Here are six of our favourites.
The granddaddy of this movement is the Common Projects Achilles.
It's a luxury leather sneaker that is far more popular than any $410 sneaker ought to be, and it has cemented its status as the obtuse pinnacle of minimal white sneakers. So loved for being completely devoid of branding and having the perfect silhouette, it's hard to say the competition is copying its success since the design is so uncomplicated.
Rancourt is better known for making moccasins than sneakers, but there's no denying they hit it out of the park with their Court Classics last summer.
They're clean and well-made, and reviewers are happy with how well they have held up. It's also worth noting the price point, which can be seen as a budget version of the fashion-forward Common Projects sneakers, as it's only two-thirds of the price for similar quality.
If you don't already have a pair, there's no way you can go wrong.
Jack Purcells are pretty similar to Converse's other offerings, such as the ever-popular All-Star basketball sneaker.
