It pays to have a closet filled with clothes that you can wear again and again and style to match all sorts of looks and occasions. The same goes for your shoes. Footwear is normally the last step of the dressing ritual—but it can make or break a great outfit, so owning pairs that would elevate a variety of your ensembles is key. One of the most reliable styles for such is the ubiquitous white sneaker—we like to go by the philosophy that you can never own too many. Below, we round up 10 sleek white sneakers that sport clean, minimalist silhouettes!
