White sneakers are another absolute essential for any season but especially the summer. They look great with basically anything and fit in with a huge number of different aesthetics. Much like anything else, white sneakers can either be very cheap or very expensive depending on the quality and the look. Below, in my opinion, are the best white sneakers for men in 2016, with options for people with any budget.
1. Vans Old Skool
The Vans Old Skool is an immensely popular sneaker because it looks great and its very cheap. Additionally, they are very well made for their price due to Vans’ roots in skating. These, unlike some other white sneakers, will look great beat up. However, if you don’t like beat shoes then the canvas will be very difficult to clean.
2. Adidas Stan Smith
The Adidas Stan Smith is an absolute classic. The clean silhouette and great quality to price ratio has made this shoe a favorite among the masses. This shoe being leather, it will be easy to clean when it starts to get beat. Another advantage to this shoe is that it is also quite cheap.
3. Converse Chuck 2
This is the perfect white shoe for those who want something that isn’t low profile. Chuck Taylors are an absolute classic that has only been improved by this new iteration. They have been made more comfortable by the lunarlon sole and they have a cleaner look overall. Also, considering their price, the quality is solid.
4. Adidas x Raf Simons Stan Smith
This is essentially the same as the original Stan Smith in the way it looks, but the quality is a lot better due to the involvement of designer Raf Simons. These are for people who want the look of the Stan Smith but can afford that extra quality.
5. Common Projects Achilles Low
The common projects Achilles low is probably the best all white sneaker out there. The quality is amazing, they look amazing, and they are made with high quality leather in Italy. For more information, look at our previous article on common projects.
