The ultimate street style staple.

The white sneaker, much like the white t-shirt, is an essential building block to any wardrobe. You never need to fret about how to style the shoe—it looks great peeking out from underneath a floral dress, it looks great when worn with cuffed jeans and a t-shirt. Whether you prefer your white sneakers crisp and clean or more distressed (a tried-and-true tip: use Mr. Clean magic erasers to gently erase stains and dirt), this street-style shoe never looks stale. Especially since this season's newest selections come with cool designs like quilting, logos, elevated platforms, eco-friendly touches, and more. Plus, there's a pair of white kicks for every budget. Ahead, 29 of the best white sneakers for 2021 that are worth the perpetual cleaning cycle.
