There are few pairs of shoes as versatile as a white sneaker. As someone who has done exhaustive research looking for the
best white sneakers for women, I can say there are a lot of options to choose from. And, it's an important decision. After all, a pair of sneakers can have a huge impact on your day, particularly if they're uncomfortable, too tight, or give you blisters.
As I looked high and low for great white sneakers for this list, I kept stumbling across some of the most famous sneaker brands. As you scroll through, you'll see some of the best white sneakers for women come from name-brands like adidas, Reebok, Skechers, and Converse. But, if name-brands aren't important to you ('What's in a rose?' As they say), you can find even more white sneakers out there that are worth your time. From a pair of slip-ons with memory foam soles (swoon!), to a chunky "Dad" sneaker, the shoes below cover all styles and designs.
If you're looking for a breathable shoe, you might be better off opting for a low-profile sneaker with a mesh upper that can let airflow into your feet. But, if you prefer a leather sneaker, there are plenty here with leather uppers that are comfortable and stylish (if not waterproof).
As somewhat of a white sneaker connoisseur, I've gathered up 23 of the finest trainers below. No matter what your personal style, you'll find a pair of kicks you love. Now presenting: the
best white sneakers for women. 1 Nautica Steam Sneaker
white sneakers are a classic look that everyone loves. They're made of vegan leather and have a casual, clean look. The outsole is rubber and the width of the shoe is average. They do have cushioned sole with padding on the inside and tread on the exterior so your feet will feel great and you’ll have plenty of traction on slippery surfaces. Reviewers say they're supportive and the perfect addition to a casual outfit. According to one reviewer: "These shoes are still comfortable after teaching for 8 hours! They are a little on the heavier side but aren’t too clunky. I really like these shoes and they are worth it. It took about two times wearing them for my foot to adjust to them but other than that they are great.” Available in sizes: Women's 6-10 2 Blowfish Malibu Marley Sneaker
Everyone needs a pair of shoes you can throw on and go — and these
canvas shoes are just that.The all-white shoes have a rubber sole on the bottom for traction. The price is hard to beat, plus these shoes could really be your canvas to add art to! Over 18,000 Amazon users and counting have added this pair of shoes to their closets. According to one reviewer: "This is the second time I have bought this pair of shoes. The first pair listed about two years as my everyday shoes, and I am hoping these will last about the same!” Available in sizes: Women's 5-11 3 Akk Athletic Walking Shoes
slip-on shoes have decorative laces and a thick, memory foam sole that is comfy and so easy to wear. The mesh upper allows for airflow when you’re running, hiking, or biking, and the higher tongue and heel are easy to grab to slide these on in a rush. According to one reviewer: "These are just the best and most comfortable shoes I've ever had. They slip right on and look like a million bucks plus they offer really decent arch support without the necessity of adding an orthotic. They are just very comfortable shoes.” Available in sizes: Women's 6-11 4 ZGR Canvas Low-Top Sneaker
low-top sneakers are seriously affordable. For just $20, you can get the same look and feel of a much more expensive shoe. They're constructed with a canvas material that is easy to wash in the washing machine. And, you can even get them in a high-top version if that's more to your taste. Reviewers are quick to say these shoes are nearly identical to the authentic Converse Chuck Taylors, at a much better price. According to one reviewer: "Better than the real Converse. I absolutely love these and will probably never buy actual Chuck Taylors again. The ONLY visible difference is that there isn’t a label. But these are actually way more comfortable than the real deal. I’ve received lots of compliments of them." Available in sizes: Women's 6-11 5 adidas Ultraboost DNA Running Shoe
They’re a splurge, but these Ultraboost sneakers are a fan-favorite, and have a classic all-white design that looks good with any outfit. Even better, these sneakers are great for all manner of activity, from running, to high-impact exercise, to long walks. I should know, they’re my personal favorite.
According to one reviewer: "These shoes felt comfortable from the moment I put them on - hardly any need to break them in. They have a good cushion and fit me perfectly.” Available in sizes: Women's 5-12 6 Keds Champion Original Leather Lace-Up Sneaker
A pair of Keds has been a wardrobe staple for generations. And these
low-rise, lace-up sneakers by Keds are the perfect supplement to nearly any outfit. Even better, they're available in a massive range of shoe sizes and four different shoe widths, so you can find the best fit for you. And, even though the upper is made partially of leather, these shoes are easy to wash with soap and water so you can keep your white kicks looking fresh that much longer. According to one reviewer: "It's so hard to find cute comfortable shoes in wide or double wide sizes. I decided to try these in white leather since they come in WW and from the moment I put them on I was in love. Not only do they look fabulous, but they just feel great. I wanted a flat shoe with no drop, no extra cushy support, and preferably no arch support... I am now using these as my regular walking shoe." Available in sizes: Women's 4-13 (in narrow, short, wide, and extra-wide sizes) 7 PUMA Carina Sneaker
white sneakers are designed with a leather upper that's perforated for more breathability. They have a slight platform that'll elevate you, and a chic pink stripe across the side (there are a bunch of color combinations you can choose from.) Their soles are one big reason they've earned a 4.8-star rating on Amazon. They're designed with a unique "cupsole" that hugs your foot and a "sockfoam" liner that adds cushioning under your feet as you walk. According to one reviewer: "These are the perfect white sneaker for jeans! I’ve been looking for the perfect simple white sneaker for a few months now. I wanted something less bulky than the adidas superstar and these are it!!!” Available in sizes: Women's 5.5-11 8 adidas Advantage Sneaker
With a chic gold detailing on the heel, these
classic adidas sneakers are about as versatile as they come. They’re also designed with adidas’ signature “Cloudfoam” technology, which creates a cloud-like surface under your feet to walk on. These are raised a bit on a platform, so you’ll get a bit of extra height with these sneakers. And, if gold isn’t your style, this pair comes in a bunch of white styles with different-colored heels. According to one reviewer: "They're called cloud foam for a reason! Super comfy; I feel like I'm walking on clouds with how white and comfy they are!” Available in sizes: Women's 4.5-11 9 Fila D-Formation Sneaker
Fila D-Formations are a fantastic shoe for a few reasons. First, they're durable build means these can hold up to a lot of wear for a really long time. While these don't have the slim profile of a slip-on, that works in their favor. The treading on the outsole of the shoe may make the shoe look larger, but it also prevents you from slipping. And, despite their appearance, they're not truly very heavy. The sole is made of a lightweight EVA foam that's supportive and won't weigh the shoe down. According to one reviewer: "Perfect. I really like the arch support. I have a hard time finding shoes that I can walk long distances in but these shoes fit the bill. Love them." Available in sizes: Women's 6.5-12 10 SODA Perforated Slip-On Sneakers
If lace-up sneaks aren't your style, a comfortable slip-on shoe like these
ones from SODA could be just the ticket. The entire shoe is made with synthetic materials that can be easily thrown in the washing machine and then air-dried. One note: While reviewers admit that these shoes can be stiff at first, they stretched and are much more comfortable after a few wears. According to one reviewer: "These are cute and comfortable! I took the advice from other reviews and sized down. I am usually a 6.5 but got a 6 and they fit perfect. I have wide feet and these adjusted very well. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a simple but cute shoe." Available in sizes: Women's 5.5-10 11 Reebok Club C 85 Vintage Running Shoes
soft leather shoes combine function and retro flare. These shoes support your whole foot and are lined with terry, so they're super soft. The padded foam sockliner cushions your foot and complements your vintage look. These shoes aren't for hard-core workouts, but a walk around the block in these stylish kicks and you'll see how comfortable they truly are. They may require some breaking in, but reviewers say it's worth the comfort that follows. According to one reviewer: "I LOVE these shoes, i wear them all the time with everything. They did need some breaking in, i got blisters the first week but with some thick socks, it's no big deal. Now they are so comfy and adorable." Available in sizes: Women's 5-11 12 Feetmat Slip-On Shoes
slip-on shoes do have built-in laces, they're largely for show. These white sneakers from Feetmat fit at your ankles and cling tight to your foot. They're designed with an anti-slip outsole that'll keep you secure in your footing, and they're completely seamless so they won't tear or fray with repeated wear. Like similar styles on this list, these shoes have a breathable upper that allows airflow to your feet. This pair is great for any weather or season, from a chilly fall evening to a sweltering summer day. According to one reviewer: "Oh the shoes!! I was looking for a comfortable walking shoe... My toes tend to get smooshed in most tennis shoes and have not been able to find comfy shoes til these. They are amazing... worth every penny thus far." Available in sizes: Women's 6-13 13 DUOYANGJIASHA Athletic Mesh White Sneakers
For just $22, you likely won't find a better deal on a pair of
white trainers. While these have a cushioned insole for extra padding if you were to go for a long run, many reviewers say they're better for lighter exercise rather than pounding the pavement. They also have a metallic silver ripple design on either side, so when you're out and about during the daytime the light will catch your sneakers and your shoes will shine. A fun bonus, if you ask me. According to one reviewer: "My daughter loves these shoes. Just wanted a supplementary pair for weekends & such. Very surprised at the quality so far, especially considering the price difference in comparison to the shoes we normally buy. They've been worn many times during all kinds of activities & they seem to be holding up well. The color & style are appealing as well." Available in sizes: Women's 5-13.5 14 Reebok Classic Renaissance Sneaker
white Reeboks are actually designed to help you enhance your walking style. The beveled sole allows you to easily grip whatever ground you're walking on, and the interior sock liner makes these shoes comfortable on all sides. Even better, the soft leather upper will mold to the shape of your feet overtime. While Reeboks have a storied history as running shoes, these are a much better pair for lighter exercise or a day spent walking around. According to one reviewer: "These shoes are very comfortable and true to size, great for jobs and or activities that require long hours of standing. The memory foam inside gives these shoes the comfort one need. They have great arch support and made of soft material. They are breathable and the wide fit don't suffocate your feet after long hours of wear. I Love the classic leather look on these sneakers. I love the all black look and the best part is it is very easy to clean and hard to stain." Available in sizes: Women's 5-11 (available in wide widths as well) 15 Reebok Classic Nylon Sneaker
They may not be all white, but these cream and white sneakers feature a neutral color palette that looks chic dressed up or down. And, thanks to their EVA footsole, you’ll have plenty of support when you’re on your feet. You can see the traction on the bottom of this pair, designed to grip the ground below with great traction. Over 2,000 Amazon users have added this pair to their shoe wardrobe.
According to one reviewer: "I have ordered the same style Classic Reebok for years. They always fit beautifully, provide adequate support, and are attractive.” Available in sizes: Women's 3.5-12 16 adidas Grand Court Sneaker
I may be biased because these
white adidas are a personal favorite of mine, but they live up to the hype. Not only are the soles soft yet supportive, but the shoe itself only becomes more comfortable to wear as time goes on. They also have a sock liner designed with their signature "Cloudfoam" to mold to your individual feet. Word to the wise, sizing can vary a bit on these shoes so double check before you buy. Over 5,700 Amazon reviewers are in agreement: These shoes are a fantastic purchase. According to one reviewer: "I was looking for a sneaker that is comfy enough to wear while bartending and waitressing. These sneakers are SO COMFY. At first they seem a little stiff, including the tongue. After having them on for about 15 minutes, not stiff at all!" Available in sizes: Women's 4-11 17 hash bubbie High-Top Canvas Sneakers
high-top canvas sneakers have a completely white color palette. They lace up to the very top for a secure fit and plenty of ankle coverage, and they also have a gripped rubber sole for traction when you’re out and about. These sneakers come in another white color, with a classic red and blue stripe along the sole. But these all-white shoes are easy to pair with any outfit, and have hundreds of glowing Amazon reviews. According to one reviewer: "These shoes are extremely comfortable and great quality at a wonderful affordable price! Highly recommend and will be ordering more pairs for my granddaughter to decorate!” Available in sizes: Women's 5-11.5 18 Superga 2790 Acotw Fashion Sneaker
white Superga sneakers have a 1.5-inch platform that'll give you plenty of additional height. The outsole is made of rubber and can be easily wiped clean if you step in mud and need to spot clean. In turn, the upper is made of a cotton that can be thrown in the washing machine. Even better, the lace-up design allows you to customize how tight the bridge is over your foot. Reviewers and the manufacturer report these sneakers run a little bit large, so you may want to size up. According to one reviewer: "Bought these for my 20 year-old daughter who is petite and on her feet a lot. She loves the way they look and that they give her a little extra height. She was pleasantly surprised by the arch support. She normally wears a size 6.5 shoe, so these may run a little large. She also found that her heel slipped out of the shoe as she walked, so she added heel pads, which solved the problem." Available in sizes: Women's 6-10 19 JOOMRA Lightweight Sneakers
These shoes move with you. The 3D-woven upper of these
lightweight, white sneakers stretches and contours to your foot. Reviewers say they feel more like a sock than a shoe. They lace up, but the laces are hidden so you can slip them on and off as you please. Reviewers mention these shoes are wider, yet smaller than most tennis shoes, so size accordingly. The tongue and integrated collar of the shoe make for a low, comfortable cut that you can wear all day. According to one reviewer: "I have to have white sneakers for work and normally I dread trying to find a pair but these are awesome! I have worn them everyday for about 3 weeks now [and am] super happy with them. They are very lightweight and breathable, and super easy to take off and put on. I will be buying these again and have told everyone I work with to get a pair! Also can't beat the price!!" Available in sizes: Women's 5-11.5 20 Vans Low-Top Trainers
Vans are a cult favorite when it comes to skate shoes. This
white pair features all of the details shoppers love about Vans: that signature waffle rubber sole, the padded ankle, and durable canvas. These old-school style shoes lace all the way up for a retro look you'll love. The material is thick and waterproof and reviewers say they're built to last. According to one reviewer: "They are very flexible, very comfortable and great quality. I've had them for 4 months now and I am wearing them 80% of the time. I've had some problems at the [beginning] and I had to go through a few blisters until the leather takes the form of my foot. But now they fit as a glove and are such a nice quality. Would buy a few more pairs for family members. Available in sizes: Women's 4.5-11 21 PUMA Vikky 2 Sneaker
With a holographic stripe running up one side, these
white sneakers will catch the sun when you walk without clashing with any outfit you have planned. The leather upper is high-quality and will soften with regular wear, and the rubber soles help you grip the surface you’re on. These low-profile sneakers pair great with jeans, leggings, or skirts and dresses. According to one reviewer: “These shoes are really comfortable, especially considering they are brand new. I wore them all day and they didn’t even hurt. They fit well, but are a bit loose on my heel, but I think that may just be me. No complaints! I would buy them again.” Available in sizes: Women's 5.5-11 22 New Balance WW411v2 Walking Shoe
If you’re after the classic “dad” sneakers that have taken over the trends, New Balance is the brand for you. These
New Balance walking shoes combine cushioning on the insole with a lightweight upper to create a super comfy shoe for your feet to sink into. These shoes are so beloved by thousands of Amazon reviewers, many of them nurses and teachers who are on their feet all day long. These shoes even come in wide widths! According to one reviewer: "My New Balance tennis shoes are perfect for working out & walking on treadmill…shin splints are gone! I love walking again!!” Available in sizes: Women's 5 -12 (standard and wide widths) 23 WXQ Knit Fashion Sneakers
sock-like fashion sneakers truly make a statement, and come in the high-top design as well as a low-top design. The knit upper is breathable and soft, and these have thick soles with plenty of tread for any weather. Over 6,000 Amazon users own these sneakers, and they’ve earned a 4.4-star rating. According to one reviewer: "These shoes are fantastic in every way! They look so awesome on, they are [so] comfortable, great quality and you can’t beat the price! One of the best buys I’ve ever made. They’ll look amazing with anything." Available in sizes: Women's 5-11
