“Damn Daniel, back at again with the white”… Last week the internet did what the internet does best and made a kid wearing all white slip on Vans a legend (and viral sensation) to anyone with a phone and a twitter handle. Though it’s tough to go wrong with some all-white classics from the skateboard company, here are five other all whites that have definitely left their mark. Plus we wouldn’t mind a lifetime supply of each.

Nike Air Force One
It’s an easy one. one of the most classic, recognizable, and comfortable models from the most reverent athletic brands of all time. Getting life time supplies in low or mid’s would be bananas.
Converse Jack Purcell
The ubiquitous Chuck Taylor’s more sophisticated brother, the Jack Purcell is the definition of timeless and the epitome of simplicity over everything. From toddlers to the Grandfathers who fathered the toddler’s, anybody in the world can rock these.
Nike Dunk Low SB Tokyo
Ok so the gum bottom is sort of cheating, but you can’t just throw gum on everything and make it a hit. The thickness and width of the SB style really is what sets this one apart from the others, definitely could see Daniel killing it at school with these. #Backatitagainwiththegumbottoms
Reebok Classic Leather
Perhaps a bit more divisive than any of the above, but whether you’d like to admit it or not, these shoes get the job done. Sneaker heads, dancers, regular o’l folks and kids. You know you’ve seen somebody wearing these, and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere anytime soon.
Adidas Original Stan Smith
There’s something about the white on white version of this O.G “tennis shoe” that just trumps all the other color-ways, begging for everyone’s attention. These are it. The “deconstructed superstar” stands out without being loud. They hold a sense of subtle greatness.
