Giveaway : For the most PRACTICAL WHITE sneaker.


In my opinion there’s nothing like a fresh pair of white sneakers.  

But I’ve seen it, you’ve seen it: People who love wearing their fresh white shoes  in places where they SHOULDN’T be worn ie: music festivals, playing sports, to a park with freshly cut GREEN grass.

…and then, about a month later the reality “kicks” in (no pun intended) and its beautiful white canvas gets immediately tainted in scuff marks and stains.



Typically, I see people wearing Keds and Converse shoes made out of canvas or cloth-like material —

I had a pair that I wore them for about 1 month until they got RUINED!  Then I started wondering why the heck people even buy the cloth shoes in the first place!  Yes,  I KNOW some shoes can be put in the washing machine, but honestly, who really wants to do that?  I’d rather just find a more practical shoe that looks the same but can withstand the stains and all I have to do is wipe it down with a Lysol wipe!

So, I went on a quest!


Eventually, after spending a month looking in every sneaker store around Toronto, I found this perfect Ked shoe in Little Burgundy!  Now the reason why I’m sharing this story is because my eyes played a trick on me…when I saw them in the store I was literally a foot away from them and I didn’t notice it was a plastic/leather material…I actually thought it was cloth!

It went down like this:

I noticed there was a pair of black sneakers with a nice gloss finish with the texture I was looking for and I asked the sales rep, “Is there such thing as a white version of this shoe?” and then she looked at me as if I were mentally ill and proceeded to point right in front of my eyeballs!!  It was right next to the black sneakers I was staring at!! I looked like a complete idiot — but a HAPPY idiot. I bought them immediately!


I’ve now had these for about 2 weeks.  I’ve travelled in them, gone walking all over the city and they still look good as new!

So don’t make the mistake I did by buying the cloth shoes — go with the practical material.  You will get a much longer wear out of your shoe and they will just look better overall.  Trust me, you will be much happier in the long run.


The Ked shoe is called “Champion Originals Leather” . They come in black and white.  They are 50 bucks. They’re comfy, clean and go with any casual outfit.  I highly recommend purchasing a pair.

And because I love them so much and want you to have a chance to own a pair too — I’m going to buy a lucky winner a pair of their own.

  1. I am the hugest vans/converse sneaker fan, always in a sneaker when not rocking cute sandals or boots (no heels for this gal)! Anyway, always thought the white converse were to die for but could never bring myself to buy them because of the dirt factor… white is scary! What a cool find! And I am a size 8 🙂

  2. These look so cool! I’ve been looking for something like this for ages. On my second pair of white converse now, due to the amount of dirt that doesn’t wash out. Other than that, they’re good material and last for a good while. I’m a size 10 (U.S)
