White Bucks, Once Taboo,
Enter (Fashion Spotlight '
By CONNIE GORDON
The dollar may be depreciated,
but a buck is still a buck . . . espe
cially now at the University.
Gone are the days when the
lorm "buck" meant a dollar bill.
This term is now being applied
fashion-wise to the white buck
shoes that are now adorning feet
all over the country.
A few years aso, casual white
shoes were considered about as
fashionable as cotton mesh hose
or Cuban heels. With the ex
ceptisn of white and brown and
Ma "k saddle oxfords, no girl
in her right mind would have
aprnared on the street with a
pvr of white shoes.
But, style taste change as fash
Ion dictates. Though loafers and
sadr.les still remain the two major
mainstays in the avrage coed's
casual shoe wardrobe, the new
white bucks arc slowly finding a
Trobably cue of the major
reasons that the shoes have not
attained a greater popularity is
that many girls feel that she
must have "Cinderella" feet to
wear a white shoe. True, after
years of wearing: darker shoes,
white shoes can, shall we say,
emphasize the size of the foot.
But, most coeds find that after
Bettirif used to them, there is
(and I quote a buck shoe owner)
"nothing like them."
One of the big problems con
nected with the white buck shoes
is keeping them clean. Even the
most optimistic coed knows that
