There's an old fashion rule that states one shouldn't wear white after Labor Day. There are several theories about the origin of the rule, some historians believing it traces back as far as the late 1800s, when rich wives are said to have used it as a form of classism. Fortunately, sneakerheads don't concern themselves with century-old style guidelines.

Labor Day is Monday, and we're celebrating the holiday a little early by imagining 10 sneakers (and cleats) in all-white. Known for having vibrant or boldly blocked uppers, see how these styles hold up in nondescript colorways and let us know which pairs you think turned out the best.
