Like many of the others on this posting, I've been wearing these shoes since the 80's and they have never failed me. There are not a whole lot of products you can say that about. The solid white option should be a no-brainer! I buy several pairs at a time and would never switch. Reading the other posts gives me the impression the product loyalty on this item is extraordinary. Why not cater to the loyal consumers that stand by your product? Please bring back the solid white shoe!
