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?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's rather fashion or style related.

  • 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.

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