Many of the most coveted sneakers only come in men's sizes, and a good amount of sportswear brands still persist in offering women pink, glittery shoes. 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.
While there's no questioning an all-black sneaker's place in an outfit, a pair of squeaky-clean white creps is essential to any woman's 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.
Brought to you by Highsnobiety curator Yulia Pankova, our selection includes white sneakers for women from a range of classic sportswear brands such as adidas, Reebok, and Nike, as well as luxury labels like Maison Martin Margiela and Balenciaga.
Find out what Yulia has to say about all the best white sneakers for women below.
Updated Classics and Collaborations
adidas Originals Continental 80
"If you're into the '80s, you'll love the style of adidas Originals Continental 80. The colorway I picked is very neutral, which I think offers a slightly more sophisticated vibe than crisp white sneakers."
Converse Concrete Heat Run Star Hike
Concrete Heat Run Star Hike
"It's not easy to find something "different" when looking for sneakers, but Converse's Run Star Hike fulfills that mission. The upper is made of semi-transparent white mesh which is summer-appropriate, plus it features some colorful accents on the outsole. Pink will always bring a bit of joy to you footwear rotation.
Nike Blazer Mid '77 Vintage Sneaker

Vans Old Skool Platform
Old Skool Platform
"Another updated classic — the Vans Old Skool Platform in triple white. This is the perfect canvas summer shoe if you're into platform sneakers."
adidas Originals Torsion TRDC
"Easily my favorite new adidas shoe of this year. The adidas Originals Torsion TRDC sneaker features a mix of white and off-white shades. The colorway is really versatile and has a hiking-shoe vibe to it because it's basically a modern version of the adidas Trediac shoe. If you're looking for a comfortable option, I assure you that hiking sneakers will be the best option."
Reebok DMX Series 2200 Zip
DMX Series 2200 Zip
"The DMX Series 2200 Zip is another underrated Reebok shoe. A sleek running silhouette and the amount of the details make it look like a limited edition style."
Asics Gel-Kayano 5 360
"Don't sleep on ASICS, especially when it comes to '90s-vibes sneakers. The Gel-Kayano 5 360 is packed with the best technologies like 360 degrees of GEL®️ technology which ensures maximum comfort. "
Luxury and Designer
Balenciaga Track Sneakers
"Love them or hate them, Balenciaga sneakers are now synonymous with the "contemporary luxe" style of the moment, so don't think twice if in need of some sneakers to flex. "
