The riders in the Tour de France all wear WHITE bicycle shoes. Why is everyone with white? Is that a rule in the Tour?

  • Its about Fashion not function. Today its white, tomorrow who knows, pink? – mattnz Jul 27 '19 at 21:31

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's rather fashion or style related. – Carel Jul 28 '19 at 14:15
  • I agree with closing this. StackExchange sites in general focus on practical questions that can be answered. Opinion-based questions are a much better fit for Reddit. For example, /r/velo deals with competitive cycling, and I bet someone would render an opinion there. Alternatively, you could also try /r/bicycling. – Weiwen Ng Jul 28 '19 at 15:45

They don't. Here are some links to examples:

You can see some blue ones, yellow ones, orange ones, black ones, purple ones, etc.

    And probably the odd guy wearing two different ones. ;-) – Carel Jul 28 '19 at 20:51
