Contrary to what Elite Daily bloggers believe, there’s nothing wrong with being basic. In fact, a tour de force of simple white footwear made a strong statement at GDS with clean lines, bold outsoles and quiet sophistication for Spring ’16.
On the athletic end, look for amped-up versions of the classic Van’s slip-on. Think puffy neoprene uppers, shark tooth tread, flatform outsoles and touches of futuristic silver or gold. Smooth white leather and golf-inspired kilties speaks to the classicist, meanwhile white-out versions of work boots may just awaken your inner artist.
For women, the all-white look is pared down even further with simple mules and slides. Suede adds a slouchy, relaxed vibe. White booties, oxfords and sandals with laser cutouts are ready for garden parties, and peep-toe silhouettes call for brightly lacquered toe nails.
