22 Pairs of Chic White Sneakers for Fall

When my Vejas died,  I've been without a low profile everyday white sneaker for 8 months now because I wanted to wait until I found the perfect replacement. I've been looking for a unique, stylish shoe, that you can actually walk in. I've found that most of these white leather sneakers have no cushiony insoles. I walk hours in my shoes so I need them to actually be functional, comfortable  and stylish. White sneakers have been on trend for the last few years as an every day shoe and to wear with dresses as long as they are a low profile leather one. But be sure to keep them clean, I have a shoe cleaning kit. I bought 4 sneakers from this list and returned 3, find out which one. 

The key sneaker trends for 2023 are retro style sneakers, think soccer style sneakers and minimalist looks that don't have very heavy soles.  Adidas is the sneaker brand of the year, Sambas are super popular and super trendy right now as the "it" sneakers of the year. Coming in second place are the yellow Onitsuka Tiger shoes which Uma wears in Kill Bill if you're a Tarantino fan. Third popular sneaker are the New Balance 327 which are also selling out everywhere but they still resemble a dad style sneaker to me.  I really wanted a New Balance 327 in white  as I just loved the unique curve of the side of the sole. But I was worried they would get dirty easily and then thought they would be too bulky for dressy outfits. The Sea Salt color was my next fave but I'm currently rocking a black sneaker so I wanted a solid white one. 

On Cloud is a brand known for its sustainability as a forward-thinking activewear brand. Cloud 5 Coast has an antimicrobial foot bed allows for barefoot wear, so you can leave the socks at home. Offers an easy step-in and kick-down heel. Reinforced with a no-slip heel. They have little pods on the sole that compress with each step to absorb impact and in their words feel like a cloud. 

Allbirds Wool Piper Woven SweetFoam midsole is made with sugarcane-based green EVA. Shoe laces are  made from recycled plastic bottles, and has a castor bean oil-based insole foam. Shoes can be washed in the washing machine, although I wonder if you have to reshape the toe box since it's wool? Allbirds was founded by a New Zealand soccer player who thought shoes could be minimalist in design and not be made out of plastic. You can find lots of articles that say that Allbirds is the shoe of choice in Silicon Valley and Obama wears them. Free return shipping. I wonder if wool would be hot in the summer? They also have other shoes in their Tree line made from plants instead of wool.

Tory Burch Hank Sneaker from last season so only available in a few sizes. 

The Hoff Brand - Mockingbird With its gray plumage, white underbelly and long tail, the Mockingbird is striking. The bird's feathers have a subtle sheen that catches the light and shimmers with a soft gray hue. Transparent mesh on the sides. Hoff is a brand founded in Spain in 2016. Free shipping and free return shipping. 

Nike DayBreak Retro Sneaker  in a mixture of White, Pale Ivory, and Light Smoke Grey so overall maybe it look more like a pale yellow


Adidas Grand Court

Adidas Samba (I know not white but such a unique color) 

Sam Edelman - Ethyl 

Kizik - Irvine Slip on shoes that you don't have to tie or wiggle into, you put them on hands-free. Extra padding in the springback heel, dual underfoot cushioning, and a stretch canvas upper. Free shipping and free return shipping. 

Cole Haan - GrandPro Tennis

Naturalizer - Morrison Comfortable comes in other heel colors

Gold Details

Olukai Ha'upu has a drop in heel so you can step in the sneakers. 

Calla -Star Grain This is a brand special made for bunion suffers so the shoes are a little wider. This includes a removable cushioned and arch supported insole, fully lined toe box (no seams) and wider toe box, plus lace ups so you can adjust the forefoot width if needed.  

Ecco Street Lite Retro


If you want to lust over some designer sneakers, check out these pricey shoes. I would love a Khaite Walker but they are a little bit out of my price range. The Jeffrey Campbell Keys Sneaker on the right is a pretty good dupe though! The key to making it look upscale though is tucking in your laces and hiding them inside the shoe. These were the shoes I kept! This is my second pair of Jeffrey Campbells, I also own these sandals.

Oliver Cabell - GAT

Axel Arigato The Clean 90 Sneakers - the label combines the minimalist design of Scandinavia with the aesthetics of Japan, production is based in Porto. 

Rag & Bone Retro Legacy from last season so limited sizes left

Loewe Ballet Runner If only these shoes weren't $600

Spoiler Alert

This is what I ordered. The Mockingbird is my favorite but I think with the mesh panels it can't be worn in the rain. lol So I'm also going to keep the Keys sneaker. I do want to hide the laces though. The Ecco had no cushioning, I couldn't walk long distances in it.
