Lately I've noticed that AJ, Swish and Jermaine are wearing spikes that have a lot of white showing. I always liked them on the Oakland A's players. They are called the "White" Sox anyway, so I thought I'd toss this out here and see what you guys think. I'd kind of like to see it. I'm cool with the black though.

Good God no...no changes to the uniform are necessary.

White shoes look good in football and horrible in baseball.

I think the Bears should go back to white shoes like the 80s. It makes you seem a step faster to the opposition!

I dunno. I'd much prefer we did away with black altogether.:redneck

Yes, they'll go well with the new white belts. It's disco time all over again!

Would you like them to wear white belts to match their white shoes?

The seventies just flashed before my eyes.

... They are called the "White" Sox ...And thus should be wearing white socks, not white shoes.

We have the classiest uniforms in MLB, why would we want to ruin them with white shoes. This is baseball, not tennis.

Black shoes please.
Dye looks like he left his golfing spikes on.
Looks ridiculous.

Meh. The white shoes look alright on Oakland when they're at home. They look ridiculous with the road greys. Doubly so now with the pants-down-to-the-shoetops style that is so prevalent.

Black spikes, black baseball pants, and white knee-high socks for everyone :bandance:

I completely agree on this one; I hate the pants over the shoe tops look. If you want to do the long pants, I believe the team should be standardized.

I think you'd be better served by looking a step slower. Especially in football.

That was Wanny's theory with the Bears. How'd that work out?

And no, I think the A's look ridiculous.

Maybe if we'd moved to Tampa back in the late 80s, white shoes would have been appropriate,

White shoes for the Sox--NO! They look fine on the A's at home, but that's now part of tradition. To echo rustysurf-- fine everybody for that ugly, stupid pants-down-to-the-shoetops stuff! Maybe we should also have our guys' boxers showing and wear their belts mid-globes....

Black stirrups, white sanitaries, black shoes.

The A's can keep the whole white shoes thing, we should stick with black, looks classier.
