The best women's white trainers perfectly toe the line (pardon the pun) between comfortable, chic and versatile.

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 t-shirt walking outfit. No matter what the outfit, you really can't go wrong with a pair of white kicks.

So, whether you're buying your first ever pair of shoe-drobe MVPs or replacing your much-loved (and now worn-out) favourites, we've scanned the interwebs to bring you the very best women's white trainers to shop right now. From classic designer and fashion white trainers, to affordable high street options - we've got a pair for you.

If you don't find what you're looking for here, be sure to check out our edit of the best fashion trainers too.

1. Alexander McQueen

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 were the most-searched white trainer of 2019, showing that they have real staying power season after season.

2. Veja

There's a reason Fashion Editors are still obsessed with Veja trainers. Not only do they offer vegan options, they're also affordable (as far as must-have designer pieces go, anyway) and have a slightly different silhouette to other high street iterations. Plus, they're available in a tonne of cool colourways, making the sneakers feel even more personalised.

3. Adidas

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.

4. AllSaints

For those obsessed with the chunky trainer trend, this All Saints style offers the versatility of a regular white trainer, fused with the fashion-forward edge of subtle gold designer-like detailing. Team with jeans and an oversized blazer and you'll be looking fre$h af.

5. Nike

Nike is one of the coolest brands on the high street, fusing stylish designs with affordable price points. But with an ultra-sleek, minimalist finish, these brand favourites look about a million bucks.

6. Golden Goose

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.

7. Gucci

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'.


For those seeking a more 'streetwear' pair of trainers, look no further than this textured Puma pair. The perforated mesh combined with the contrasting neutral colour panels and trippy sole add instant swagger to your weekend outfits.

9. Axel Arigato

You might not have heard of Axel Arigato before but their simple, sleek white leather trainers are so classic, they're destined to become a fave.

10. Chlo茅

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.

11. Lacoste

Inject a little je ne sias quoi into your lewk but slipping on a pair these quintessentially French Lacoste trainers.

12. Geox

Elevate the classic white trainer by opting for a style with metallic details like this Geox pair - note the contrasting zip hardware and silver heel. Oh, and this brand is also dedicated to perfecting the art of 'breathable technology', which means you say wave goodbye to sweaty sneaker feet.

13. Reebok

If you prefer your trainers with a little bit of nostalgia, check out Reebok's new Legacy Club C style, complete with retro '80s colourways and funky contrasting soles.
