White sneakers were big last year, and I don’t think the trend is going anywhere. Why? Well when I think about these shoes and the way they’re worn, and I think beyond contemporary fashion, I get flashes of white Adidas Superstars (shelltoes) from the ’80s. Think Run DMC and Beastie Boys, think NYC street style, think hip hop – there’s such a thick fabric of nostalgia that is fundamental to every sweet pair of white kicks, and let’s face it there’s a little bit of hip hop in all of us.
I dress my white sneakers up and down, they’re super comfy, they go with just about everything, but up until now I am embarrassed to say that I didn’t own one pair of high tops! So in walk these little bad boys to my new wardrobe – White Windsor Smith Hazelles! I’m also wearing their Harley shoes below as well, both perforated with silver heels – check them out below:
I’ve probably got 10 pairs of Windsor Smith shoes and boots and they’re one of those brands that really hits the mark when it comes to accessorising without blowing a fortune. So check out these pics and please let me know what your favourite white sneakers are – I think we’ll all be wearing a lot more of them this year! Below I’ve dressed down with the high top Hazelles and paired a blazer and shorts with the Harleys.
