    There's probably no shoe more popular this summer than the sneaker, in all its forms: From puffy dunks to performance trainers to colorful, patterned, printed plimsolls, the lace-up, rubber-soled shoe is one of the biggest trends of the season. But, if there's one from the bunch that has always been a shoe-rotation regular, it's the white sneaker.

    Wearing white sneaks right out of the box might feel like a dangerous thing (stay away, red-wine drinkers!), but we all know that a pristine pair is an impossible dream. Plus, they look way better scuffed up and stained (come hither, red-wine drinkers, and let's toast). Click through to see six styles that stick with the classic — without being too precious about things, either.
