Ah white trainers, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
Seriously, I can't even remember what I used to wear on my feet before I realised the versatility (and comfortability) of the classic white kick. They really are one of the hardest working pieces in any wardrobe.
Wear them with a midi dress for a sports-luxe edge, team with a slouchy trouser suit for a high-low contrast, slip on with your jeans for a trip to the shops or add them to your go-to leggings and a t-shirt walking outfit. No matter what the outfit, you really can't go wrong with a pair of white kicks. Plus, in addition to looking polished, they'll also keep your feet comfortable as hell. What more could you want from a pair of shoes?
So, whether you're buying your first ever pair of the fashion MVP or replacing your much-loved (and now worn-out) favourites, we've scanned the interwebs to bring you the very best womens white trainers to shop right now.
1. Alexander McQueen
Ladies runway platform sneakers, £390, Alexander McQueen BUY NOW
Of course, no round up of white trainers is complete without the cult-status McQueens. If you practically live in your kicks, then investing in a designer pair is totally justifiable. Despite making their runway debut back in 2015, according to fashion search engine, Lyst, these bad bois are the most-searched white trainer of 2019, showing that they have real staying power season after season.
Ace watersnake-trimmed embroidered leather sneakers, £450, Gucci BUY NOW
While we're on the topic of iconic designer trainers, the Gucci Ace sneaks also deserve an honourable mention. For years these have been the go-to off-duty style of the fashion elite, but the high quality design finish means that we would also totally wear these for smarter occasions too. The reflective panels and intricate embroidery detailing instantly take these shoes from 'trainers' to 'statement shoes'.
3. Adidas Originals
Continental 80 white trainers, £75, Adidas Originals BUY NOW
Now, for those of you who can't quite afford to drop a few hundred pounds on a pair of kicks right now, these Adidas beauties look just every bit as edgy as the designer counterparts thanks to that contrast stripe detailing down the side. They're part of the 'Originals' collection, which means they're the brands heritage styles, and are brought back because they never go out of style.
V-1o leather sneakers, £115, Veja BUY NOW
There's a reason Fashion Editors are obsessed with Veja trainers. Not only are they vegan, they're also affordable (as far as must-have designer pieces go, anyway) and a slightly different silhouette from the high street iterations. Plus, they're available in a tonne of cool colourways, making the sneakers feel even more personalised.
5. Golden Goose
Superstar distressed leather sneakers, £340, Golden Goose BUY NOW
If you're after a slightly more ~distressed~ trainer, look no further than Golden Goose - fashion's favourite lived-in brand. Whether it's glitter details or shimmery metallic stars, there's nothing 'ordinary' or 'bland' about a Golden Goose trainer.
Lauren Leather Sneakers, £350, Chloé BUY NOW
Now, these are definitely on the spennier side but, I have to say, they're worth every penny. Aside from being an utterly timeless style, seeing you through many seasons to come, the cute scalloped trim above the sole gives these classics a sweet feminine touch. Safe to say, we're investing in this beaut buy and feeling guilt-free about doing it.
