Maxim | A First Look At The Greats Bab Low Style

White sneakers are a summer staple: grab a cheap pair of canvas all white lace-ups in May, throw them out at the end of summer. As an ode to the seasonal icon,  Ryan Babenzien talks to us about getting his first pair of all-white sneakers at age 11, and how they still dominate his collection today.
“I definitely remember my first pair of all white — we used to call it white on white— sneakers. I had this pair of white on white Adidas Superstars, or shell-toes. I was about 11-years-old and they were expensive. The shoe was like really popular but not in all white. Most people had it in white with black stripes but I became obsessed with getting this all white pair; I liked the fact that I was the only kid in my school that had a pair."
