Do mostly black shoes really make your feet hot or are they just pretty much the same as white?
the same. never had a problem with my black barricades.
Ok, I just don't want my shoes to be burning up if I get the black/gold Accelerators.
In theory the should absorb more heat, but don't know if anyone would notice...Such a small area. Just goes with whatever works for you.
Yeah, for the same shoes, the black ones will be hotter in the sun. There's no question about it. How much of a difference you'll feel is another question.
My main problem with shoes is that my feet sweat a lot and pretty soon the shoes are drenched. I'm just in the habit of wearing white shoes, so I've never tried a pair of black shoes.
Dang it. I just ordered a pair of black/silver accelerators. Great...
ive got a pair of black/gold acccelerators and a pair of white/grey. the black get hotter, but its not a big difference. they're so well ported that its not really a factor. i love the shoes tho
Duh! Black absorbs the most heat. White absorbs the less. What are schools teaching people these days?
I have had 2 pairs of the black/gold accelorator and the heat differential is very minimul in my opinion. The shoes ventilate very well and I think you will be satisfied with them Brett.
They're shoes, it doesn't matter that much. The shoes again, are only your small spot. With new tech, the ventilation could be better, I mean, they wore black shoes at the FO...some pros anyway. Black absorbs everything, while white reflects everything due to colors of light and all that mumbo jumbo,..
Even my supposedly well-ventilated white Breathe Free IIs get soaking wet inside, after just a couple of hours playing tennis in 85+ F. Solution: If you bring more than one racquet to the court, it makes sense to bring extra shoes and socks as well.
i always bring extra socks and shoes
They don't really bother me, but then again, my feet don't sweat....
there is no doubt, that a black shoe is going to be hotter than a white shoe while on the court in the sun....
i have a pair of black shoes and i usually just use them indoor, but one or two times i wore them outside and my feet were on FIRE...it was soo bad that i have never used them outside again, and probably will never buy a black shoe again....
feel the same to me..
No, black shoes wont feel hotter than white shoes. The surface area is too small for it to make a big difference and the ventilation design of the shoes is more important than the colour. Since you'll be moving while playing tennis, cool air will pass over the trainer the same regardless of the colour so the temperature will remain the same.
i have blk/red B4 and havent noticed anything major.... i will be getting a pair of a3 accelerator in blk/orange tomorrow.
The thing that you notice with shoes is not so much the upper color as the sole color. If the outsole is black, then your feet will feel hotter. Definitely a noticeable difference if you're playing on 120 degree hard courts! Other than that though, it black shoes will be theoretically hotter, but only by a little, especially in milder climates.
