The Freshest, Bestest White Sneakers Out This Summer
With the long sunny days of summer up ahead, what better time to invest in a new pair of white trainers? Sure, they might throw you into a state of constant anxiety at the prospect getting them dirty every time look at them, but the high of that first wear is worth chasing. Plus, they go with everything, can transform a solemn autumn outfit into the sprightly spring one and will keep you sharp well into summer. Here's our pick of the best new styles this season.
1| Common Projects
A twist on their classic Achilles model, the tournament low-top has the same sleek shape but keeps things lighter with canvas in place of leather.
2| Adidas Originals
Perforated side and heel panels give this CourtVantage low-top plenty of breathability and the laced-up slip on style is ideal for anyone lazy, or on the run from the law.
Give your battered pair of Vans Old Skool trainers some respite with these cream canvas deck shoes. Pair with some long socks for ultimate hipster points.
SB Portmore II Solarsoft Men's Skateboarding Shoe might sound like an incredible complicated proposal, but it's really just shop talk for very comfortable (and handsome) slip on shoe.
5| Maison Margiela
These mesh and leather sneakers have breathable panels but still have a good weight to them. A nod to slightly the chunkier style that's very IN at the moment, without going full ugly trainer trend.
If you're more of the 'go big or go home' persuasion when it comes to your kicks, these softened leather trainers with the archival Gucci print definitely won't go unnoticed.
7| Saint Laurent
These smooth leather trainers are as minimal as you can get and come in an eye-catching shade of off-white. A staple that will go with chinos, light jeans and shorts alike.
8| Axel Arigato
Made from Italian leather, suede and mesh, this new release from the sleek Japanese brand is a nod to the trail runner hiking shoe trend without looking too much like you're scaling Kilimanjaro.
