While pink sneakers (as well as buzzy beige) are undeniably having a moment, that doesn’t mean that classic whites are over. In fact, some of the biggest names in fashion seem to be super-inspired by your Stan Smiths—and they’re giving the entire colorless-kicks category a majorly luxe upgrade.

So if you’re all about your summer whites—and finding a pair of shoes with major runway cred that you can wear pretty much everywhere, from your farmers’ market run to your after-hours rooftop bar date—you’re in luck.

And, let’s be honest: You can always use another pair of kicks.

Here are 20 seriously covetable, designer takes on white sneakers that are so worth the splurge.
