Whether you’re wearing a floral dresses or cropped jeans, there’s only one shoe you need this spring: a white trainer.
The versatile shoe is making us praise the footwear gods, not least because it’s hella comfy (and we’ve well and truly fallen out of love with high heels).
From pure white chic to a flash of colour in every shade, there’s a trainer to suit all styles on the high street this season. We’ve rounded up nine of our favourites.
Veja V-10 Sneakers, VEJA, Net-A-Porter, £115
Ethical brand Veja is having a bit of a moment thanks to celeb fans like Meghan Markle. If you want to try them out, you can’t go wrong with the ‘V-10 sneaker’, crafted from white vegetable-tanned leather with a rubber sole that’s sustainably harvested from the Amazon Rainforest.
Stan Smith Trainers Core White Green, Adidas, Office, £74.99
Stan Smith shoes debuted in the ’70s and they’re not going anywhere. The classic Adidas tennis shoe features a silhouette of Stan Smith’s face on the tongue, plus the Adidas logo and the words ‘Stan Smith’ on the back. Buy with green details, or opt from a variety of colours, including pure white.
Nike Classic Cortez, Nike, £64.95
Also released in the ’70s, Nike’s original training shoe is the Stan Smith alternative for those chasing old-school vibes. If all-white isn’t your style, the shoes are also available with a tick in red or black.
Lane, Kurt Geiger London, £99
Fashionistas are guaranteed to fall for the Lane shoe by Kurt Geiger London, which has ice white uppers with the lightest of beige tongue and heel to add some subtle contrast.
Adidas Originals Continental 80, Adidas, £75.00
Judging by the fact these shoes were out of stock at several sports shops we searched, this style is very popular this season. We love the red and black accents for an ’80s pop, but the trainers also come in other colours for those unconvinced.
Sneakers With Transparent Sole, Zara, £25.99
You don’t need to opt for a big sports brand to enjoy the white trainer trend. This pair from Zara are cheaper than many of the others in this list, but thanks to the fun transparent sole, you won’t compromise on style.
Vernon Sneakers, Levi, £70.00
These trainers remind us of bowling shoes – in the best possible way. Team the retro style with your favourite jeans and prepare for the compliments to roll in.
White Comfycush Old Skool Trainers, Vans, £70
You can’t go wrong with these Vans: a wear-with-everything pair that’ll never steal the show from the rest of your outfit. Sometimes, less really is more.
White Leather-Look Metal Trim Lace Up Trainers, New Look, £17.99
And finally, if you’re incapable of keeping white trainers white for more than five minutes, this bargain pair from New Look may be for you. They’re more pump than trainer, meaning they’ll look less chunky with skirts.
