I think that there are *some* white heels/shoes, but mostly I say nay...

I like those pics from SATC. Anyway I have 2 pairs of white shoes - one flat and the other heels.

I love white shoes, the ones I have are my babies
I do't know who I do it, but my white shoes never gets dirty.

Btw, I love the Chanel ankle boots Carrie is wearing.

I agree w/ Plastic's Wife.

Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of white shoes, but there are exceptions to the rule. SJP, for example, looks fab in hers. I think it just depends on the specific shoe and the rest of the outfit. All about styling. They can easily be done wrong and, therefore, are they're just more risky...

What is the big deal about white shoes?!? I didn't realize people had such strong opinions about them. I like 'em. Unless they're ugly. Just like any other shoe.

so when you wear the white shoes what do you do about your legs - do you wear tights or no tights? Thats my problem with all light coloured shoes. the Tights Issue.

no tights...
looks good with a straight knee length denim skirt and a shrunken blazer
(i have a grey one i like)and a pale pink top

here's a bad pic that i took only for myself..
trying to work out this vest ...
but i kind of like the all white thing...

edit-
just remembered another pair of viintage white pumps i have from the 80's-very pointy toe with a kitten heel(faux croc texture)
i've worn that with all blk(even black tights) and a white cropped boxy jacket from thimister...a more 'edgy' look...
but still sort of understated...

very nice softgrey - like the skirt & vest thingy.....its wearable broken bride I think in its sentiment.

you are lucky your legs are a nice colour - I would literally look like a ghost in that outfit. LOL

..goodness soft----you're not in black or navy...
just kidding girl....but that ensemble looks fantastic....such a nice suprise..!

i own 2 or 3 pairs of white shoes
have never thought much about it....other than keeping them clean, of course, which is the hardest part..

both are flats...one very crisp looking...sharp
the others are more sporty...round-toe...with a black velcro strap across the top of the foot....scandinavian looking, to me

but i wear them both and love them....and never seem to have a problem with them standing out ostentatiously..!

yes i can see pointy flatish shoes with black tights working well - a bit mod a bit punk.

I have a pair of cream cat face flats but I almost never wear them because of the Tights Issue.

I guess they do, but THE thing people have the most opinions about seem to be bowties in my experience...
