Finding the perfect pair of sneakers can be a daunting task for anyone, but the challenge becomes even harder when you’re a woman. 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 with the times and offering sneakers that women will actually wear. Having recently brought you some of the black footwear every woman should own, we’re now shining a light on the best white sneakers for women.
While there’s no questioning an all black sneaker’s place in any 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 dope options from classic sportswear brands such as Reebok and Nike, fashion powerhouses Prada and Maison Margiela, and hyped brands like OFF-WHITE and A-COLD-WALL*.

“The M2K Tekno is probably one of my favorite Nike silhouettes this year, and this iced-out pair is definitely the cleanest yet. Some would argue that it’s just a more expensive version of the Air Monarch’s, but IMO, this pair is much nicer. The details are great, and the mini Swoosh adds that extra touch. They also happen to be one of the comfiest pairs of sneakers I own.”

“This is an absolute grail of mine. ACW* has been one of my favorite brands for a minute, and this pair is one-of-a-kind. The classic Air Force silhouette paired with the ACW detail is just so good, man. I tried so hard to get a pair but had to take an L. SAMUEL ROSS PLEASE SORT ME OUT!”
“In my opinion, the COMME Des GARÇONS Play Converse is a must-have. These are so easy to match with any outfit and always look classy. I’d go with the larger heart design, because you know, why not?”

“This is one of my favorite releases of 2018, so far. Unfortunately, I couldn’t cop, even after solebox’s Elementary challenge. This is such a good pair to style up with different socks, and it looks so original and futuristic — I just love it.”

“This is a very nice, luxurious pair for the grown-up sneakerheads out there — the quality and detail on these are bomb, and the mixed mesh and rubber materials make the shoe comfy and steezy at the same time.”

“Again, another pair for the maturer sneakerhead, elevating your street style with a more high-fashion vibe. I’m a big fan of the laceless construction, and the mesh detail is really nice, too. They boast a cozy mesh upper with a velcro front strap, which makes them super comfortable and easy to slip on.”

“This classic Blazer is such an easy kick to throw on, as it’s simple and goes with pretty much everything. The leather details give it a more luxurious look and feel, and they’re also super cheap, making these the perfect white beaters.”
“I just came across these Margiela sneakers, and they are actually FIRE. This is a really nice chunky silhouette, and actually not too badly priced for Margiela. I would describe these as a high-fashion version of RiRi’s Fenty Cleated Creepers, which I still love BTW.”
“I’m a big fan of this silhouette and I think it’s a nice alternative to the YEEZY Calabasas. They’re clean, simple, and reasonably priced.”

“This pair needs no introduction. They’re such a classic and one of my favorite silhouettes of all time.”
“What kind of round-up would this be without a pair of white Converse? This lifted version stays on trend with the chunky sneaker wave while remaining a perfect pair for summer.”
“This is a very nice low-key pair from Prada, which get their flex-worthy detailing thanks to the signature red tag. Keeping up with the dadcore-sneaker trend, this pair will give your ’fit that high-fashion feel.”
“This pair from Alexander McQueen is an oldie but a goodie. They’re perfect for smarter occasions, like a dinner with friends or casual evening drinks. and also a great pair for us girls who need a few extra inches in our lives.”

“Last but not least, I had to include an OFF-WHITE pair. However, I didn’t want to stress you with a resell pair of Air Jordan 1s, and opted for something slightly cheaper. This low-top is a clean, low-key option from Virgil’s brand. But please, if you’re gonna cop, CUT THE DAMN TAG OFF!”
