If there was one normcore trend that was on top of the footwear ladder last year, it would be the white sneaker.
While the basic silhouette undoubtedly reigned supreme in 2015, we were at a crossroads recently; has the shoe peaked and is it moving towards decline?
Well, don't just toss away your white kicks just yet. Ladies aren't ready to say bye to a fad that's versatile and comfortable. Even I'm jumping on board after fighting the urge for over a year and I have a mini heart attack every time I wear anything white because I am painfully aware of how clumsy I am!
However, going to buy a white sneaker is a lot like the age-old quest for the perfect LBD: you have to find the perfect fit.
Slip-ons are the most convenient. They look sleek and hassle-free and we found the perfect pair at Mango. Plus, the chunky sole also adds a tiny bit of height and who doesn't love looking taller?
Not sure you can pull them off and are hesitant to splurge? No problem, you can go down memory lane, walk right into Bata and get a pair of Tomy (ahem, not Toms!) lace-ups. The best part? They cost just Rs. 899!
If plain white is too basic for you, how about some with a little sparkle?
Lahoris can get their hands on these funky kicks available at Pepe Jeans; they'll set you back Rs. 4,950 but you get what you pay for and they're likely to last you a while.
Just like adding a red lip to an all-white outfit, the same concept applies to all-white sneakers. So how about some adorable Lahore lovin' footgear from Almas. At Rs. 1450 a pop, these will put you on the Instagram trend map without putting a dent on your wallet.
Remember, always practice safe sneakers. With white shoes, comes great responsibility. The washing machine is your friend and a toothbrush and soft cloth are the vital tools needed to carry out a dirt intervention when the time comes and believe me, the time will come sooner rather than later. Happy shopping!
