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. 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 Rhianna Matthews, our selection includes white sneakers for women from a range of classic sportswear brands such as Salomon, New Balance, and Nike, as well as luxury labels like Balenciaga and Off-White™.
Find out what Rhianna has to say about all the best white sneakers for women below.
Salomon Limited Edition XT-6 ADV Sneakers
“Such a beautiful pair. Everyone will benefit from a pair of Salomon’s in their wardrobe, and this iced-out colorway is a great match for the season.”
“If Off-White™ is your brand of choice, I’d recommend this low top Arrow.”
Nike Air Jordan 1 Low
“AJ1 Lows are the perfect summer shoe. This pair in all white is super clean and wearable and the low top makes them easy to slip on and off.”
Balenciaga Track 2
“Balenciaga’s Track 2 sneaker is a great choice if you’re into more contemporary silhouettes. Hard to take your eyes off.”
Joshua Sanders Smiley
“Add a little character to your look with Joshua Sanders’ playful sneaker. You’ll be sure to keep smiles on faces with these.”
“Ok, so these aren’t strictly white, but they’re too good not to include. ROA kills it with its Neal sneaker/boot hybrid — a more rugged addition for your collection.”
Loewe Ballet Runner
“This pair is for the luxury fan. Loewe’s tonal leather and appliqué ballet runners are a fit for your more elegant and elevated looks.”
“A great staple for your sneaker closet. ASICS’ GEL-1090 will add that sportier look to your rotation if that’s what you’re looking for.”
Golden Goose Pure Star
“For the more feminine sneakerhead — Golden Goose’s classic low top with a subtle hint of sparkle.”
COMME des GARCONS x Nike Shox TL
“If the OG Nike Shox TL is too plain for you, then you can’t go wrong with COMME des GARÇONS’ blinged-out version.”
The Nike Cortez is the model that made Nike the company it is today if Phil Knight’s stories in Shoe Dog are to be trusted (which, let’s be real — why wouldn’t they be?). The classic leather upper, with a contrasting Swoosh and EVA foam sole unit, makes this simple design perfect for the warm summer months.
Nike Blazer Mid ’77
“Nike Blazers are a real kick of nostalgia and wearing them definitely makes you feel some kind of way. I recommend this fresh black and white pair because you can’t really go wrong with a contrast Swoosh and you’ll be able to wear them to and with anything.”
