Fashion police ponder the white shoe

White_shoe_1It’s nice to know that in a world of terrorism, unrest and poverty, some people worry about what really matters: Should you or shouldn’t you wear white shoes? As this fashion report shows, the debate is animated, with some purists saying white shoes are only acceptable for brides, nurses and tennis players. Forget tradition, the other side says—go whole-hog and dress all in white, even (gasp!) after Labor Day. Kate Spade has weighed in with this highly insightful and helpful comment: “I don’t know if there are any rules, but I find wearing white shoes in the winter can be tricky.” But she adds, “I do love the idea of a white rubber boot for a slushy winter day.”
