If you were made in the ’80s, you can probably appreciate the denim jackets, plaid button-downs, and loud patterns that punctuated the delightful decade called the ’90s. But the era’s signature staple—a true sign of a simpler time—would have to be … 🥁🙏 … the classic white sneaker. And we’re amped that vegan white sneakers are popping up everywhere these days!

We love a good comeback story, but not all history needs to repeat itself—using animals to make shoes should be left in the past. So we combed the internet for today’s most stylish vegan white sneakers—not just for kicks but because these leather-free shoes save animals. And because fashion. 💁

Here’s a list of our fave fashion-forward throwbacks:

*Note: These companies cannot guarantee that the glue used in their shoes is vegan. We’ve opted to include them because their products are widely available. The more popular these otherwise animal-friendly shoes are, the more vegan options will be made available in the future.

And there’s more where that came from! This list is just a starting point for all the vegan white sneaks out there—just don’t let any leather or suede sneak into your closet. Always check labels and descriptions when you’re shopping.

Use our handy guide to make sure you’re not supporting animal abuse when you buy shoes.
