3 Cute White Tennis Shoes Perfect For Spring

The lure of the pared back minimal chic of a simple white tennis plimsol is hard to resist, and a refreshing antidote and alternative to the built up Dad sneakers and turbo trainer trends we’ve been seeing…

While the cult status of various Adidas Yungs, Nikes and the hi-status appeal of Balenciaga Triple S is probably not going anywhere, the simple white tennis shoe, an even more pared back version of the over-saturated Stan Smith, can take its place in your wardrobe as a reliable classic to pull out day-in day-out come the Spring.

My fave styles right now are: last year’s sell-out *Superga x Alexa Chungs, the brilliant Veja Volley style (all colours & sizes here) and the Wata, and my latest crush: these reworked canvas *Tretorn Nylites – the new take on the cult sneaker (worn by the likes of Bjorn Berg, Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin and a gorgeous 1977 Arnie – see below!) – with a sustainable and enviromentally-friendly twist: recycled insole, eco suede, locally sourced canvas and natural rubber.

Here’s a link to the Treton pair with a white sole and a link for the natural sole pictured above…

I bought this Veja pair from the Veja site as they’d practically sold out on NAP – all colours & sizes stocked there though!
