8 Great Classic White Sneakers for Women
Tips for Wearing White Sneakers:
Consider these “dress” sneakers. Don’t take them to the gym, and do not try to wear your gym sneakers in their place. They are two different things.
You want them to be all white. We want these to look fresh and crisp.
Look for a slim and low profile. Avoid anything too clunky or heavy. Instead, you want these to feel light, so look for silhouette that skims your ankle.
Have fun with them! Pair them with printed skirts and silky dresses; you can wear them with jeans, a tee, and a blazer, and depending on your style, you can even wear them with a suit.
Below are our top eight sneakers, in a variety of styles and price points. They are all great, it’s just a matter of which one you like best.
The Original Nike Air Force 1
Nike Air Force 1, $100
I wouldn’t be a fashion writer if I didn’t talk about Nike Air Force 1’s, the original style that set off the street style trend that eventually influenced modern style.
These are heavy, with a high top style … everything I just told you to avoid.;)
I’m highlighting these because (1) if you want the real “fashion” option, these are it. And most importantly, (2) so you can be inspired by the original and make it work more practically with other options.
Like with these next pair of sneakers, also by Nike:
Nike Air Force 1 Shadow Sneaker
Nike Air Force 1 Shadow, $120
These have a lower profile so they are easier to wear with different bottoms. I love the extra details on the shoe, especially in the all white as they have dimension but aren’t in your face.
