By now you probably know how important it is to have a sharp white sneaker in your footwear rotation. They’re probably the most versatile casual shoe you can own. We’ve discussed other styles in the past, and in our latest edition of Worth It, we’re reviewing a new entrant in the minimal white sneaker game, the Low 1 from Oliver Cabell. Tune in and find out if we think these white sneakers are worth it!
Great Design – We loved the clean, minimal design and sleek profile. It has a nice shape that’s reminiscent of another one of our favorites, the Adidas Stan Smith, but with a bit slimmer profile.
Good Materials and Construction – We really liked the high-quality leather and solid construction.
Multiple Colors – We tested the white version but there are a bunch of other versatile color options too.
Good Price – While not cheap at $178, they do compare well to pricier options.
Squeaking – Our main issue with the shoes, and it was a big one, is that they are incredibly squeaky. We tried two different sizes and unfortunately couldn’t figure out what the issue was, but it was very distracting.
Ashley and Dorian: Not Worth It
While we loved the design and quality, ultimately the squeaking was so pronounced that we just couldn’t get on board.

We had to do it, so get ready. Today we’re discussing one of our most, well, controversial topics. Believe us, we’ve got good reasons why these are sneakers that no man should own. Here are 5 Reasons Why Women Hate Jordans.
- They make your legs and feet look really stubby – No matter what type of pants you wear with them, they’re just not flattering.
They make men look immature – The sportiness of these sneakers makes most men look like little boys, a phase you should have grown out of.
They show a lack of financial responsibility – Jordans are expensive and it leads to women wondering how much a man spent on them. We’re also probably wondering what other, more responsible places he probably should have spent that money on.
It’s hard to take you seriously – Similar to point #2, it’s hard to take a man seriously when they’re wearing Jordans. They’re just not something stylish men should wear.
Jordan fans are very passionate/obnoxious – We get it, you love Jordans, and most fans won’t shut up about them. But the truth is, we honestly don’t care.
All this being said…HAPPY APRIL FOOLS! Don’t worry, we actually don’t hate Jordans that much, just make sure you wear them with the right casual items and be aware of point #1 if you’re on the shorter/broader side.
