Anyone else hate white on their golf shoes?

I was looking at getting another pair to keep in the trunk and could not find a single in store offering in anything other than full black that didn't have white somewhere on them, almost inevitably on the visible part of the sole. I prefer grey and other neutral tones that can go with pretty much anything I decide to throw on to go practice or to the course, and for some reason this year all the offerings that aren't solid black feature some kind of white detailing.

Do golf companies not understand where golf is played? =p Dirt and grass show up just a wee bit easier on white than they do on colors. On top of being more neutral overall, going with shoes that aren't solid black/don't have white detailing/trim means much less worry about cleaning them after every use.

Maybe I'm just crazy, but even when I'm looking at a limited selection of tennis and casual shoes I can find something along those lines, yet with golf shoes it seems to vary season to season. I think I'll just have to order another pair of what I have now from the end of last year's runs.

    I tend to go with white/grey colors as that tends to match most of my outfits. I've never really had an issue keeping my white/light shoes clean, I wipe them down with a Clorox wipe after each round.

    The only thing I've found stubborn is keeping the Boost foam on Tour 360s clean. Those require elbow grease and a brush to get the dirt out of the foam.

    Imo brown and black don't look as good with shorts so we're stuck with white.

    White colored golf shoes look great but, not really a practical choice for the weather around here.

    Even during the 2-3 months of drier weather in a year, the sprinkler will make the turf soft and will soil the light color. Have you ever tried to clean up the soiled white golf shoes ? One of the dirty work I hate to do.
  • mothonmothon Members Posts: 58 ✭✭
    I am in the same boat. I don't hate white on shoes but I much prefer a darker sole and midsole.

    Only white in my golf wardrobe are a couple short sleeve polos.

    Puma has shoes with no white. Most comfortable shoes I've owned and get many compliments, FWIW.

    My issue is all the white outsoles. Where I live the dirt stains a red hue. Once you go black you’ll never go back to white

    Yeah, not a fan of white soles, as they get dirty quick.  I wipe down my shoes after every round and keep my shoes in good condition, but I'm not scrubbing the soles to keep them a glistening white.  Prefer a sole color that will take on the conditions and not show the dirt after a round.  I have a pair of puma ignite spikeless, grey upper, white sole with orange accents/nubs, and they were discolored after 1 round.  Don't get me wrong, I like the way it (white soles) looks, but not practical IMO!

    Kentwool Tour Low Profile in Natural's a beige/off whiteish color or go with whatever trim color is on the shoe.  I have a pair of Adidas pure 360 ltd and they have silver stripes and grey sole, so grey works too!

    i find it insane. even for sneakers. I wear blacked out dunks and chukka fsb's everywhere. I can probably wear them for another 2 years without them ever looking dirty. any sneakers with white soles look like trash after a month. I don't get it. 

    Same thing for golf shoes. I am currently playing 2 pairs of roshe g's and even after cleaning every day the white soles are browning a little. meanwhile my blacked out tour premieres and lunar commands look fine.

    The only time I wear black shoes is when I'm wearing dress shoes.  Otherwise, I avoid them as much as possible.  I don't know what it is about them, but they just look weird to me with shorts....especially when worn with white socks.  Same opinion with brown shoes. 

    I usually get White shoes with some sort of black or grey accent color on it.  Those tend to match just about everything that I wear.  I have a pair of black golf shoes, but I don't remember the last time I wore them.
