Men's Trend: White Kicks

Luxe blanched men's sneaker styles dominate for spring '15.

By

Luxe white sneaks dominated the designer men's market for spring '15. While at first glance they may resemble their athletic predecessors, materials like crocodile leather and python significantly upped the style factor for everything from high-tops to courts. Gucci and Louis Vuitton used exotic animal skins for texture, while Del Toro updated the trainer with sleek cutouts. And playful styles from Alberto Moretti and Versace elevated the look from stark to sprightly. Meanwhile, Tom Ford's off-white shade points to the trend's future color evolution. Though the sneaker movement has become a craze, the look here is understated yet indulgent.
