Reebok Zig Kinetica Concept_Type1
After launching its all-new Zig Kinetica silhouette earlier this month with the help of champion UFC fighter Conor McGregor, Reebok’s back with another clean colorway, this time in a “White/Gum” iteration. This version of the Zig Kinetica — dubbed the ‘Concept_Type1’ — blends an array of shapes, lines, and panels together on its upper while an adjustable midfoot strap ties the futuristic kicks together. The silhouette was originally inspired by an early-’00s zig-zag midsole from Reebok’s archives, and the minimalist look of the Zig Kinetica Concept_Type1 makes them a stylish option for casual wear.
Another spring-ready canvas option. These legendary Vans Sk8-His are not just ideal for the warmer months, but they’re the perfect beaters, too, thanks to their sturdy canvas upper and reinforced toe, not forgetting that super affordable price tag.
Heron Preston Protection
The Protection sneaker by Heron Preston looks built for exploring lunar surfaces. It also looks built for a white-sneaker-needing wardrobe. For those that don’t want to go all white, this sneaker adds some nice vivid yellow splashes through the toggle-fastening lace system.
HOKA One One x Opening Ceremony Bondi 5
Coming with the signature HOKA cushioning system, a full EVA midsole, and an extra-wide footbed, Opening Ceremony’s spin on the HOKA Bondi is one comfy white sneaker. A chunky clean white sole is offset nicely by the off-white upper.
Puma CELL Viper
Another one for those that don’t want to go all-white, the CELL Viper brings back some ’90s Puma nostalgia. Green overlays add some color to a piece that is all-out retro.
New Balance CT1500
OK, this isn’t strictly white, but hey, it’s close enough! Going retro again, the New Balance CT1500 is inspired by the original version that launched back in 1988. Coming with a court-inspired upper but with a low-style form, the CT1500 is a New Balance you don’t see much of on the street.
adidas is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Superstar this year, and while we’ve just been treated to the merging of two icons by way of the new Superstan, we’re still all about the classic. This updated Superstar, from the SS20 collection, follows the classic form but adds some nice new detail through the red heel tab.
Salomon XT-Wings 2 ADV
We all know Salomon sneakers are technical, but the brand’s Advanced subline takes things even further. This icy white piece from the line packs a bungee-style lace system, rubberized reinforcement at the heel, and a treaded Contragrip® rubber outsole. No slipping in this one.
A.P.C. is well known for doing minimal staples, and doing them well. Blending athleisure with hiking footwear, this reflective detail suede piece will go with pretty much everything.
Veja x Rick Owens Venturi
Getting a pair of Rick Owens-designed sneakers for $200 is a pretty smart move. And as if the price wasn’t reason enough, this pair, in collaboration with eco-conscious footwear label, Veja, is also made from biodegradable faux leather.
