Hermès Added its Spin to the White Sneaker

Even as minimalism ebbs and flows in and out of the trend cycle, the leather white sneaker stands strong as a timeless footwear option. Always the perfectionist, Hermès has released an updated take on the classic shoe for Spring/Summer 2020 with its Avantage sneaker. Crafted in premium calfskin leather and lined with a goatskin insole, the ultra-fresh style is stylized with a striped and angular H on the exterior — a subtle way to label-drop that avoids the flashiness of logomania. The spine of the shoe is accented with a contrasting back panel, available in either black, burnt orange, or white. Even though white sneakers are a timeless and reliable option, keeping them clean is another story. So if you’re shoes have gone from white to off-white, it might be time for a crisp new pair.


The Hermès Avantage Sneaker is available now in stores and online now.
