Let’s get this straight first: we have a thing for white trainers. Comfy, crisp white pair of shoes that are equally casual and sleek. You like the sounds of it, don’t you?
No, seriously; white trainers have it all – they are comfortable and stylish. They are literally the most wearable pair of shoes you can have in your wardrobe that fit all the boxes when it comes to style and comfort.
White trainers are a true wardrobe multitasker.
You can wear white sneakers with everything from denim to dresses, for all kinds of events. Especially these not too sporty, not too formal, fashionable models we’ve been seeing everywhere.
Here are the best white vegan trainers we absolutely love atm, and you will probably too.
