White sneakers are the MVP of your footwear arsenal. Day or night, work or weekends, fresh white kicks with a minimalist design have the versatility to be donned for all occasions. And unlike the ridiculously clunky, overly-hyped styles worn by the young sneakerhead set, sleek white sneakers look good on men of all ages.

Heres the thing: there are endless white sneaker options on the marketand I would know; having tested almost all of them for Mens Health (tough life, I know). Call me a sneaker addict, but my closet is stocked with more white sneakers than I can count. With a tiny New York City apartment, Ive been forced to curb my craving for new kicks, but when a new release comes along that catches my attention for more than a hot minute, I know I need to get my hands on a pair. Thats where the new limited-edition Miansai x Fila Targa sneaker comes in.

Like all things 90s, Filas Disrupter style has had a major comeback in recent years, but the Targa is a much more timeless silhouette from Fila thats appealing to any guy.

Whenever I hear that a sneaker brand is releasing new version of a classic sneaker style, my first thought is usually that if its not broken, why fix it? However, this collaboration not only puts a fresh twist on the retro style, but it honors the Targa by only making small (but mighty) design tweaks that simply elevate it for easy, modern stylesomething to be expected from the jewelry brand thats known for its minimalist-yet-special designs.

The combination of design teaks that are signature to Miansailike the maritime grade rope laces and silver screw-cuff detailingalong with the rich textural mix of suede and leather make the Targa look seriously expensive. Most pearly white sneakers can feel tarnished with the smallest scuff, but in off-white leather and a classic gum sole, these cool kicks will only look better with more wearand thats exactly what a guy should look for in his everyday sneaker.

Im always on the hunt for great basics and really wanted to design a sneaker that fit my personal style, which is timeless over trendy, says Michael Saiger, founder and creative director of Miansai jewelry. Ive always said that Miansai is designed for the guy that doesnt wear jewelry, so this was kind of similar in the sense that I wanted something that anyone could relate to. They are the sneaker equivalent to a white T-shirt for meperfect for casual, every-day dressing.

And like a great white T-shirt, these sneakers can be worn anywhere. Like Art Basel, where I took these bad boys for a spin. Its the time of year when Miami, Florida is taken over by the glitterati and "it" crowd of the art scene for an entire week, so you can imagine that requires packing the most stylish footwear in your closet. And let me tell you, these understated sneakers held their own with the fashion-crowd footwear. From my all-black-everything urban armor to my casual-cool nautical attire, these sneakers looked damn good with everythingI wore.

Many more fresh sneaker styles are bound to make their way to my desk at work before spring time, but I can already tell these Targa kicks will be my go-to for the warm weather season. It might be winter now, but this limited-edition release will be gone by the last snowfall, so nows the time to score the only white sneakers youll need. If youre into sneakers as much as I am, it might just save you some space in your closet, too.
