    A white shoe with not much ventilation, more leather... eg barricade IV or a black shoe with good ventilation such as black adidas feathers?

    Say on a hot day... which choice would keep your feet cooler?

    I would say anything with mesh panels. I guess youre getting at the colour thing with black holding more heat than white....

    I believe thats an old wives tale....well, my old wife goes on about it so I guess it must be :)

    So I would say, leather over synthetic uppers and mesh panels.

    This is just an opinion...I live in England so scorching hot days are not a something that crop up very often.

    If all things were equal, the white shoe would be cooler. However, if you are comparing a black shoe with really good ventilation, to a white shoe with next to no ventilation, then the black shoe would almost certainly be better.

    If this a a serious concern for you, why not go with a white shoe with good ventilation?
