The best men’s white sneakers serve as blank canvases on which to paint your personal style, whether it leans toward streetwear, smart casual, preppy or something totally unique. That’s because the best white sneakers for men can be worn with just about anything, whether that’s a pair of cuffed blue jeans or dressy wool pants. The key is finding the right white sneakers to suit the ‘fit.

Most styles available today can trace their roots back to athletic performance. Some styles we love today, at one point in time, were considered cutting-edge technology for tennis, running, basketball or skateboarding. Sports technology has advanced immeasurably, making these shoes less suitable for sports, but the fashion world has adopted them as everyday footwear; some even amassing cult followings behind them.

And while there’s a decent chance you already have a pair of white sneakers in your closet, it can’t hurt to add one (or two) more pairs. That’s because there’s a white sneaker for every occasion. And if you’re worried about keeping your new kicks clean, we’ve even got a guide to cleaning white sneakers like a true sneakerhead.

Read on for our top picks for the best white sneakers for men.

  

1. Nike Air Force 1 ‘07

LEGENDARY BASKETBALL SHOE

When the first version of this iconic sneaker, designed by Bruce Kilgore, dropped in 1982, it was the first basketball shoe to include Nike Air technology in the sole, making it more comfortable. Today, it’s one of the most identifiable silhouettes.

2. Common Projects Original Achilles Leather White Sneakers

THE DEFINITIVE MINIMAL SNEAKER

The granddaddy of the minimal sneaker trend, the Common Projects Achilles is still going strong ever since its introduction in 2004. Overrated? A new classic? That’s for you to decide. But these crisp white shoes are unlikely to go anywhere anytime soon.

7. Reebok Club C 85 Men’s Shoes

BEST FOR SUMMER

The Vans Authentic Sneaker is synonymous with the Southern California lifestyle and is regarded as one of the pioneers of skateboarding shoes. Today, the Authentic serves a much wider audience as the go-to white sneaker for summer.

9. Converse Jack Purcell White Sneaker

OLD SCHOOL PREPPY SNEAKER

10. Filling Pieces Low Top Ripple Nappa White Sneaker

UNIQUE SILHOUETTE

Most minimal white leather sneakers take their design cues from the Common Projects Achilles, but the Filling Pieces Low Top Ripple Nappa White Sneaker has a decidedly sportier design, while still maintaining a minimal silhouette.

11. On Cloud 5

THE UPGRADED RUNNING SHOE

In the already crowded running shoe market, ON has managed to stand out despite their confusingly short name (it’s just ON). That’s because their stand-out CloudTec cushioning makes them ideal for all-day comfort, whether you’re running or just walking around.

12. HOKA Clifton 8

THE CULT-BELOVED SNEAKER

13. Chuck 70 Vintage Canvas

UDPATED ICON

Yes, we’ve already included Converse Chuck Taylor high tops. So why are we including them again?  Built to 1970s specifications, the Chuck 70 is basically a different shoe, with a more structured and supportive shape and upgraded canvas.

14. Greats Royale White Sneakers

THE DESIGNER DISRUPTOR

Greats’ Royale sneaker is a huge player from a small collection of the revolutionary Brooklyn-based brand. The idea was simple: make a sneaker with the same materials in the same factories as couture designers, except sell it for a fraction of the cost.

20. Nike Blazer Mid ‘77 Vintage

BEST HIGH-TOP SNEAKER

If you’re the type of person who is used to simple silhouettes like Converse or Vans, Blazers are a low-key upgrade that won’t mean straying too far from your comfort zone.

22. Vans Canvas Old Skool

THE RETURNING CHAMP

For a slightly more supportive silhouette than the Vans Authentic or slip-on, pick up the Old Skool. It’s a minimalist canvas style that can be worn with pretty much anything.

23. Nike Air Max ‘90 White Sneaker

BEST FOR JOGGER PANTS

Though many Air Max models exist, the Air Max ‘90 white sneaker is by far the most iconic and one of the most sought after. Considered Nike’s second signature sneaker (only to the Air Force 1), this early ‘00s reissue brings back the roots of Nike running with the waffle sole design and Max Air cushioning in the heel.
