Koh Chuin Ying curates a collection of all-white kicks that put sporty chic in your step
$199 at Lacoste, #02-14 Wisma Atria and selected Lacoste boutiques
This shoe’s premium leather fabric means you’ll want to wear them on evenings out or on more formal occasions. Its moulded insole and punched toe detailing also provides breathability. And as a nod to the brand code, the discreet L.12.12 woven label under the tongue and embroidered green croc logo will make you feel effortlessly well-heeled.
$69.90 at Zara stores
Just when you thought your love for Zara couldn’t get any stronger, the Spanish high street brand launches its GYMWEAR collection, which includes this light sports shoe. Now when you hit the gym, you can slip and slide into athleisure mode. Also available in other colours.
$99.90 at Converse stores
Arguably the shoe that started the white sneaker obsession some 99 years ago, we’re willing to bet everyone you know – yourself included – owns a (battered) pair. These Chuck II’s feature a new foamy insole, a no-slip tongue and a tougher canvas, so they’re far more ergonomic than their predecessors. You can rock these anywhere you go – and for longer, too.
$289 at Adidas stores
Touted as the ‘greatest ever’ distance running shoe, this pair has 20 percent more cushioning material than the brand’s Energy Boost sole – and, Adidas claims, the highest amount of return cushioning compared to all other running shoes. Still, these look too good to hit the track with.
$640 at Pedder on Scotts, L2 Scotts Square
If you want to veer away from laces, these will up the ante. These rubber sole slip-ons ensure comfort for the feet, while the buffed leather exterior and leather lining pair well with any outfit. And before baulking at the price, note that the entire sneaker is stitched by hand and made of Italian leather.
$220 at Nike stores
Nike’s most iconic basketball shoe appears in the signature Flyknit technology for the first time. Its clean white/ice colourway is one of the latest – and most anticipated – versions. Yes, its flexibility means it’s best used on the court, but the new yarn fabric, which makes the sneaker light and snugger, transitions seamlessly to the pavements, too.
