Re: White soles on most Skechers shoes.... really?

I won't buy shoes with white soles either.  Just not interested.

I don't mind white soles on summerl light  shoes ....but on dark winter shoes...no. This has been my complaint for years.

I'm not a fan of white soles on any kind of shoe, unless it's a white shoe. I don't like white shoes, either.

White sole on an althetic shoe not a problem.  I don't care for the accent colors.  I prefer a solid color shoe.

I live is desert of Phoenix  Dust/dirt flying every where.  I could never keep white clean...plus I don't like the look of it.  I wish there would be more of the same color.

I found this on google and it makes sense why there are more white soles on shoes these days...it's all about the money:

 

"Shoes have white soles because it is cheaper to manufacturer the white color rather than adding in different colors. The rubber is made from a softer material, lower in density, contains more air, therefore weighs less and costs less."

First of all, I don't like white shoes. Secondly, I HATE white soles!

I'm glad you mentioned this - I thought it was just me.  The only time I want white soles is on white sneakers.  Otherwise, I want the sole to match the color of the shoe.

I am with you! I just don't like the way the white stands out on darker colors. I have quite a few Easy Spirit shoes that have a dark bottom. I think my foot looks smaller & they don't show every little scuff.
