Men’s Style Tips: White Trainers and Colourful Socks

Picture the scene. It’s 1992. Your mother hands you a box. You open it. Brand new white trainers. They are perfect. Too perfect … You immediately put them on, head outside and scuff them up, returning only when they look almost as worn as your old ones.

But the days of the beat up old sneaker are no more. Today, nothing beats the box-fresh, crisp bright of a pair of pristine white trainers. And nothing goes with white trainers like stylish socks that pop.

Need inspiration? Our sock stylists have rounded up some of our favourite looks with white kicks.

Pop and block

If in doubt – block it. Bold, block colours always look sharp with white sneakers. Our signature Simply Sartorial range comes in an array of colours – from our iconic East India Saffron or bold Midnight Blue to more subtle Skye Blue or Lavender. Take your pick.

The shorts of it


It’s no secret that we love socks and shorts. And white trainers were made for shorts. Edmond has styled up his tailored shorts with a blazer and shirt., choosing the subtly patterned Bond St. Herringbone in Yellow for a subtle, tonal pop. Prefer to be topless with shorts – try our Simply Trainer collection for trainer socks with a bit of pop.

Double Denim

This is double denim done the right way. Indigo jeans and denim Marls. In fact, the Marl Collection, with its cool twisted yarn, is made to be worn with jeans and white trainers.

Modern Masterpiece

We love how the white trainers add a contemporary edge to the classic chinos and shirt combo here. The beautiful jewel tone of Simply Sartorial in Dusk Blue adds a sophisticated colour pop.

Monochrome Magic

Sometimes making a statement is as black and white as, well, black and white. The timeless Spot of Style in Classic Black sandwiched between the white trousers and trainers really stand out for a polished but modern monochrome look.
