If you go white, you are going right

White Sneakers (aka tennis shoes) are the denim equivalent in footwear. Everyone owns one yet most people don’t know how to pull them off. “Sneakers look good with any casual outfit and your colour choice and how you care for them will have a big impact on whether you’ll look sharp, or just… blah” writes celebrity menswear stylist, Ashley Weston. “If you’re reticent about white sneakers, I get it. My clients are a little freaked out by them in the beginning, too. But the reason I prefer white is they look super sharp and literally go with everything you’d wear casually. A pair of white sneakers instantly elevates an outfit to be a little sharper than it would be with other casual shoes. In my book, that’s a good thing”. “Dirty or worn out shoes are a major turn off. Spend 30 seconds and take wet cloth or a Magic Eraser sponge and give your shoes a quick wipe down” she writes on the importance of cleanliness. “A little effort goes a long way and will keep your shoes looking good for much longer” she writes. Pick one of our favourite white sneakers for a very impressive, lighthearted summer of style.
