Our Definitive List of the Best White Trainers of 2023


Last Updated on May 16, 2023

Are all white trainers created equal? I don’t think so!

There are some sneaker styles that have real sticking power. They’re not just trainers, but symbols of the moment.

Take Converse Chuck Taylors for instance. These iconic sneakers became one of the most celebrated styles of the 1960s, with 90% of college and professional basketball players wearing Chuck Taylor All Stars.

The 1970s saw the arrival of adidas’ Stan Smith sneakers, which remain one of the world’s most loved styles today.

Then in the 90s, trainers were chunkier than ever before thanks to pop icons like Britney Spears and The Spice Girls. Think Buffalos, FILA Disruptors and Sketchers.

Sneakers are like a little piece of fashion history, always evolving and changing with the times, so it can be hard to know which to buy at any given moment.

If I only had to follow one shoe trend this year, it would have to be white trainers. The New Balance 530—which now have over 326.4 million views on TikTok—is number one on my sneaker wish list.

While there has been a clear shift towards bolder and more unique designs, white trainers remain a staple. They offer a classic, clean look that can go with anything, and it’s safe to say they never really date.

So whether white trainers are “in” or not is a matter of personal preference. If you love the clean, classic look they offer, then they will always be a stylish choice.

Celebrities like Emily Ratajowski wearing being pictured in white trainers demonstrates that this style is going absolutely no where, even though sporty and athletic sneakers have become more prominent.

Instead, white trainers have undergone an evolution and now come in a huge variety of silhouettes and vivid colour accents.
