It turns out Grandpa isn't the only one rocking white kicks.
Wearing white on your feet has become so universal, it's almost impossible to go anywhere without seeing these shoes.
Despite their lack of color, white shoes make a huge style statement.
Every shoe has a story behind it. Some people keep their kicks squeaky clean while others prefer to scuff up their shoes.
The shoes tell the story of the wearer; we just have to listen.
We chased down real NYC street feet to unveil just how totally kickass wearing white can be.
