    White shoes with black socks make even the best look like they forgot to bring some of their kit.

    Sorry, that’s just the way it is.

    I have white Sidi... I'd rather have black ones, but that's what was available at the time in Mega fit.

    exactly the same shoes but in a different, cooler, classic colour screams "i don't want to look like a clubbie with absolutely no style whatsoever"

    Sorry, that's just the way it is.

    Whiter than white. Brilliant.

    My actual shoes that I wear more often aren’t fully white though (the piccie has the winter shoes that generally get covered over). They’re these:




    They look realy long. Are you sure they're not clown cycling shoes?

    No, that's in inverse proportion to the size and noisyness of the exhaust pipe on your car.

    I should probably be careful about where I do say that. Describing a cool pair of cycling shoes = fine. Nearly every other context =probably best avoided

    Yep.
    Anything cycle related and white screams "fair weather" unless you are paid to use it. White bar tape, a white saddle, white shorts (which also scream there's my bum crack and there's my penis) and a white bike. I bet MF has the full set.

    Other colours are available. Blue for example.

    Is that a downtube shifter? Not sure if that got covered in the recent BR 'how to change gears' article.

    Yes. And yes, it did, thank goodness - hadn't worked it out, so been using it as a single speed.

    tbf, there isn't a lot cooler than a white aero bike with phat 80s and black everything else, although I could be tempted by white saddle and tape combo.

    I could make it all work and it would be incredibly cool but your average clubbie would just look a right jeff bag.

    the only white kit i own is Fassa Bortolo which is soooo cool its allowed.

    This, this is what's happened to this forum, we can't stay on topic.

    We segwayed from a thread about why this place is a pile of censored to discussing the relative merits if white cycling shoes...

    😉

    And people started flagging posts for no obvious reason

    As said earlier when we were OT.......It's like being in the pub.
    The conversations go all over the place and is all the better for it.
