The style is as timeless—and timely—as ever.
If you're the neurotic type and get panicky at the very thought of someone scuffing your pristine new kicks, there couldn't be a better time to buy a pair of white sneakers. You've got nowhere to go, baby! Plus, assuming you can temporarily avoid pissing off whoever you're cooped up with in your apartment, you don't have to worry about anyone trying to vindictively crease your toe boxes, the way you do when you walk onto the subway platform and immediately scurry into a corner with the least potential exposure. Social distancing is for sneakerheads, man. Might as well call the whole thing "the white-sneaker shimmy." If the city of New York gave out a free pair of box-fresh white sneakers to every resident of the five boroughs, I swear to god the curve would be flattened in a week. There's a reason the white sneaker's become the go-to hero product for so many sneaker stalwarts and DTC upstarts alike: It's a hero product, in the most literal sense of the word. As in, it's here to save your sorry ass after your swore off sneakers for all of, like, a month, before you realized there's no loafer on earth as comfortable as your favorite pair of workout shoes. (Or literally any other sneaker ever.) Easy to style, endlessly versatile, and somehow always elegant, the white sneaker is a warm-weather staple, and it's here to stay.

From high-tops to lows, canvas to leather, we've rounded up some of the best versions available so you can cop now. But better sleep with one eye open, son, because I might have to come over there and stomp on your sneakers out of sheer spite.
