There are a few wardrobe staples that transcend any personal aesthetic, and the classic white sneaker sits high on that list.

With popular picks ranging from the $50 cult-classic slip-on skate shoes from Vans to the high-fashion Alexander McQueen exaggerated sole sneakers, the white-on-white sneaker is a look that will forever be relevant.

Arguably considered one of the most versatile fashion pieces one could own, white sneakers come in a variety of designs, materials, brands and (most importantly) prices.

To prove just how passionate folks are about their crisp white kicks, a couple of our team members even gushed about why they are white sneaker-obsessed.

Alan Lewin, an In The Know video producer, noted that the forever-classic Nike Air Force 1s reign supreme, as they hold their shape during long city commutes.

“Air Force 1s are definite my fave because walking around in the city, you just wear through the soles of these thin shoes so fast — but the Air Force 1s got that platform!” he said.

Commerce editor and writer Ari Bines, meanwhile, mentioned that the FILA Disruptor II Premium “dad shoe” — as she adoringly calls it — is a “classic” in its own sense.

“Before quarantine, these were my go-to throw-on shoes when I wore anything tight, sporty and all black,” she said. “And even though there are whispers that these aren’t ‘cool’ anymore, I could care less.”

For those who prefer a more streamlined and sleek aesthetic, there’s my personal favorite: the Clae Bradley in triple white leather. It can be dressed down with jeans and a white tee or dressed up with a suit and still command attention — in the best way possible.
