Looking ahead from winter to spring sneakers, know this: we are still in the era of the re-appreciation of the adidas Stan Smith tennis shoe. Aka the whitest sneaker that ever white-ed in the history of whiteness.
Get you some white Stan Smiths and you shall look fresh for spring.
But do not fail to consider the all-black Stan Smith, which is crucial in its own way. Or black-on-black sneakers in general. Once the provenance of video store guys, black sneakers are having their own fashion moment. Choose a pair with clean lines and achieve the same monochromatic outfit-grounding power of white sneakers–without showing dirt.
Twelve styles are pictured above and linked below.
