If you would have told my high-school self that one day I’d be wearing jeans and sneakers, I would have told you to get lost. I mean, there’s no greater “dad” look than wearing a pair of white New Balances with a pair of light wash jeans and you won’t convince me otherwise. But frankly, this season it’s perfectly on-trend to rummage through your dad’s closet and borrow a blazer, jeans, and a pair of white tennis shoes. And while the oversized blazer and jeans trend might meet its end soon, there’s one thing that remains a classic regardless of what’s happening in fashion: a great, comfy, white sneaker. This spring and summer are no different.

Putting on a new, crisp white pair of sneakers is like ordering a caesar salad and table fries, it just feels right. So, I asked the Betches audience which white sneakers were elite and you did not disappoint. Here are the 7 most popular answers.

Veja Campo Sneaker

While these are classic in their own right, they are 100% the new kids on the block. It’s like all the sudden in 2017 I saw every single human that graced the streets of NYC wearing a pair, and for good reason. They are sustainably made with organic cotton and wild Amazonian rubber. Something your ego (and wallet) can feel good about.

Superga 2750 Cotu Classic Sneaker

I’d be remiss if I didn’t tell you a brief story about why I personally love Superga’s. TL;DR It was 2008 and I saw Joe Jonas wearing Supergas, so I bought Supergas. They’re super comfy, come in a ton of colors, and make me feel cultured since they’re made in Italy. Honestly, TG for Joe Jonas or I would have never found my favorite shoes.

Air Force 1s

Honestly, if you don’t know what these are, are you even a zillenial? I swear these paired with a black onesie and an oversized white button-down is the equivalent to the “cool girl” uniform. You can catch me grabbing an iced matcha in these everyday for the foreseeable future.

Dr. Scholl’s Time Off Platform Sneaker

I’m not going to lie, these threw me for a loop. Before I tried these, nothing screamed, “I’m getting old” quite like officially investing in a pair of Dr. Scholls. But, don’t judge a book by it’s cover, because not only are these cute-AF wearing them is like walking on clouds.

Hoka Bondi 8

If you’re looking for a new pair of shoes for your hot girl walks, look no further. These might not be your obvious choice for a normal, everyday sneaker but nothing can compete with these if you’re walking long distances. Like, they’re even approved by ​the American Podiatric Medical Association.

Reebok Women’s Club C Sneaker

If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. That how I feel about these Reebok sneakers. I’ve seen these for as long as I can remember. (No, really, I remember seeing these on the playground in kindergarten.) They were a staple then, and they’re a staple now. A perfect addition to your capsule wardrobe.

Leather Converse

This wouldn’t be a complete list without the obvious classic: Converse. What makes these a bit more trendy (and honestly, grown-up) is the fact that they’re leather. They’ll also stay clean for a hell of a lot longer than the canvas ones, so it won’t look like you just came from a frat party basement even though you’re 30.

6 Sneakers To Wear At Your Wedding That Aren’t Tacky

As your resident fashion expert, it may seem odd that I’m suggesting you have some stylish sneaks to wear for your wedding. Not for like, the ceremony of course, but definitely for the reception. Once you’ve gotten through all the ceremonial stuff, it’s time to let go of your Type-A bridezilla tendencies and partayyyyy. You paid all this money for your demonstration of love, so if you don’t let loose to “Yeah” by Usher afterwards, then you’re not doing it right. The problem? Heels are uncomfortable, obviously. That’s where wedding sneakers come in. When done right, they can be a lifesaver that adds a playful touch to your look. But that being said, I’m def not suggesting you throw on your best Nikes that you wear to Barry’s Boot Camp for your big day. Your shoes need to be cute, stylish and go with your bridal look in the least tacky way possible. It’s not an easy feat, but I’m here to help.

1. KEDS for Kate Spade New York Triple Decker Glitter Sneaker

These ones are a collab between Kate Spade and Keds, and are as predictable as it gets for bridal wedding sneakers. They’re sweet, cute, and basic, but unlike other options…not tacky. The platform is great for a little extra height, and the glitter makes them festive in a non JoJo Siwa-adjacent way.

2. Superga 2790 Linea Platform Sneaker

These sneakers are an easy, classic option that you’ll totally rewear post-nuptials. They’re a great everyday sneaker that would look chic and clean with your wedding dress. They’re effortlessly stylish and say “I’m not a regular bride, I’m a cool bride.”

3. Nike Air Force 1 ’07 LXX Sneaker

I’m obsessed with these sneakers, especially for breaking it down at your wedding reception. They’re unique and less predictable than the ones offered at bridal stores. Not to mention, Air Force sneakers are the comfiest of comfy, which will be an amazing relief to put on after your hard day of being your most beautiful self. Hey, beauty is pain!

4. Golden Goose Running Sole Sneaker

Yes, these ones are expensive, but if your soon-to-be hubby tries to give you sh*t, just remind him, “It’s my f*cking wedding day!” *Said in your best Stassi Schroeder impression.* These sneakers are fashionable and cool, but don’t have that dirty old sneaker look that many Golden Goose sneakers are famous for (sry). The last thing you need on your big day is having to explain to your in-laws that yes, you bought your shoes like this. And yes, you did pay for sneakers that look dirty.

5. Marc Jacobs Daisy Studded Slip On Sneaker

I love how feminine and whimsical these slip-on sneakers are! They’re perfect for the bride having her fairytale wedding, who’s too girly to wear a traditional sneaker with her dress. These have the iconic Marc Jacobs daisies on them, so you know they’re both feminine and street style-approved.

6. Moschino Platform Sneakers

Okay, these ones are for the bride who prides herself on her fashionista ways. Again, they’re predictably expensive cause like, they’re Moschino, but if you ask me, I’d tell you they’re worth it. Like, these are totally the sneakers Erika Jayne would wear at her wedding reception. And I mean, if Erika Jayne would wear them, then you should too.

Trust me, after a day full of smiling for the camera and excruciatingly beautiful heels, you’re going to be happy to have a cool pair of wedding sneakers to change into. I mean like, I’ve never been a bride or anything, but I have gone out in heels, and was in so much pain that I HAD to change into those drugstore ballet flats that fit unnaturally into your clutch. No, I wasn’t prepared enough to have had them in my purse, my friend did. But let me tell you, I was glad she did. Don’t be forced to wear your friend’s flats that conveniently yet inexplicably fit into her purse on your big day. Rather, maintain your dignity and prepare by getting one of these stylish pairs of sneakers instead.
