With new spring fashion comes new spring shoes, and nothing says warmer weather quite like a classic white sneaker. This timeless shoe has been a wardrobe requirement for literally decades, and we’re ready to shop the newest silhouettes and styles, along with timeless classics, to upgrade our spring style just in time for spring break.
The lasting popularity of a classic white sneaker is understated — there’s something unfailing about the shoe style that works with any kind of casual outfit. Whether you’re looking for something to wear with a new spring dress, replace an athletic sneaker that’s worn out or you’re looking to emulate looks worn by royals Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle (both their favorite white sneakers have made it onto our list), the perfect white sneaker for you is out there.
This season, we’re excited by the diversity of trends in the simple shoe. White sneakers aren’t just your basic Converse Chuck Taylor anymore (though that is also on our list of faves). Our deep dive into this season’s white sneakers revealed everything from old school lace ups and high top canvas sneakers to splurges from popular designers such as Golden Goose. Plus, we even has an exclusive deal for ET readers on a stunning pair of genuine leather sneaks.
