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 Bottega Veneta and Maison Margiela.
Find out what Yulia has to say about all the best white sneakers for women below.
Updated Classics and Collaborations
Nike Air Force 1 LX Tear Away
“Everyone knows the Air Force 1, it’s iconic and a no-brainer, so I wanted to pick this pair which is technically white, but can be transformed into a multicolor statement. This is the Air Force One “Tear Away” — customizable to an extent, you can change the colors of the upper by literally tearing off the white canvas.”
Vans 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 Skateboarding Superstar ADV x Duran
“It’s the year of the Superstar, which means we’re getting more and more new colorways and collaborations. This Superstar ADV is part of the collab between adidas Skateboarding and Mariah Duran. I love the subtle design, especially the small cactus embroidery that pays homage to New Mexico where Mariah is from.”
Nike Womens Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2
“This pair is truly summer-ready. Need proof? Just look to the breathable mesh, futuristic upper details (the OG shoe was from the ’00s, so makes sense), and the blue-and-white color combination.”
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
“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
Acne Studios SSENSE Exclusive Manhattan Sneakers
“A very clean colorway of these Acne Studios Manhattan sneakers is available exclusively at SSENSE. The pair is even on sale, so don’t sleep on it!”
Maison Margiela Retro Sneakers
“It feels good to make this list during summer sales because these chunky retro-fit sneakers by Maison Margiela are now slightly more accessible. This pair will definitely become a staple in your wardrobe.”
Gucci Rhyton Sneakers
“The beautiful off-white shade on these Gucci Rhyton Sneakers looks perfect for any vintage-inspired fits. This might be one of the most low-key Gucci sneakers in terms of branding and logo, that is precisely why I recommend them.”
Bottega Veneta Speedster Sneakers
“Bottega Veneta is one of the hottest luxury brands right now. The Speedster sneaker features a leather upper and chunky midsole making it a perfect “new” classic. This pair is actually one of few sneakers Mary-Kate Olsen has been spotted in.”
