MY FAVORITE WHITE SNEAKERS – PLUS HOW I KEEP THEM CLEAN

CDG T-Shirt // MOUSSY Jeans // VEJA Leather Sneakers

When it comes to classic kicks, the white sneaker certainly tops the list. Chic, simple, and far more comfortable than a pair of heels, the versatile shoe is a go-to of mine with everything from a pair of denim to this striped shirtdress. They add instant freshness to any look – that is, if they’re clean. Keeping a pair of white sneakers looking spotless is no easy task. While I don’t mind so much when I see dirt on my canvas Supergas (I wear them so much that I’ve just succumbed to the fact that frequent replacements are just part of the deal), it’s the scuffs on my leather ones that irk me. Keeping a pair of leather kicks completely clean is impossible, but there’s one trick I’ve learned that seems to help: before I wear a new pair, I always spray them with this water/stain protector first. It’s a way to pretreat the leather and really does seem to extend the life of my white sneakers. Another quick trick: replace your laces. Switching out shoelaces is an instant refresher.

White sneakers require a little more commitment, yes, but that doesn’t make them any less essential to a wardrobe. Scroll through below to shop my favorite pairs.
