You can’t avoid white sneakers right now. They’re everywhere. And that’s an awesome thing. For one, they’re comfortable. Many styles offer cushioned footbeds and breathable linings in a soft leather or canvas. That’s a recipe for happy feet right there. And when your feet are happy, everything up the chain (your legs, your back) are happy, too.
White sneakers are also an incredibly versatile pick. You don’t have to pair them with jeans or leggings to pull them off. Celebs are absolutely obsessed with the white tennis shoe trend, and you’ll see them wearing the kicks with dresses, skirts, and even denim jumpsuits and oversized suits. We weren’t kidding when we said they were versatile! (Check out these chic ways to sport sneakers when you’re not working out.)
We scoured the Internet for some of the best options. To make this list, the sneakers had to feel good, last for the long haul (as in, an entire day walking around adulting on the weekend), and look sleek and cool, too. Friends, we found six great white shoes for women that fit the bill. The second you try a pair on (if you haven’t already), you’ll see what all the fuss is about.
And even though all of our picks are white sneakers, we incorporated some different styles in the mix. Some are leather, while others are canvas. Some are white on white, while others add a little green, red, or blue, or some color in the sole. Many styles you’ve heard of and maybe even seen before—they’ve been around a while, but have recently gotten an upgrade to make them new again. All are equally amazing.
White sneakers are the It girl of footwear. From the park to the gym to fancy dinner spots to celeb paparazzi shots, you’d be hard pressed to find a place where someone isn’t wearing a pair. Not to mention, when you mix the comfort of sneakers with classic monochrome style, that’s a recipe for happy feet. And when your feet are happy? The rest of your bod feels great, too.
White sneakers are also an incredibly versatile pick. You don’t have to pair them with leggings, a sports bra, and a workout to pull them off. Pair the shoes with dresses or skirts while out with friends, or even an oversized suit for a comfy-chic vibe.
The sneakers below look great, of course. But, they also feel amazing, and there are tons of options to choose from depending on what your favorite sneaker-wearing activities might be. There are fancy white shoes you could easily wear to work, comfy white sneakers;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link rapid-noclick-resp”>comfy white sneakers for those who enjoy walking, some lightweight running shoes, and more.
There are even tons of price options available when it comes to sneakers. Planning on wearing these everyday? Maybe you’ll want to invest in some Nike or Adidas shoes. And, if budget is a concern, I hear ya! Tons of the options below are even under $50.
See below for the 25 best white sneakers for women in 2022.
Cloudfoam Pure Running Shoe
Technically labeled a running shoe because of how lightweight they are, Adidas’ Cloudfoam sneakers are a great walking shoe, too. The subtle logo adds a IYKYK cool factor to these otherwise simple and sleek all-white sneakers. And word to the savvy shopper: You can frequently catch these on sale on Amazon.
Rave Review: “A great, well priced, low profile athletic shoe. Very pleased with fit, comfort, support, and skid protection. Also nice looking.”
Chuck Taylor® All Star® Low Top Sneaker
These classic kicks stay iconic—and for good reason. You can pair a pair of Converse low tops with just about any outfit, from a casual jeans and tee to a silky slip dress. (Don’t believe me? Just try it, and prepare to be amazed at the instant Cool Girl™ look.) Double canvas makes these sneakers breathable for all-day wear, and they’re durable enough for long walks, too.
Rave Review: “I love my Chuck Taylor Low Sneaker in Optic White. They are such a classic color that I can wear with many different outfits. I definitely wanted a summer sneaker, and these are perfect… They fit perfectly and are comfortable!”
Unisex Cotu Classic Sneaker
If Kate Middleton is into them, you know they’re good. The breathable lace-up sneakers feature a cushioned footbed, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised to hear that the royalty-approved shoes are under $100 and totally unisex (so you can share with your prince(ss)!).
Rave Review: “I wear these as everyday teacher shoes. I’m on my feet all day and these are comfortable. They are cute and seem to be better made than other brands I’ve tried.”
Club MEMT Sneaker
You may have associated these shoes with your dad when you were growing up, but now that dad shoes are all the rage, they’re instantly of-the-moment again. The best part about the trend is that they feature a super thick footbed, providing tons of support for long walks.
Rave Review: “These shoes are spot on for size and very comfortable! They clean super easy with a magic eraser! I wear them almost everyday.”
Champion Canvas Slip-On Sneaker
Keds are so beloved (by Taylor Swift and mere mortals alike!) because they go with basically everything, from dresses to skirts and jeans. You wouldn’t want to work out or go for long walks in them because the footbed is on the thinner side, but these easy slip-on sneakers are a breathable summer vacay or beach shoe option.
Rave Review: “I am all about comfort for my feet & these Keds definitely fit the bill!! AND, they are so easy to slide into & go with just about anything you’re wearing!”
Air Force 1
Air Force 1 sneakers are a favorite among the Women’s Health team—thanks in no small part to the shoe’s classic style details: embedded stripes, a dotted mesh pattern at the toe, and (of course!) the iconic Nike swoosh. They’re a bit too heavy to be a running shoe, but the highly cushioned lining and footbed makes them an amazing year-round walking sneaker.
Rave Review: “I’ve sworn by Air Force 1s for years. Between my husband and I, we probably own 15 pairs. My bright white ones go with every outfit, so I’ll never be without a pair. We wore them on a recent trip to France walking 20,000 steps a day, and I couldn’t believe how good my feet felt afterwards.” – Amanda Lucci, WH’s Deputy Editor of Content Strategy
Featuring a sock liner made with Puma’s SoftFoam+ technology, the Carina sneakers provide targeted support for the toe and heel, so they’re great for anyone who might be prone to soreness in those areas in particular. You can’t go wrong with the plain white option, but they also have white sneakers with a little neon stripe detail on them.
Rave Review: “Puma has been my favorite shoe brand for the last 15 years or so and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. This particular style is a good look but keep in mind that it’s not as flexible as a walking or running shoe because the sole is a bit thicker and stiffer, but they’re not uncomfortable shoes by any means… I wouldn’t say that these shoes have a ton of arch support considering that my feet do have quite an arch but they’re definitely not painful and I don’t have any issues at the end of the day.”
FuelCore Nergize V1 Sneaker
With over 40,000 five-star reviews, runners can’t stop raving about these New Balance sneakers. A special band around the arch provides targeted support, and the memory foam sole is designed to really hug the foot with a super lightweight feel. (Pro tip: order half a size up from your typical shoe size for the best fit.)
Rave Review: “I bought these shoes because they are lighter weight than my other tennis shoes, and a more neutral color. I was a little nervous about not having much arch support (I overpronate) but these shoes have been fantastic. I wear them all day long and still feel great. In fact, I am buying a second pair just to wear around the house for support. They have a nice simple look, too. I can’t recommend them enough.”
Don’t be surprised if this is the sneaker becomes your default footwear day after day. Not only can you slip on these shoes right before running out the door, but they’re also made with a comfy padded collar, flexible top, and Dr. Scholls’ signature cushioned insoles built right in.
Rave Review: “I have owned several versions of shoes like this over the years, and this is definitely the best one… They were comfortable the first day that I wore them and didn’t need to be broken in at all. They seem well made and of good quality.”
Slip-On Platform Sock Sneakers
Hey, not all of us are out here on a ballroom floor in heels. Whether for cardio dance class or filming TikTok choreography for your followers, these sneakers are super lightweight yet feature a thick memory foam to keep you heavily cushioned while light on your feet.
Road And Indoor Spin Shoes
Designed for both indoor and outdoor biking, the stiff outsole on these shoes support any pedal style. They’re built to hold any two or three-hole cleats for whatever indoor bike you may have, too.
Cloudaway Hiking Sneaker
Founded by an actual Ironman champion, you can trust that On’s shoes are seriously durable. Made for hiking and with 90 percent recycled materials, they’re an environmentalist’s dream. Bonus: they’re “crushable” and easy to pack!
Women’s Wool Runners
White sneakers may not be the first thing you reach for when it’s raining or if you’re going camping, but these are the exception. These babies are made with Allbirds’ signature washable fabric, so get as muddy as you’d like, then simply throw them in the washing machine!
Runner-loved brand Hoka One One is great about catering to a (literal) wide range of foot sizes. All their shoes come in a “wide” option, including this one. And if you don’t want an all-white sneaker, you can also snag these that have a thin yellow stripe along the side.
Ambassador Elite Tennis Sneaker
Specifically designed with ridges on the bottom to provide traction while on the courts, K-Swiss’ tennis shoes are a classic. The little metallic detailing on the sides will look just as great at brunch if you’re not really a tennis player, too.
Women’s Campo Sneakers
Made with rice waste and recycled rubber, Veja’s sneakers are a fan favorite amongst those trying to make more environmentally conscious purchases. These aren’t a workout sneaker, but the neutral V accent makes them a great off-duty shoe.
Diablo Wrestling Boxing Shoes
Unisex Water Sports Shoes
Designed to make you feel like you’re actually fully barefoot, you’ll love these shoes whether you live by the water, spend a lot of time on your bougie friend’s boat, or just love water sports. They’re really flexible and versatile, making them a great vacation shoe, too!
Classic Slip-On Stackform Sneaker
Thanks to platform shoes becoming a thing now, there’s no need to sacrifice the height of a heel for the comfort of a sneaker. Vans’ are one of the few out there that are truly fully white—they’re a great option for your wide-leg mom jeans or to pair with a sundress in the summertime.
Royal Hi 2 Sneakers
Reebok’s Royal Hi 2 shoes offer the same height of a platform sneaker with a more casual, traditional sneaker feel. These have a neutral copper accent, but other options feature the logo in pink or with gold stripes on the sides.
