Guys, I find the white shoes are far better with shorts which we here in southeastern Texas wear for over 9 months a year. I have the brown, black, and my MyJoys maroon with black shield tips for wear with slacks, and occasionally with shorts just to mix it up. For my purposes, I cannot have too many whites.
I'm with 'ya pulp! The majority of my Icons (I now have 9 pair) are white base because these go with shorts easier than the solid colors. And like you, I also have several pairs that are perfect for wearing with slacks.
