Back to the Future in White Sneakers!

Having just watched “Back to the Future” for the umpteenth time and seen Michael J Fox wearing white sneakers I couldn’t help but giggle…

The white sneaker has been an item for a few years now but this Fall/Winter they are becoming more hot than ever! Personally I love the look and have gone out and bought white leather high tops as potential “goto” shoes for this Fall/Winter.

It feels a little like going back in time as this was definitely the look we dressed up in the 80’s – but you know what who cares – if you like it go for it!

5 Reasons to buy white sneakers for Fall/Winter:

1) They look brilliant paired up with all black.

2) They are the one shoe you can wear all year round!

3) White sneakers are like the new black – bound to be in next season too!

4) They add a slight Teenie edge to your look keeping you young at heart!

5) They look good with both trousers and leggings & skirts. (although personally I prefer allstars above high tops when wearing with a skirt).

  1. This is such a CUTE post Yvonne and I love how you styled your white sneakers in different ways. I agree with you about the All Stars being cute with a skirt. That’s what I wore every day in elementary school when my mom made me wear dresses. hehe. Thanks for linking to me, that was so thoughtful and the pic of you jumping is so fun! Perfect for the post
