I know it is different now, but I still cannot wear white shoes after September 1 until Easter. How about you?

I don't know that I even own any white shoes...if I did, I would still feel awkward about wearing them after Labor Day (not necessarily Sept 1)...Easter? I was always taught Memorial Day....

I am curious what part of the country you are from. Where I lived it was all right to wear white sandals as Easter shoes and anytime thereafter. Some parts of the country are colder than we are here in North Carolina. Could there be a North/South division on the starting date for white shoes? The Easter may have just been a local rule for us. I find that interesting. We usually did not wear white dresses until Mother's day through Labor day and then Winter white from Thanksgiving until Valentine's Day. I wonder who made these rules?

I wear white year-round. Thankfully we don't have these rules in LA.

I think it's a generational thing too. I don't think many younger people even care. I've heard remnants of the idea that you 'can't wear this or that' after whatever holiday but I've never really followed it.

Old biddies with too much time on their hands. Most of them are deceased now. Wear what you want, when you want.

All over but my upbringing was Midwest....white was for summertime ie Memorial Day through Labor Day....To this day though, I'm not a huge fan of white shoes so I don't really go through the "should I or shouldn't I" dilemma....I know the "rules" don't really apply anymore but it's hard to shake what you've heard all your life...Not to mention the whole white-white vs "winter" white thing.....

Other than tennis shoes (for actually playing tennis in), I've never owned any all-white shoes.
