E8 Tells Us To (Finally) Ditch Those White Sneakers

There's no denying that white sneakers dominated the footwear scene this past year. In fact, the staple hue was so popular, both Kanye and Rihanna designed their own take on the style.

After 12 months of white athleisure-inspired designs, the shoewear scene is ready for something new, something innovative, and something decidedly less ivory. Luckily, U.K.-based E8 by MIISTA is here to help us make the transition. Focused on the idea of breaking the (somewhat boring) cycle of uniformity we create with our everyday wardrobe essentials, the brand is cranking out some unique shoes—featuring sequins, embroidery, and every kind of stud. Ranging in style from witchy heeled boots to kitschy sneakers that would look at home on the runway, the line quells the idea that white sneakers are your only go-to shoe option.

The collection will fit any cool girl's preferences—it's all about mixing style with one's own individuality and, of course, a little bit of comfort. E8 proves that you don’t need to choose one over the other.

So, come on, ditch those white sneakers and explore your untapped diverse footwear tastes. Click through the slideshow to check out the latest styles, now available at NYLONshop.
