In a post-Stan Smith world, white sneakers have taken over the sidewalks. After all, white sneakers pair well with everything in the closet: monochromes, neutral tones, and even a dapper suit!
Their versatility makes them a must-have in any wardrobe, especially if you’re gunning for that hypebeast aesthetic that’s all the rage now. To get in the action, head to STAR 360’s flagship store at Suntec City West Wing (near Convention Center) and take your pick from over 100 models from brands like Nike, PUMA, and adidas. We’ve sussed out 9 sneakers so that choosing your solemate will be yeezy as 1, 2, 3.
- For Him -
1. adidas Deerupt Runner
Those on Team #fitspo will be familiar with the pain of lugging around a pair of workout shoes and a pair of “going out” shoes every time you’ve made plans post-exercise. To eliminate this mafan-ness, get the adidas Deerupt Runner ($170) which is covered in ultra-flexible mesh, so you’ll have added cushioning when you run on a track or for the bus.
Since the shoes are versatile, you can pair them with athletic wear like shorts and a basic tee, and still look presentable enough for a lepak session.
2. Spingle Move SPM-105
Sure, stylish shoes are pleasing to the eyes but comfy shoes? Those are pleasing to my feet aka the ones doing the heavy work. To get that perfect match of style and comfort, spring for the made-in-Japan Spingle Move SPM-105 ($289) which is exclusive to STAR 360.
The shoes are handmade wholly from calf leather which is famous for its durability, and softness. So you could get a mileage of up to 5 years with just this one pair, making it a great investment.
But let’s talk about now. Since these shoes are more smart-casual, complete the look with long pants that have an earth-tone, and a white dress shirt to make the kicks stand out even more.
3. adidas Tubular Doom Sock Primeknit
The mark of a hypebeast is a pair of shoes with thick outsoles to give the beast his swagger. If you’re looking to stand out from the pride, get the adidas Tubular Doom Sock Primeknit ($170) which has a tyre-inspired outsole - a design unique to adidas. For those who have trouble tying their laces fast, these shoes will cut their prep time by half as they have a soft-knitted upper which makes them stretchable enough to just slip your feet in.
Of course, to put the hype in the beast, be sure to complete your ensemble with a pair of joggers, with stripes running down the side, and a hoodie.
4. Patrick Puger
A lil bit of monochrome never hurt anyone but if you’d like to add some contrast to your white shoes without going full My Chemical Romance, the Patrick Puger ($249) - which is exclusive to STAR 360 - balances just the right amount of blacks and grays.
This juxtaposition of colours makes it perfect for adding some sophistication to your streetwear. So you can refine the classic tee and jeans combo by topping it off with a long coat. These made-in-Japan shoes also have extra cushioning, so you can strut the streets in comfort.
5. PUMA Match 74 Aran FM
If you’re a traditionalist who prefers classic, pared-down sneakers, the PUMA Match 74 Aran FM ($170) will be right up your alley. The shoes have a clean silhouette which makes them perfect for casual, everyday use.
The shoe’s design incorporates elements of classic tennis shoes like the small holes on the side and a stripped cable knit tongue, reminiscent of tennis wristbands.

6. Patrick Punch Pop 17
We all have 2 sides to our personalities - a fact that’s hard to bring forth in our clothing as we either dress one way or another. If you’re someone who has a cheeky side beneath the innocent exterior, the Patrick Punch Pop 17 ($269) - designed by STAR 360 - is perfect for letting that duality shine through.
An embroidery of someone winking tops the toe cap which adds a ton of personality to these conservative shoes.
To reflect that in your outfit, incorporate multiple layers in unique ways. For example, you could wrap your flannel shirt around your waist, and top it off with a cap and cardigan to instantly achieve an edgier look.
7. adidas Prophere
If you’re constantly spamming IG with #gameoftones posts, the adidas Prophere ($180) will give you additional ammo for the next 2 months. As you marvel at the shoe, you’ll notice intricate details like the embossed embroidery, and the pops of colour in the fabric which create a mélange effect.
To give this beauty the attention it deserves, top off your outfit with a dark bomber jacket.
8. PUMA Basket Heart Patent
Glossy shoes always add pizzazz to a boring outfit but it’s hard to find one that isn’t a ballerina pump or oxford. Well, if you’re up for a fresh new look, the PUMA Basket Heart Patent ($139) will achieve just that with its glossy finish and hugeee lace.
But you don’t need to dress loudly to match up to these loud shoes. Just wear a plain white tee with joggers, and you’ll effortlessly achieve the hypebae look.
Pro tip: Wear red joggers to match the red aglets of the shoe.
9. Nike Air Max Thea
Fun fact: ladies’ shoes are a lot narrower than men's shoes. While this helps their shoes achieve a stylish, contoured look, it usually comes at the expense of comfort as there’s no space left for cushioning. Well, Nike Air Max Thea ($159) solves that problem by having a foam sole with Air Max technology, making the shoes heavily-cushioned but still light.
To get the most out of this cushioning, use Thea as the base for your athleisure outfit as you swap out your joggers for jeans after spin class.
