Many of the most coveted sneakers only come in men's sizes, and a good amount of sportswear brands still persist in offering an inferior selection in women's sizes. Thankfully, some brands are catching up and offering sneakers that women actually want to wear. Having brought you some of the best black sneakers for women, we're now shining a light on the opposite end of the monochrome scale.
There's no questioning an all-black sneaker's place in an outfit, but a pair of squeaky-clean white creps is essential to any rotation, especially in summer. No matter what's going on from the ankles up, throwing on that new pair of white sneakers can make all the difference. Needless to say, preservation is key when it comes to white shoes, so you'll want to invest in the appropriate cleaning products to keep them looking as fresh-out-the-box as you can before inevitably submitting to IDGAF vibes.
Our selection includes white sneakers for women from a range of classic sportswear brands such as Li-Ning, Reebok, and Nike, as well as luxury labels like Maison Margiela and COMME des GARÇONS Homme Plus.
Browse our favorite pairs of white sneakers for women below.
Maison Margiela Tabi Low Top Trainers
While most of the Tabi hype is centered around Margiela’s collabs with Reebok, the brand has always produced its signature shoe in many variations. The Tabi Low Top is perfect for Summer and has all the makings of a shoe that’s essential to one’s collection.
Salomon XT-Wings 2
XT-Wings remains one of Salomon’s best-selling series. Luxury fashion’s foray into technical sneakers has given a new meaning to brands like Salomon, but true sneakerheads have always appreciated the brand's attention to detail. The abrasion-resistant mesh upper paired with a grippy rubber sole is sure to last you for seasons to come.
On x Highsnobiety Women’s Cloudswift
The latest drop from our Highsnobiety Sports flagship is a collaboration with On, the Swiss athletic company geared towards running. You can expect all the great attributes from the co-branded Cloudswift silhouette: its lightweight and durable Helion™ superfoam developed to assist with energy return, a recycled mesh upper, and its enlarged heel strike that creates a comfortable experience whether running or going on a casual outing.
Li-Ning Mix Ace Sneakers
Even though the Mix Ace Sneakers could be considered a technical shoe, the breathable weave and treaded rubber outsole are synonymous with sneakers that excel in everyday situations. If you’re looking for something different than your average run-of-the-mill white sneaker, the Mix Ace is sure to shake up your wardrobe in a good way.
Nike Dunk Low
I’m convinced Nike will never retire its line of Dunks since it’s one of the most coveted sneakers. This muted pair with off-white accents and gray leather fits easily in any sneaker rotation.
Mihara Yasuhiro Hank Low OG
Few sneakers embody sculptural elements as easily as the Hank Low OG. The ‘Original Sole’ which the designer is most known for and is seen here in the Hank Low, is prototyped using clay and then 3D scanned to capture the nuanced expressions. Mihara purposefully keeps production limited so adding these to your collection instantly sets you apart.
New Balance 550
New Balance continues its reign on the sneaker world with minds like Teddy Santis and Charlotte Lee contributing to the brand's recent renaissance. The new silhouette references 70’s running footwear but is made especially for lifestyle wear.
Maison Margiela x Reebok Classic Leather Memory Of
Margiela and Reebok continue their longstanding partnership with a new version of the iconic Reebok Classic. The Memory Of collection strips the sneaker down to its essentials invoking the esteemed fashion house's 'memory of' concept.
Nike x COMME des GARÇONS Homme Plus Air Foamposite One
The Foamposites have come a long way since first being released in 1997 during Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway’s third season with the Orlando Magic. COMME des GARÇONS Homme Plus touches up the overall aesthetics with elements mimicking a Japanese Zen Garden to elevate this sneaker to another level.
HOKA Clifton 8
The Clifton 8 is one of HOKA’s standout sneakers that has seen various technical and aesthetic overalls since it was released as the brand's first shoe in 2014. The award-winning silhouette is best known for providing unparalleled comfort and functions well for your everyday run or simply going for a stroll.
Acne Studios Canvas Slip-On Sneakers
A clean, simple sneaker that works well with just about any 'fit. What more could you ask for?
