​​​​​I know pros like white shoes, but they have people taking care of all their gear unlike a schlub like me who has never bothered to do more than half-heartedly try to wipe grease and dirt streaks off any of my non-black shoes. I've found a pair of top-end road shoes at significant discount that promise to solve some issues with what are my current best pair, except they're only in white. Seems like it's wisest to pass, but let's hear any opinions on the contrary.
They were on sale for cheap, in white only. My size almost never goes on sale, because it's too popular. If my feet were tiny, or huge, I could buy all kinds of colors.
