Sometimes a trend comes along that both intrigues and intimidates me. White footwear has been one of those.
Modern White Mules
I first noticed white shoes popping up Pinterest and some style blogs about a year ago. I thought they added something fresh, crisp and a little unexpected to a denim look. So I tried on a few pairs at the time, but the pumps just looked too 80’s and the loafers and oxfords were too reminiscent of golf shoes.
Fast forward a few months…and I’m now seeing more pointed toe mules (and ankle boots) in white and ivory. These styles feel current rather than nostalgic.
I love that angled heel on the style shown in the collage above. Cool and modern.
I like the criss-cross detail on these, and they have a cushioned footbed. Available in N, M, and W widths too.
This pair has classic loafer styling and textural detail.
For those who prefer ivory to white, these have a feminine kitten heel and are quite comfortable with soft leather and a nicely padded insole.
And if you just can’t with the mules, here’s a cute croc-embossed chelsea boot that’s not too Go-Go Boot Literal (and it’s currently 40% off).
True, a white or ivory finish may be more prone to scuffing and be higher maintenance. A water- and stain-proofing spray may help.
What do you think? Would you consider adding any white footwear to your wardrobe, or are they strictly no-go?
