When Fall in Canada arrives – with its fickle weather and bursts of rain & chill – sneakers are not usually your best option. And let’s not even talk about white sneakers!

So when I stepped into Toronto’s GEOX flagship store at Yorkdale to pick up a pair of shoes to review, I immediately gravitated towards these Amphibiox sneakers. Because they’re not as simple as they appear!

White Sneakers - Geox Amphibiox

I’m almost embarrassed to admit that this is my first pair of fully white sneakers. I’ve always loved the versatile look, but the thought of how dirty they would get in my hands – err, feet – made me reluctant. Can you imagine stepping inside a puddle wearing fully white shoes? Wait, I think I’ve done that! That’s why my white shoes tend to stay at the back of the closet, safely stored in their respective shoe boxes…

The great features about these GEOX Mayrah Amphibiox white sneakers is that’s they’re slightly off-white, for starters. With their thick but smooth leather exterior, they’re also easy to wipe clean. Not to mention that they’re treated with patented technology that repels water, and keeps your feet warm! And lastly, what differentiates GEOX from other shoe brands: their outsoles are breathable.  Yep, nothing goes in, but air goes out.  I still don’t know how they do it, but I’m glad they do!

This isn’t my first pair of GEOX and my son lives in them, so I can attest to their comfort & durability. These white sneakers in particular are solid on the outside, yet soft & cozy on the inside. I love their unique look most of all, making them a nice deviation from that other far too ubiquitous striped sneaker brand 😉

If you’re looking for more coverage during the winter months, these GEOX sneakers come in a fabulous hi-top puffer version in both white & black. I’m crushing on the black ones for winter too! Love the low version? You can still find the white version in store & via Nordstrom. The burgundy and black sneakers you can find on & offline.

And what makes a light sneaker an easy go-to is that they style well with virtually everything. Seriously, check out my white sneaker styling post for proof! I love the look of a good sneaker with a moto jacket, myself. But I’m biased. I just nabbed this amazing leather trench from Holt Renfrew last month and I’m obsessed with it.

It’s definitely an investment piece, though, so I’ve linked above to some more mildly priced jackets too. It’s great that it’s so different from the other short biker jackets out there & has thus far served me well for Fall. Especially when paired with my new weatherproof sneakers! Because isn’t it great to find quality classics, with an interesting twist?

Would you normally wear white sneakers in the Fall or Winter months?

  1. I should note I’ve been preferential to softer-cushioned shoes this training cycle but it is worth a try to pick a new sneaker now. I will give these waterproof white sneakers Geox a try. Thanks for the post and I’d love to hear your thoughts more.

    • Soft cushioned shoes are a must for me, because I walk a lot. I’m loving these right now!

    • Thanks so much! I do love these shoes and white sneakers are so chic with dark outfits, don’t you think?

    • Hi love, so glad you like it! This has actually become my fall uniform (minus the necklace unless it’s a more special event lol!).

  3. The white looks great! Totally compliments the outfit. I’ve never worn sneakers expect for fitness. I may have to diversify !

    • Thanks so much Christine! Yes, it took me a bit to transition sneakers from my work out outfits to everyday outfits, but once you do you’ll never go back. It’s so convenient to be comfortable all the time (and with the right sneakers, look good too!).

  4. I am totally in love with this entire outfit. The white sneakers go so well with the monochromatic outfit and love the layering.

    • Thanks so much Emily! I like how a lighter sneaker really lifts up a darker outfit. Thanks for stopping by, lady.
