White sneakers have a moment and the golf world is taking hold.

White sneakers have a moment. You are clean. They are easy. You dress an elegant outfit, but enhance a casual look. And they look good on everyone.

The golf world is no different. Gone are the days of the one-option saddle shoe lifestyle. Of course, stick with the old school look if that’s what you prefer. But golf brands are increasingly targeting audiences inspired by other sports or streetwear, and white kicks fall under that umbrella.

With that in mind, here are my five favorite white golf shoes that are available to you right now:

1. Adidas Stan Smith primegreen without spikes

These are limited editions, they did not go on sale until May 1st and will surely go quickly. Oh, and the kilt is removable.

2. Ignite Puma

I’m a fan of the Puma Ignite line in general, so there are several iterations of this sneaker that you might really like. Check them all out. These are athletic in style and performance, which means you’ll have a jump in your crotch when you get them on the course.

Puma IGNITE PWRADAPT leather 2.0

$ 149.99

The sleek Puma IGNITE PWRADAPT Leather golf shoe offers enormous comfort, plenty of support and excellent traction on the golf course. The PWRADAPT outsole starts underneath and is equipped with 3D pods that allow the spikes to move independently and provide excellent three-dimensional traction. The golf shoe is embedded in the center and also features an IGNITE foam midsole that provides energy return, responsive comfort and stable cushioning with every step and during the golf swing. In addition, the textured, ribbed leather upper has a strategically placed PWR frame to provide support for a snug fit in high-traffic areas. This is really a shoe that has the look of a semi-casual sneaker, but underneath is packed with technology to make you feel comfortable playing your best golf.

3. Ecco S-Lite

Ecco has come a long way in developing comfortable and always stylish shoes. But the S-Lite has another separating factor: It is guaranteed to be the lightest shoe on this list.

Ecco S-Lite

$ 160

The S-Lite is the lightest golf shoe ever developed by ECCO. It combines perforated yak leather with the ultra-light DynaKnit E-DTS outsole. The outsole features a wider heel base for improved stability during turns and transition, while remaining extremely flexible and durable in optimal conditions. A high-quality yak leather upper material uses a diamond shape embossing for a light feel and comfortable breathability. The molded heel cap and inner toe made of leather as well as the side reinforcements improve your stability during turns. A FLUIDFORM midsole and wing wrap ensure a good balance.

A clean, classic white sneaker. You can go 18 and wear this true linkswear number to dinner afterwards.

True Linkswear TL-01

$ 140

True presents the TL-01, a stylish shoe for the transition from the office to the course and everywhere in between. TL-01 is designed with features that include lightweight construction, high quality nappa leather that molds to your foot like a well-oiled baseball glove over time, zero drop padding that ensures comfortable walking, supportive EVA midsole and a very aggressive cross-resume for excellent performance between the links.

5th Duke of Cosma

If you’re looking for a more edgy, fashionable sneaker that performs on the course and makes a subtle statement, you’ve come to the right place. Duca del Cosma’s Monterosso shoe was one of my favorite discoveries this year.

The Monterosso is proof that a casual shoe can still have its own style. With its full leather upper and matching sole, you will stand out no matter how you wear it.
