Re­mem­ber the white sports shoes you wore to school when you had to bat­tle it out dur­ing PT classes? Well, let’s just say, that trend is back, with an adult twist, of course. Bol­ly­wood celebri­ties are sport­ing the trend, and wear­ing white sneak­ers as they travel, or go out for a film pro­mo­tion. We won­der, what’s mak­ing the trend so pop­u­lar even in the tricky mon­soon sea­son.

De­signer Nikhil Mehra says, “So­cial me­dia has helped boost this trend, with celebs flaunt­ing their picks daily.” For de­signer Troy Costa, it’s the clas­sic ap­peal of these sneak­ers that makes the dif­fer­ence. “Since they are a clas­sic pick, you can rarely go wrong with a pair. Wear them with a dress or even a tuxedo and you are go­ing to make a state­ment,” he says. “While wear­ing white sneak­ers in mon­soon can be daunt­ing be­cause your white won’t re­main white once you step out, they re­main pop­u­lar be­cause of the var­ied ways in which they can be styled,” says stylist Vikram Seth.
