A Definitive Ranking of The Best White Sneakers To Buy, From Platform to Running

Let's be real, white sneakers are EVERYTHING. They're so versatile, like, you can wear a pair with your flowy maxi dress but also with your faded mom jeans. Now that the weather's nicer, it's the prime time to wear white sneakers. And, you can never have enough pairs! I mean, you need one for working out, running errands, and getting a little more height. 

Below is a list of best white sneakers that you need to cop, like, ASAP. These are the best of the best. A few of the classics did make an appearance on here. Trust me when I say that these shoes are the ultimate must-haves.

  1. 1. The Energized Runner

    Adidas Ultraboost 19 Running Shoes, Finish Line, $180; shop now

    There's a reason why these running shoes sell out every time — the Adidas Ultraboost is comfortable and reliable. As runners give more energy, the more they get from the responsive cushioning while the knit provides ultralight comfort. These shoes wouldn't be called the Ultraboost for no reason!

  2. 2. The Legendary Icon

    Air Force 1 '07, Nike, $90; shop now

    Originally basketball shoes, the Nike Air Force Ones became a sensation throughout the world. The Nike Air Force 1 '07 is a contemporary version with a combination of the classic style and up-to-date features. These shoes have been a staple for the last decade because they make the perfect everyday shoes. Hey, they were my go-to shoes when I was in grade school, so I can tell you that they last awhile. 

  3. 3. The Classic Comeback

    Classic Leather, Reebok, $75; shop now

    According to my mom, the Reebok Classic Leather was the hype in the 80s and 90s. They were her favorite shoes to wear to her aerobics classes! Fast forward to the past few years, these classics are making a comeback. 

  4. 4. The Forrest Gump Kicks

    Nike Classic Cortez, Nike, $70; shop now

    The Nike Classic Cortez was a hit in the 70s — and the iconic pair is back in style! For the longest time, I called these shoes the Forrest Gumps because he's literally the first thought I have about the Cortez. As someone who does own a pair, they are are so comfy! I love wearing them with high-waisted jeans and a plain white t-shirt. 

  5. 5. The Fashion-Forward Chunk

    2790 ACOTW, Superga, $80; shop now

    If you need a little bit of height, the Superga 2790 ACOTW is the one for you! These platform sneakers are exactly what you need to add to your summer wardrobe. They'll go with summer dresses and high-waisted denim shorts.

  6. 6. The Playful Heart

    Comme des Garçons PLAY Chuck 70, Converse, $135; shop now

    The Converse x Comme des Garçons PLAY Chuck 70 is a luxurious take on the classic low-top Chuck Taylors. The collaboration has been one of the favorites by fans. With CDG's popular graphic, these shoes are far from just plain and simple.

  7. 7. The Tennis Classic

    Stan Smith Shoe, Adidas, $80; shop now

    This is another favorite of mine. The Adidas Stan Smith is a holy grail. These tennis shoes have been around since 1973. They have yet to go out of style, just like any classic pair of sneakers. 

Hey, white sneakers will always be the baddies of the shoe world. They're so slick and versatile. You can never go wrong with any pair!
