I've Worn This Type of Sneaker for 7 Years, and I'll Never Stop

When it comes to top-notch sneaker styles, there’s one key silhouette that continues to reign supreme. Yep, classic white kicks. While there's certainly a smattering of other stellar picks out there these days (including those trendy color-blocked styles), it’s white sneakers that will continue to withhold the test of time given their timeless and versatile nature. Naturally, this is the reason why fashion people will continue to wear them on repeat. Yep, myself included. I’ve actually had at least one pair of white sneakers in my rotation for the last (at least) seven years. And I will continue to wear them. To note, my favorites right now are from Nike, Common Projects, Adidas, and Golden Goose.

To highlight some of the chicest sneakers in the market right now, I combed through some of our go-to shops and pulled out those that I think you’ll be into. I also thought some outfit inspiration could be of interest, so I’m showcasing how fashion people are styling white sneakers now. Keep scrolling for more.
