You can’t really go wrong with a pair of white (or neutral) trainers.

Whether you decide to dress them up or down, there are a whole host of ways that you can incorporate these simple shoes into your everyday looks.

In fact, the humble white sneaker is the ultimate chameleon in our closets: simply pair with wide-leg black trousers for a sophisticated office look, or with a midi skirt for a transitional outfit, or just with fail-safe blue demin.

They work time and time again, blending into different looks perfectly.

And whether you prefer them with a ‘fresh out the box’ pristine appearance or scuffed up a little bit, there are so many different style options available.

We’ve rounded up some of our favourites to see you through autumn and winter.

Cru Signature
