An ultra-stylish pair of white sneakers is an absolute must-have come summer. They are a timeless staple of men’s style that have been around long before loud mega-sneakers overtook the world of streetwear. (We broke down the cost of the Balenciaga Triple S version of the ugly dad shoe, which falls squarely in the loud category.) Now that the cold, dirty slush of winter is behind us, the days of sneaker weather have finally returned—and new white sneakers are a requirement in every dude’s summer wardrobe.

Here are nine dope white sneakers for under $200 that will keep you going all day, every day. Enjoy your fly summer.
