6 Classic White Sneakers for Women in 2024

If you’re considering a new pair of white sneakers to add to your wardrobe this season, I rounded up our six favorites for 2024.

You can wear classic white sneakers with everything, from jeans and shorts to dresses and skirts. 

The recommendations below start at $60 and are all under $200.

There is something for everyone. Whether you want something basic or sporty or need some height or extra support, I’ve got you covered.

6 Classic White Sneakers for Women

Tips for Wearing White Sneakers:

Consider these ‘outfit sneakers.’  They serve a different purpose than your gym sneakers. These sneakers are designed to elevate your style, not your workout. 

You want them to be all white or almost all white. We want a fresh and crisp look; a few neutral details are fine, too.

Go for a slim and low profile. Start with a slender, lightweight pair. Avoid anything too clunky or heavy if you want for a go-with-everything option. Look for a silhouette that skims or shows your ankle. This will give you more versatility in how you wear them.

Have fun with them! These outfit sneakers are incredibly versatile. They can be paired with athletic wear for a sporty look, or you can push the boundaries and wear them with printed skirts and silky dresses. They even work with a more formal outfit like a suit. The possibilities are endless, so don’t be afraid to experiment. 

Below are our six sneakers in a variety of styles and price points. 

They are all great, it’s just a matter of which one you like best. 

Superga Women’s 2750 Cotu Classic Sneaker

The Princess of Wales, known for her stunning wardrobe mix of couture and high-street brands, frequently wears Superga’s 

Royals, they’re just like us!

These are cute, comfortable, and affordable every day sneakers. 

Available at Zappos.

These Cole Haan leather tennis sneakers have been a Reader Favorite for YEARS.

They are the perfect white sneaker for the season: comfortable, polished, slim, and at a fantastic price for the quality.

Vionic Winner Leather Sneaker

Vionic is known for footwear that combines comfort with updated styles, and these leather lace-up sneakers get rave reviews from customers for their instant comfort and help with high arches.

Keds Women’s Triple Kick Canvas Sneaker

Next up, Keds, one of the original white “outfit” sneakers.

Veja Women’s Esplar Leather Low-Top Sneakers

The Veja’s Esplar Low Top Sneakers are apersonal favorite.

These are the sneakers I turn to almost everyday.

And while that are not a pure white, they are neutral enough to work with my what’s in my closet.

And they sell out quickly.

The most inventory is currently on Amazon.

I also like this almost all white option here.

TRETORN Women’s Nylite Plus Canvas Sneakers

Finally, this is my most recent sneaker purchase for spring, and I love them.

I had these in my cart on Tuckernuck, but they sold out in my size before I could check out. A quick search led me to Amazon, which has them fully stocked, with half sizes and wide options for the same price. 

These canvas sneakers are comfortable and versatile, making them a perfect match for casual outfits like shorts, skorts, and cotton dresses. Perfect for whatever you have planned this summer.

Available on Amazon.

I purchased a pair of Nine West Layna's last year. Every time I wear them someone says, "Boy, those are white shoes!" I have become very self-conscious about wearing them now.

Megan Kristel

Saturday 20th of April 2024

Those are cute shoes, ignore comments for people who have no idea what they are talking about. I can't imagine not wearing something I liked because someone might say something stupid.

I wore white Keds - canvas and leather - for many years, but as I got older, found that I needed more arch support (very high insteps !). About 5 years ago, I bought a pair of navy Supergas, but found that the seam hit me on an odd place, and rubbed skin off my little toes at the cuticle line. Them I tried the Sperry Crest Vibe - they are extremely comfortable on me, and I loved the look of the leather laces and how they allowed me to slip on and go. I’ve had several pairs in navy, but the white is more of an off-white, so back to the drawing board! After you and several other sites recommended the Vionics Winny, and in anticipation of an upcoming trip to Ireland, I ordered them several weeks ago. I like the fit, and the insoles have incredible arch support; what isn’t obvious in the pictures, or mentioned in the website’s description, is that the trim is a somewhat shiny, croc embossed leather. I don’t love it, but not sure anyone will notice except me!

Megan Kristel

Actually, the croc detail is one of the things I like most about them! I should have mentioned that.

Love this! I just bought a pair of Vionic white canvas sneakers, and LOVE them! I went out on a limb buying shoes online, because normally I MUST try them on or count on having to return them. The Vionic fit right out of the box, no breaking in period whatsoever! I have the Winny leather style in my wish list when it starts getting cooler again. Texas is too hot for leather in the summer! Thank you for all you do Megan!

Thank you for looking at vionic! They are the only shoe brand I can wear with consistency. Even other “comfort” brands don’t work for me. Support first, then cushion! I bought the Winny sneaker in white several days before your post. They have been very comfortable for what is usually a very flat shoe. I would recommend it to anyone who struggles. I hope you continue to peek at vionic. Thank you!

I’ve had the Supergas for a couple of years and like them, but wanted a leather pair for a more polished look at work. Just bought a leather pair of Cole Haans and can’t wait to wear them!

Megan, Just saw this post on the white sneaker, I always think they look so cute on others. My issue, I always think they make my feet look big??? Not sure they are appropriate for a Mid 60's??

What are your thoughts on the black (Ecco, similar to Cole Han) or slip on nude ( Soffit), How would you style those?

I would greatly appreciate your input! Love reading your posts!

I am a fan of Sperry sneakers, white leather uppers and very comfortable. They also have a canvas sneaker in Navy Blue and Green.

If you’re in the U.K. I can recommend the Arwen leather trainers from Hobbs.co.uk!

What are your thoughts on the Everlane Forever Sneaker - I've been impressed with their jeans and their committment to the environment. At $98.00 CAD, they are a great price point. Do they fit the brief?

Megan Kristel

Thursday 28th of April 2022

I've never tried them but I've been happy with most of the items I've purchased from Everlane in the past. :)

I love the white sneakers and I have t to r Nike pair. They are comfortable and staple for me in late spring and thru the summer. .

Thanks for this round up! I bought the Cole Haan Grand Courts last year and love them. I'm also loving the Vionic Paisley and the Naturalizer Macayla this year :) But when I just want a clean, all white sneaker, the Grand Courts are my go to! I am considering picking up a pair of the Vejas as well...I will have quite the sneaker collection! How many pairs of sneakers are too many? *Asking for a friend ;)*

Megan Kristel

Thursday 28th of April 2022

Lol. I'm not the right person to ask, I have way too many white sneakers but I do wear them. I have both the Grand Courts and the Vejas, love the both!

Great post! I bought white Vionics with an animal print accent last summer and LOVE THEM!

I love the white sneakers and I’m excited to start wearing them this year. Thanks for this!!

I have very narrow feet. I found cute and reasonably priced sneakers from Naturalizer. They are the “Jane” series. I bought 3 pairs at about $70 each. Shoes are tough for folks with narrow feet, especially sneakers. Nordstrom and Zappos carry naturalizer brand.

The timing of your article is funny...I just pulled out my new all white classic Keds out of the closet and have been wearing them almost non-stop! And I think they are so darn cute!!!! And comf! They make me feel young again!!! I've had them almost 2 years and didn't wear them because I didn't want to get them dirty...LOL...but now I'm hooked. :)

I love a white sneaker for spring and summer, but I find most brands only offer medium width. Taos has been good for my difficult feet, but I’d love any other options you know. Wide width shoes that are cute are sooooo hard to find.

Terri Camp

Love this blog! For white sneakers, I'm not sure why you subbed the Cole Haan man made for the Mindi Lace Up? Unless your reader wants to go Vegan, the Mindi Lace Up is a better shoe. . . IMHO. ;)

I purchased the Mindi when you highlighted them in your Perfect White Sneaker post and they have become my go to. Leather instead of plastic for starters. They clean up great! Comfy! Cute! Low profile. Lightweight. In fact, I just purchased 2 more pair because my original ones are beginning to show sole wear and I don't ever want to be without these shoes again! I think they are superior to the classic Cole Haan.

Megan Kristel

Tuesday 11th of May 2021

It's just another option. I have both. The Midi Lace Up has a tan detail, while the tennis shoe is all white. Both are nice quality and comfortable and yes, some readers like seeing none leather alternatives.

My question is always, what socks do you wear with these? None? Funky? I have yet to find no show socks that don't actually show with this lower cut, and don't create a rub between the shoe and my heel (= blisters). Maybe a post on socks is warranted ? :)

@Julie, Vans do the absolute best trainer socks, I bought them in the U.K. but there’s a Vans.com website. Worth every penny and I hand wash them to preserve the gel back of the heel. Had them for more than a year!!

Which ones are the ones in the picture on this page?

Hey Megan, that is just a stock photo. Unfortunately I'm not sure what brand they are. This is why I don't love using stock images, so we are slowly replacing them with our own photography :)

I wear a pair of Lacoste all white tennis shoes & I love them. I must say,they are a little heavy,but so classy.

Julia

I purchased some last season which were way ore expensive than I would usually pay. I like them but still haven’t mastered the art of keeping them clean.

Megan Kristel

Wednesday 22nd of May 2019

That can be a pain in the neck. Depending on the material, I've been known to take a magic eraser to a pair to quickly clean them up.

Hi Megan

I was inspired to put my black Nike's away for the summer and switch to some all white sneakers. I tried on everyone I could find at DSW. Purchased the Adidas Grand Court for $59.00, they are so cushy like walking on clouds. Thanks for the inspiration.

Megan Kristel

Thanks so much for coming back to tell me! :)

You are so right about the boot cut with sneakers looking frumpy. I wore Keds with boot cut jeans around Savannah out of necessity. I did not like the photos of me in that combo at all. Even a sandal with a little heel would be preferable.

Kathy

Friday 17th of May 2019

I have a pear shape and heavy legs. Bootcut jeans are the best fit for me. Straights are too tight through the lower leg. I’m 5’9” with a 34” inseam. Heels are not an option as I have had knee replacement surgery and anything over 1-1 1/2” throws my knee off balance. What footwear do you suggest? Thanks!

Connie

Friday 17th of May 2019

Is this a style saved for younger women? I will be 70 this summer and would like to wear them....at least, the more conservative Keds style.
