In a sneaker landscape full of overdesigned sneaker collaborations and garish colorways, it can be easy to get lost in the multicolored sauce and overlook an essential colorway for all rotations – the all-white shoe. 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 all-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 Nike and Vans to more fashion-forward, luxury labels including Common Projects and 424.
Below, we’ve curated a selection of all white sneakers for men worth brightening up your rotation with right now, with price-points ranging between $65 and $409.
Read on to view all of our favorite white sneakers for men.
Nike Air Force 1
When Nike discontinued the Air Force 1 in 1984, the demand for this silhouette rocketed to the point that the brand was basically forced to bring it back a couple of years later. It’s easy to see why — the AF1 has a timeless appeal that will stand the test of time. This revisited version comes with an insane see-through Swoosh stitched on the side.
Reebok Classic Club C 85
Ever since it first hit the scene in 1985, Reebok’s Club C 85 sneakers have become a favorite among sneakerheads worldwide. Featuring a retro-inspired silhouette, this classic sneaker is not only pleasing on the eye, but its soft leather upper makes it super easy to keep clean, too.
Common Projects Original Achilles Low
When it comes to minimal and clean sneaker silhouettes, Common Projects is always front of mind. Here, the brand’s signature Achilles sneaker has been reimagined, featuring — aside from the traditional round toe and rubber midsole — a gold hot-stamped serial number on the side.
ASICS Gel-Kayano 5 OG
First seen in 1999, ASICS’ Gel Kayano 5s have received a timely update. Keeping its signature chunky silhouette and retro flavor, the sneaker is now arriving with Duomax technology and an updated lacing system, as well as a sleek new leather and suede upper.
Converse Lucky Star
It wouldn’t be spring without a pair of canvas sneakers. Try going with a pair of high-top Converse in a fresh all-white colorway. The striped midsole, logo badges, and old-school emblems at the back on this pair add a touch of retro style to the spring-ready shoe.
Nike Shox R4
Not too long ago, Nike revived the Shox R4, which first debuted in the early ’00s. Lots of features are identical to the OG version — from the metallic elements to the perforated details. But while the original colorway came in white and red, this revisited all-white version takes the Shox R4 to newer heights.
424 Dip Sneakers
Based in LA, Guillermo Andrade’s 424 is established as an apparel brand, but it offers pretty insane sneakers, too. This all-white version of the 42Force arrives with the signature dipped effect, which is hardly noticeable on the upper due to the white-on-white colorway.
Nike Zoom Vomero 5 SP
After Samuel Ross’ fashion-forward take on the Vomero, it was only right for the Swoosh to release its own take without that opinion-splitting block heel. This triple white version brings back the two separate Zoom Air units and midfoot, paired with reflective details throughout to make you stand out in the dark, too.
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.
adidas Originals Super Court Premiere
Last, but certainly not least, we had to include an adidas pair. Inspired by classic tennis shoes, the Super Court Premieres are made from white leather, paired with elevated details such as a suede tag and beige rubber sole. The light cushioning and mesh tongue also make them one of the more comfortable options on this list, too.
