So many people have told me they are too afraid of wearing white shoes because of the maintenance. Wearing them out once and you come home with scuffs and dirt marks. I once shared this fear and stayed far away from all white shoes. But like most people, my opinion changed. I went out and bought my first pair of all white canvas Converses.
Stars like David Beckham and the boys of One Direction have been seen sporting all white sneakers for some time now and I can agree they look pretty awesome doing so. White sneakers can add a touch of style you didn’t even realize was missing from your outfit. Some people really love to distress their white shoes to give them the “lived in” look, but I am a fan of crisp and clean. You can wear them with suits or with something as simple as a white shirt and dark denim. The versatility of this style must have really has no limits. One trick I’ve learned with my white shoes is to wash them! Throw them in with a load of whites and run on gentle and they will look good as new in no time.
If you decide on white leather or something that isn’t canvas for your white shoe, make sure and give them a good polish at the end of the day. Maintenance and proper care is key, gentleman.
