14 white trainers on the top of every fashion editor’s wishlist

Posted by for Fashion

White trainers are perennially desirable, the winning-touch to almost every outfit, they bring an easy sartorial win to you wardrobe. We’ve rounded up the best white trainers to shop now. 

The longevity and versatility of a great pair of box-fresh white trainers is unquestionable. A constant classic in every fashion insider’s wardrobe, the popularity of white trainers never falters. 

Trainers have seen a welcome comeback on the catwalk stage with dad trainers and chunky styles being the shoe du jour for street style favourites. From Balenciaga to Off-White, there’s no escaping this chunky-soled shoe. While the desirability of that particular style doesn’t seem to be wavering for the sneaker heads amongst us, they are sometimes more difficult to style with our every day looks. Which is why the classic white trainer will always take top spot. 

Oh so palatable, the design has no doubt helped us solve many a sartorial dilemma. When we’ve been stood in a heap of clothes, running late for work on a Monday morning, the timeless shoe is the easy go-to we can reach for that won’t overcomplicate our outfits (and an already stressful morning). 

Scroll through to see the best white trainers that will put a spring in your step…
