Travel Fashion Girl help! A reader asks:
Help! I’m trying to find some basic white sneakers I can wear with anything (dresses, jeans, etc.) that are comfortable as well, with a wide enough toe box that my feet aren’t squished. I bought some Stan Smith Boost shoes but aren’t sure if those are “the ones.” Most of the styles I’ve tried so far are either super-narrow or have no arch support whatsoever. A girl can only make (and return) so many Zappos orders. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!
Finding the perfect pair of shoes to add to your travel capsule wardrobe can seem impossible at times. Sometimes they’re stylish but not comfortable. Or comfy but unattractive. We asked our readers and they shared their picks for the best white sneakers.
Tip: Packing cubes make the perfect shoe bags to protect your luggage from dirty shoes.
It seems like Adidas Stan Smith sneakers have been everywhere! From Europe to North America and just about anywhere in between, these are the classic travel shoe of the moment.
They’ve definitely made a come back over the past year and have peaked the interest in white sneakers for travel and for everyday use.
You can say they’re the originator of the trend and have inspired this post on the best white sneakers for travel so we definitely couldn’t leave this trendy shoe off the list! However, if you want more comfort, the Advantage sneakers featured above boast having cushiony cloudfoam that gives an amazing step-in feel. Buy it here!
Taos Star Sneaker
Rated as a top travel shoe by USA today, the Taos Star has stellar style. With a lace-up closure, rubber outsole, and soft textile lining, you can be sure of having a flexible fit with traction for various landscapes.
The washed canvas leather and removable footbed makes these easy to wash and keep them clean. It’s important to note that these run small, so you’ll want to size up at least half a size.
One reader shared, “Taos are awesome. They’re comfy and have great support. My feet were never tired after a day in them.” Sounds like some of the best white sneakers for travel to us! Buy it here!
Cole Haan Grand Crosscourt
Made from classic leather with a cushioned footbed, this Cole Haan Grand Crosscourt II Sneaker is very lightweight and fashionable, sporting a sleek and stylish design. Rubber pods are placed strategically in the outsole for great traction and walkability.
One reader says these are one of the most comfortable white sneakers, sharing, “It is so light that I really enjoyed it in every way!” Buy it here!
Naturalizer Morrison Sneaker
Naturalizer is known for making shoes with comfortable features and a great fit, and these Morrison sneakers are no exception.
Their N5 Contour technology features dual-density cushioning on a patented contoured footbed with arch support. Along with a lightly cushioned tongue and collar, the shoes are made with lightweight and breathable materials for superior comfort and support.
We love the color accent on these shoes, too, and several readers agree. One said, “for what it’s worth, I think I may have found ‘the ones!’
These shoes from Naturalizer have a cushioned footbed and come in a variety of sizes and widths for hard-to-fit feet like mine. At first, I didn’t like the tan with the white, but it’s growing on me–I think it helps prevent the shoe from looking too orthopedic.” Buy it here!
Jibs Slim Slip On Shoes
Jibs slip on sneakers are a HUGE favorite of TFG editor-in-chief Alex. She wears them as her flying shoes often. The slip-on style is easy to take on/off at airports, the Therma rubber sole is strong and flexible, and the natural cork insole wicks away moisture and doesn’t retain odors.
Another great feature is the perforated upper is 100% real biodegradable-leather, so they’re environmentally friendly! They truly are perfect for travel, as they support feet and they look chic too! One wearer says, “Love these shoes—incredibly comfortable and stylish. Will wear them running errands, going for a stroll or for travel, and a night out!” Buy it here!
Skechers Performance Slip-On Sneaker
We’re big fans of Skechers shoes, and these are no exception. The slip-on style is a great alternative for when you don’t want to wear a shoe with laces. The FitKnit structure and breathable mesh make them so breathable and add texture and dimension to a classic and sporty slip-on style.
This style has a generously cushioned footbed and a grippy traction sole, so your feet stay comfortable and in place while walking. As one reader says, “Skechers has a pair of walking white sneakers I’ve had my eye on. The most comfortable sneakers I’ve ever worn are from Skechers.” Buy it here!
Ecco Soft VII
This Ecco Soft VII Fashion Sneaker keeps your feet cool with their comfort fibre system. Stylish and comfortable, these long-laced trainers have a contrasting sole and are crafted for a great fit, making them an optimal walking shoe.
One reader has a pair in multiple colors, saying, “I have this shoe in another color and wanted the gray/black for winter. The shoe has great arch support and cushioning under the ball of the foot.” Buy it here!
Superga Cotu Sneaker
If you’re a reader of Travel Fashion Girl, you know how much we love Supergas. They definitely get our vote for the best white sneakers for travel but only if you do not suffer from foot issues as they offer zero support. They’re most recommended for minimal to moderate walking such as leisurely seaside or cruise vacations.
One reader says, “I love my Supergas. They match everything,” and another added, “These are very comfortable.” These shoes are also great for people with wide people. One reader shared, “I have a wide toe box and the Supergas had plenty of room.” Buy it here!

FitFlop Rally Sneaker
We’ve talked about FitFlops before, but usually we’re mentioning their amazing sandals. However, they also make a great pair of sneakers.
The Rally sneakers features ANATOMICUSH™ technology, which is designed with a single-density layer of anatomically curved cushioning for superior comfort. With a soft and breathable cotton lining and insulated footbed, these shoes will keep your feet dry and warm.
One reader says these are the best white sneakers for travel, sharing, “The most comfortable and supportive of this kind of shoe I have ever tried on or owned. Just wore the suede version for a 6 day conference (at least 11,000 steps a day) with no problem, and I am having foot surgery next week!” Buy it here!
SeaVees Monterey Sneaker
Like Supergas, SeaVees offer a great mix of style and comfort. These shoes feature a superior custom contoured, perforated footbed lined in cotton canvas.
The dual compound rubber outsole provides cushioning so you can walk all day long without feeling any pain in your feet. The outsole also provides maximum grip, so you won’t slip and slide on uneven terrain, and the long-lasting wearability means you can take them around the world with you.
Several readers recommended SeaVees. One reader said, “I am a fan of Seavees. Just ordered a lace up. I have the slip on ones and love them and they have a good arch support.” Another reader chimed in, “I’m a fan of my SeaVees,” with another adding, “I am sold on SeaVees. Buy it here!
Converse Classic Chuck Taylor
Most people have owned Converse at some point and that’s because they’re a classic sneaker. They go with everything including leggings and a tunic or dress. Wear them with a skinny jean (rolled) or a jogger, and you’ll look super trendy cute but age appropriate.
For traveling, add an insole for extra support. They do need to be broken in, and they aren’t ideal for women that need arch support or have back issues. For leather white sneakers, clean them with a washcloth (or baby wipes) and hair conditioner – just the cheap kind from a hotel. Dab on the cloth and wipe to condition the leather while cleaning any mud off the shoes. Buy it here!

Don’t Forget About Gel Inserts!
You can create a soft and comfortable fit in many white sneakers by adding your own padding. Whether they’re boots, heels, flats, or sneakers, add a padded insole to massively increase your comfort.
Even during long promotional modeling gigs where I was required to wear high heels, I survived with specialty insoles for heels like these. For most other closed shoes, like cute black flats, I use a style like these. You can also find a large variety of insoles to meet your needs on Amazon.
