* Time to put away those white sneakers till spring
* Gray and silver have a tendency to hide dirt and grime
* Pick up one of Kanye’s latest sneakers (yes, they’re still available)

It’s winter and your all-white kicks should probably be put away for the season. And in their place, should be any one of these wonderfully stylish and comfortable off-white sneakers, mostly in a shade of gray. Why? Because it’s always hard to tell when gray or silver objects are dirty, like your car, and the same goes for sneakers. Plus fashion trends come and go and it’s probably to give those white sneakers a little break too, if you want to stand out from the crowd.

1. Adidas Cloudfoam Advantage Clean Sneaker

There’s no hype around these Adidas – just a pair of comfy kicks in a neutral gray suede. They comfortable and will go with everything from gym shorts to a suit.

2. Nike Tennis Classic Suede

With a gum bottom and clean upper done up in suede, the Nike Tennis Classics are just that: classic. And at nearly half off, you might want to double up.

3. Vans Old Skool

With a mostly canvas upper on the quintessential SoCal sneaker, if you don’t already own a pair of Vans, these are ones worth adding to the rotation. The light gray color is a solid upgrade from basic black or white.

4. Nike SB Check Solar Suede

Pulled from Nike’s skateboarding line, SB, the Check Solar features a padded collar for added comfort and extra stitching for added durability, making these a pair you can beat with reckless abandon.

5. Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star ’70

This sneaker needs no introduction or any context. You want them or you don’t. Add this pair to your rotation too and beat it up and scuff if up. It’ll look better that way.

6. Allbirds Men’s Wool Runners

Throw em in the washer. Throw em on without socks. Wear them comfortably all year long. If these are attributes you’re looking for in a pair of shoes, then you should consider Allbirds’ merino wool Runners. This unisex style works for almost everyone.

7. Adidas Originals Tubular Shadow Knit

There’s a certain appeal to Kanye’s Yeezy Boost line of Adidas, but they aren’t exactly the easiest sneakers to purchase. The Tubular Shadows on the other hand are much easier to acquire without all the fuss.

8. New Balance 247 Suede

The 247 was a brand new model released by New Balance in 2017 with one purpose: all-day comfort. It doesn’t look half bad either in this tonal gray with a suede upper.

9. Clae Bradley

Here’s another take on the (tennis) court sneaker. Dubbed the “Bradley” from LA-based sneaker brand, Clae, it promises an upgraded take and feel on the silhouette with a modern cupsole. Get it in gray to stand out from everyone else.

10. Adidas Yeezy Powerphase

Just how much sway does Kanye have over the masses? He managed to turn an old Reebok model into one of the season’s must-have sneakers. It now comes with Adidas branding, of course.
