The all-white sneaker has been kicked to the curb over the past few years by the gradual but unmistakable dandification of menswear. Clean and simple, the pure white sports shoe is the epitome of causal understatement, leisure and discreet luxury. Effortlessly impractical, it draws the attention of even the least switched on observer by virtue of its spectacular ordinariness.
