While trainers get their fair share of fashion love, there's one from the bunch that stands the test of time as a shoe-rotation regular: the white trainer. From retro high-topped dunks to luxe-material performance trainers, this classic rubber-soled kick is one of the most enduring footwear trends to date.
Sporting white trainers fresh from the box may feel like a dangerous endeavour but keeping a new pair pristine is an impossible dream. Besides, any good sneaker will look way better scuffed up with an audacious story to tell of its travels. Click through to see all the irresistible styles of white “tennies” we love along with our best picks across every category — all of which are meant for walkin' and wearin' in.
