sneakers for men, whether it's to add a smarter touch to your ’fits or add some box-fresh shine to your summer look (for our women readers, you can find your white pair here).

If chosen wisely (and cleaned properly, unless you're going for that beater vibe), the right pair of all-white shoes will be the star of any sneaker collection. With smart-looking options in canvas or leather – all-white kicks come in every shape and size, from the slick and smart to chunkier, retro silhouettes, designed by everyone from yours truly to Dior.

Below, we've curated a selection of white sneakers for men worth brightening up your rotation with right now, with price points ranging from affordable to pricey.

Well, it's a New Balance 574 like you've never seen it before. With the help of the New Balance Tokyo Design Studio, the 574 gets a very mature update, making it something like a dress shoe with a stitched sole unit. Then again, the jagged outsole feels more akin to a hiking design. We're not sure what's going on but we're into it.

Buy at Highsnobiety

Raf Simons’ Cylon 21 is part of the designer’s (Runner) collection and represents a pivot towards a new aesthetic, one we might not even be ready for yet. But considering Simons is always at the forefront of trends, and sometimes even too early for his own good (look at the adidas Ozweego), you’d be well off getting a pair of the Cylons now before they are sold out everywhere.
