Very rarely am I caught not wearing a pair of white sneakers. Yes, I have plenty of boots and flats in my collection, but sneakers will always be my go-to if I’m in a rush to get out the door. And while new and trendy sneakers will always have a piece of my heart, the real superheroes in my collection are my trusty white sneakers. I have several that I wear on a near-constant rotation, and I obsess over finding a new pair once one of them bites the dust. With nearly two decades of expert sneaker shopping under my belt, I’ve rounded up a few of the coolest and best white sneakers for you to get your hands on in 2023. 

Start at the beginning: What are you looking for in a white sneaker? If it’s a canvas, retro-inspired pick that you’re after, consider brands like Superga or Converse. If you’re on the hunt for the best white athletic sneaker, brands like Nike or Adidas might be a better fit. If you’re on the hunt for the best designer sneakers that happen to come in a shade of white, consider brands like Golden Goose or Alexander McQueen. If you want to add some oomph to an otherwise simple outfit, a white chunky sneaker may be the best one for you. Finally, if you just need to find the best slip-on sneakers that you can get in and out of with ease, iconic brands like Vans have you (er, your feet) covered. 

Here’s to securing the most versatile shoe in your collection, bar none. (And before they arrive, make sure you know how to clean your white sneakers!)
