White Boxing Shoes: 7 Stylish Choices Perfect for the Ring

White boxing shoes were quite a popular choice among the great boxers in some of their most important fights.

I don’t want to go too far from the present, and I will give you examples of fights from 1980 to 2020 in which boxers chose this type of item in their outfit.

Let’s start, shall we?

  • 1980: Muhammad Ali vs. Larry Holmes – both Larry and Muhammad chose to wear white boxing shoes
  • 1987: Sugar Ray Leonard vs. Marvelous Marvin Hagler
  • 1991: George Foreman vs. Evander Holyfield
  • 1997: Mike Tyson vs. Evander Holyfield (rematch) – Evander wore white boxing shoes. Mike Tyson appeared in the same outfit he wore throughout his career: black boxing shorts and black boxing shoes.
  • 1999: Lennox Lewis vs. Evander Holyfield
  • 2017: Anthony Joshua vs. Wladimir Klitschko – Anthony Joshua went even further and matched his boxing shoes with white boxing gloves
  • 2019: Anthony Joshua vs. Andy Ruiz Jr.
  • 2020: Anthony Joshua vs. Kubrat Pulev – where Anthony again surprised us in an elegant and white boxing outfit

With all that information in mind, let’s take a look at my top choices of white boxing shoes.

1. White Boxing Shoes for Wide and Flat Feet

It is truly a struggle and daunting task to find a good pair of boxing shoes for those with wide or flat feet.

Most boxing shoes offer the snug fit they should offer. But some of them have a toe box that is too narrow, which results in a poor fit that puts a lot of pressure on the toes.

Let’s be honest – you are no longer in the mood to train when your toes are in pain.

But don’t despair. There are still some great white boxing shoes for wide and flat feet on the market. For example, the Adidas brand is one of the most loved by those with wide feet.

1.1 Adidas Mat Wizard Hype White

With impressive quality, these white Adidas boxing shoes can be worn by both men and women with wide feet.

Although perfect for wide feet, you should know that they offer a perfect snug fit. They don’t strangle your feet, but they also don’t let them move around, so you do not get blisters from friction.

Having a lightweight, you won’t even feel them on your feet.

The mid-top design does not make you uncomfortable when you move and offers you enough ankle support so that you do not injure yourself.

The material is flexible, and the mesh offers breathability, which does not allow sweat to collect in the shoe. The grip is also decent for shooting and sprawling.

1.2 TITLE BOXING Speed-Flex Encore Mid White Boxing Shoe

The Title Speed-Flex Encore is a mid-top boxing shoe whose weight you’re sure to appreciate. These white Title boxing shoes are so light that in moments of focus, you will feel like you’re barefoot.

The toe box is wider than most other shoes on the market. This feature and the sock-like fit are pretty cool for people with wider feet. Seriously, these boxing shoes offer quite a lot for their low price.

You can definitely use them for sparring, conditioning, as well as mitt work. There are enough sizes available to satisfy both the youth category and adults.

I must say that if the sole had a grippier texture, these shoes would have reached perfection.

1.3 ASICS Men’s Aggressor 4 White

Although those in the boxing community believe that Asics is increasingly making boxing shoes as narrow as possible, these Aggressor 4 are praised by all as “the best Asics shoes for wide shoes on the market”. I also agree. They really do a very good job when it comes to accommodate wider feet.

Great for youth and adults, these white Asics boxing shoes have a slightly higher price than the other two options. But the price is justified by the quality and features they have. Like the ones above, they are extremely lightweight and the mid-top design does not limit your feet’ movement.

They ensure increased support as well as grip. The snug fit is also guaranteed, as well as comfort.

I also have to mention this – don’t be disappointed when you put them on for the first time. Like any other new boxing shoes, they feel stiff at first wear. My advice for you is to try to wear them around the house for a few days. You will see that once they’re broken in, they are really the best.

2. White Boxing Shoes for Beginners

2.1 Adidas Unisex-Adult Hog 4 White Boxing Shoe

The Adidas Hog 4 boxing shoes are a fantastic pick for those just starting out. The price is not really low, but not exaggerated either.

I know that sometimes as a beginner you are not really willing to invest a small fortune in your first boxing shoes. But sometimes $20-30 can make a big difference. You must also take into account that the more comfortable your feet are, the more enjoyable your training will be.

The materials of these Adidas boxing shoes are superior and ensure great durability. They stand the test of time and withstand even the most challenging training sessions. Their expertly tapered design provides a snug and secure fit that is what both novice and experienced boxers look for.

The high-top style makes sure that your ankle has enough support. At the same time, it allows you to be fast and agile when pivoting in the ring.

Inside, the shoes have enough padding that delivers a cushioning feel. However, the toe area has more padding than the heel area.

The sizes are quite suitable, it depends on the type of foot you have. What I would suggest to you is for wider feet to choose a size or half of a size larger. But, if you have narrow feet, do not buy any size up or down.

2.2 CHENPENG White Boxing Shoes

Another option for those who are just starting out in boxing is these Chenpeng boxing shoes.

Made from synthetic, they have an ethylene vinyl acetate sole that gives you enough grip and stability for all the quick movements.

They have the most common features like any other boxing shoes. They are lightweight, durable, and breathable.

3. White Boxing Shoes for Grip

3.1 ASICS Men’s Matflex 6 White Boxing Shoes

The Asics Matflex 6 boxing shoes are my go-to recommendation for those who are looking for grip. And here I’m not talking about “enough” or “a good amount of” grip. I am talking about a super grip.

Seriously, the amount of grip these shoes offer is insane. They grip so well even on an area with cement or concrete, but also on floors and carpets.

This traction and grip are essential in any boxing fight when the boxers need to pivot or throw powerful punches. Although it is a good thing, you have to be careful because sometimes too much grip can put more pressure on your feet, especially on your knees. Also, the grip can limit your movement, preventing you from moving normally. All I’m trying to point out is to be careful that your feet don’t get caught on the surface and hurt yourself.

Apart from the grip, these Asics boxing shoes have a mid-top cut that promotes freedom of movement but also ankle protection. They provide a barefoot-like experience in the ring.

The ethylene vinyl acetate sole is flexible but not too much in the arch. The laces are secured by a slit in the tongue of the shoes, preventing various accidents.

These Asics Matflex 6 are true to size if you have narrow feet. If you have wider feet, you should go a size up.

4. White Boxing Shoes for Ankle Support

4.1 Ringside Diablo White Boxing Shoes

The Ringside Diablo boxing shoes offer a great balance of affordability and quality. Even with a low-top design, they help enormously with ankle support.

The patent leather vinyl finish maintains their shape and durability. Even after long wear, they will not give out. You won’t see any damage.

By wearing these shoes, you can experience improved ankle support, which enables quick and easy pivoting and turning without any stress on your ankles.

You will have fun making solid and swift turns with these shoes on.
