Here’s why we’re totally devoted to the classic white kick, and why you need to get yourself a new pair, stat:
You can wear them with nearly anything. They’re as at home with a floaty midi skirt and oversized knit as they are with leggings and a t-shirt. Any colour, any shape, anything goes. Dog walks… check! Shopping… check! Dinner with friends… check!
We love the Nike Court Royal AC as the all-rounder you’ll pull on again and again.
Not only can you wear your sneaks pretty much anywhere and always look good, you can do it comfortably too. Flat, sturdy and like a little cushion for your feet, they’ll never give you the grief that sometimes comes with heels.
For a take on a classic with a street-style edge, take a peek at the Adidas Original Haiwees for the ultimate in breathable, stretchy, joy-to-wear footwear.
Dressing appropriately for your age group can be a tricky subject. But like most of the wardrobe classics we love to shout about, a good pair of white trainers ticks the box wherever you fall on the age scale. With new designs always on the horizon and classic styles holding steady like they’ll never go out of date; you’ve got plenty to choose from.
New to white trainer life? Start with the basics: the Vans Era Trainers are slim, low-key and truly iconic. Techically off-white but go with everything so still count!
You might think that such a utilitarian item doesn’t give you much wiggle room for self-expression. Wrong! Simple and chic might be the order of the day, but there’s still room for a little flourish to make them yours.
For this, we love Geox, and in particular their Ottaya Breathable Leather Trainers with their little flash of bling.
