These casual white sneakers are known for being comfortable
Reese Witherspoon is one of those stars who seems like she’s as bubbly IRL as she is on camera playing roles like chatty Madeline Mackenzie on Big Little Lies and ambitious underdog Elle Woods in Legally Blonde. Sure, those characters aren’t exactly the same people, but the 43-year-old brings a specific charm to her roles that also carries over into her lifestyle pursuits, like with clothing brand Draper James or her Hello Sunshine Book Club. It’s easy to want to emulate Reese’s sunny persona, and luckily, she lets us in on enough of her life so that we can at least heed her style cues.
Looking carefree holding a flower-packed bicycle, Reese recently showed off a late-summer outfit featuring a shoe brand known for its ultra comfortable designs. Then, just about one week later, the leading lady posted again wearing the very same brand of shoe.
In both photos, Reese sports a pair of white sneakers from Tretorn, a Swedish shoe brand that’s been adorning feet with cute, functional kicks since 1891. The subtle details on the first pair, the Hayden Sneaker ($90; amazon.com) — like the green back panel and patterned laces — add pops of flair without becoming distracting or clashing with other pieces of her outfit.

Just like your wardrobe could use a revamp for fall, the contemporary shoe gives the classic, white-canvas look a refresh with those dashes of color and suede and leather overlays. To ensure your shoes are as sturdy as they are stylish (and comfy enough to bike in, like Reese), Tretorn uses rubber soles, a cushioned collar and tongue, and removable cushioned insoles. Dress up the sporty look like Reese did in a lightweight dress — hers is the Draper James Seersucker Ruffle Shirt Dress ($80, orig. $115 ; draperjames.com) — or pair it with your favorite jeans and white t-shirt for a laid-back coolness.
Reese’s second choice of Tretorn shoe is another subtle update to the timeless white sneaker look.
Buy It! Tretorn Rawlins Sneakers, $75; amazon.com
The brand’s Rawlins style ($75; amazon.com) — which she’s worn with a Draper James’s denim Belted Sleeveless Chambray Ruffle Shift Dress ($59.98, orig. $98; draperjames.com) and a pair of laid-back cropped jeans and a white eyelet button-up shirt — is a retro sporty look featuring the same comfortable rubber soles as the Haydens for maximum wearability. While Reese appears to be wearing the shoe in vintage white and seaweed, the Rawlins comes in several colors, like white with red and blue detailing ($74.95; zappos.com) and a muted grey, blue, red, and yellow combination ($63.75, orig. $75; zappos.com).
Tretorn has tons of colorways and patterned styles on sites like Zappos, Nordstrom, and Amazon, so you’re guaranteed to find a sneaker look from the timeless brand to step up your wardrobe like Reese as we transition into fall. Add a pop of plaid to an otherwise understated outfit with Tretorn's Nylite 28 Sneaker ($70; nordstrom.com), a pinch of leopard with Tretorn's Nylite 25 ($85; zappos.com), or a little lift with Tretorn’s Nylite Bold Platform Classic Sneakers ($79.95-$80; amazon.com). If Reese stands by — or technically in — this brand, so do we!
