The last handful of seasons we’ve observed a noticeable uptick in the popularity of the white shoe trend. Runway designers across the gamut have adopted it, as have the street style set of fashion editors, style bloggers, and the ilk. We can’t blame them—the look is admittedly fresh feeling amongst the sea of backless loafers and mule slides that have dominated the scene as of late. If the mention of white footwear conjures connotations of quasi-tacky power dressing from the 1980s, fear not, that is not what this is. Instead, key designers like Denma Gvasalia of Balenciaga, Mary-Kate and Ashley’s The Row, and even more timely, contemporary labels like Rejina Pro, Dorateymur, and Neous are all offering unexpected, creative approaches to the all-white shoe.

For spring, we suggest three different takes on the look: boots, flats, and heels (pretty straightforward, right?). Whether you’re searching for a way to infuse your office outfit with a slight edge or want to funk up your next night out look, the edit below is sure to give you just what you’re looking for below the ankles.
