Fellas, it’s no secret that a great pair of clean white sneakers will work some magic on any look. White sneakers are not only timeless, but are true essentials in any guy’s wardrobe. They can add that perfect pop to your look, and can be dressed up or dressed down with their versatility. With Memorial Day and summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to pick up a pair or two to last you through the season and maybe even after.
Our first pair on this list, from Vans, is ideal for any occasion. Errands, festival, or a weekend at the beach… you can simply slip off-white colored sneakers these on and go anywhere with them and they’ll look solid with any dressed down look.
The next pair on our list is a classic that has been making its way back into everyone’s spring and summer looks. With a gold accented tongue and side lettering and black stripes to compliment the clean white base, there’s nothing that matches the quality, comfort, and effortless style of an Adidas Original. These are great for days where you don’t exactly know what shoes you want to wear, whether it is a plain t-shirt or linen button-up shirt.
Our next pair, also by Adidas, is a modern take on the ever-so-popular Stan Smith sneaker. The Primeknit material takes a classic and ups the comfort level without compromising on style, making them an essential for those hot summer days. The cream bottom and hint of green will add the perfect pop of color to the rest of your look as well. If you don’t want an average white sneaker, these are for you.
Next, we have these casual canvas sneakers in an off-white color from the Vans + J. Crew collection. These are a perfect everyday sneaker that are a bit more dressed up than the other styles on our list. Specifically, this style has us thinking of a day along the boardwalks of Coney Island and the Jersey Shore, especially with the 90 degree weather we’ve been having in Manhattan recently. We suggest pairing these with a t-shirt or polo shirt and a bright colored short for the ultimate laid back look.
Last but certainly not least on our list is the classic Converse Chuck Taylor low top sneaker. In our opinion, these just scream summer and can be rocked by anyone. They can easily add a casual vibe to a more-dressed up look and can also compliment any bold and bright colors you may want to wear during the season. These kicks have stood the test of time and have never gone out of style. They’re pretty much the most versatile, easy to wear sneakers around for this time of year.
Of course, when it comes to the white sneaker, the options are seemingly endless. For this list, we just decided to stick with some classic styles with some modern flair for good measure. We can ensure these styles will pair with the rest of your wardrobe and will keep you looking fresh all summer long.
That’s all for now.
As always, stay dapper..
