These white hi-tops are one of my favourite purchases of last year; I was originally looking for a very similar pair from G-Star, but these have been a more than satisfactory substitute. They are made of white leather, with a white rubber toe and a rubber converse logo on each inner ankle. It’s impossible to keep them as white as they are when you take them out of the box, but the fact that they’re made of leather  means that they are easier to clean than the usual canvas shoe.

I love them because they’re perfect with jeans, and go well with both casual and smarter clothing combos. They also come in black, which are equally cool but I just haven’t taken to quite as much.
