The all-white kicks can be the starting point from which you can build your looks. It is very versatile that it has become a staple—a wardrobe must! Wear it with jeans, shorts or even a suit any day of the year (yes, including winter). Also, I like how it softens a blazer look, making it more young and approachable.

The king of them all—the Achilles Low has a minimalist, logo-free design (read: bullshit free) and looks very luxe. It’s the grown-up man’s sneakers. (Can someone gift me a pair this Christmas? I’m size 40, thanks!)
Common Projects Original Achilles Low. Get it from SSENSE.
Maison Martin Margiela
It’s not entirely white but if you’re into army trainers then this is for you. It is very chic in a retro kind of way.

Cuffed jeans and high top Chucks. ‘Nuff said.
Or you can opt for the low-cut version if that’s more your style.

Get this if leather or canvas is not your thing and if you want something that looks more sporty.
Adidas Originals NMD R1 Primeknit Sneakers. Get it from Stylebop.
Another no-nonsense pair. Very straightforward and I like the contrast of the white leather against the thick gum sole.

Again, an option that is not “all-white”. The bold color stripe lifts up this shoe to the next level. Get it in your favorite color.

Oh, and to those who have some degree of self-control left in them (please ignore if you don’t), it’s Black Friday in a few days so you know what that means. 😉
