On the subject of pure enduring style, the white sneaker is infallible.
Some are simple canvas. A few hyper-designed. Others are minimally stitched to give them a look of clean artistry worthy of a museum case.
And yet the one thing that brings all these styles together is the season. There’s something about a fresh pair of white sneakers that’s essential when transitioning from cold to warm weather. Below, you’ll find our top picks for the white brights you should consider this spring and beyond.
