White Feet?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Anyone out there have the white foot syndrome? I play golf every Saturday and Sunday and have the whitest feet in the world while the rest of me is pretty tan. Anyone use self tanners or something else to get some color back in those old dogs?

Re: White Feet?

lol. Aww no I got it too!!! Plus one of my hands is lighter I hope it isn't lethal. I hate it, but Id rather be tanned on my parts shown in public than nothing.

Re: White Feet?

My feet are terribly white. I always wear sneakers, I don't like flip flops or sandals. My upper arms are pretty white too.

It's a hazard of the game. I just call em my "Natural socks".

A "golfer's tan" is a badge of honor. Just make sure you take your hat off every once in awhile so you don't get that ugly "white top of the head with a tanned face" syndrome.

My natural socks are doing good down there. At least I wear SPF 85+ on my face, ears and neck. I don't want to risk the tiger forehead. One summer, my ears got so burned that they turned black and it started to peel. Bad experience overall.

I have an epic secret sock tan! It is pretty dorky now that you mention it.

I think I win for the whitest feet in the world. If you look at my feet for more than 10 seconds you will be snow blinded.

Re: White Feet?

I try to combat this by wearing sandals whenever I'm out and not golfing. So far it has worked a little bit, but the more I golf, the more I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle.

Re: White Feet?

Maybe they should sell these in pro shops.

Re: White Feet?

I wish I could actually tan enough to show a difference between my white feet and the rest of me.

I thought I got a tan once, while I was in Iraq. I was feeling pretty good for a few months, then I got to take a real shower, as opposed to baby wipes, and my tan washed off. It was demoralizing.

Re: White Feet?

I definitely have the golfers' tan. I also wear my Speedo flip flops, so when I take my shoes off, I have that secondary tan in the shape of a flipflop. There is surely that white foot though.

Re: White Feet?

Fighting golfers tan is a losing battle. Just submit.

Re: White Feet?

I too am a victim/proud owner of the golfers tan. I kind of ruined it a little bit on vacation last week when I golfed 18 at the Punta Cana Moon Palace Resort in sandals because I wasn't paying to rent shoes. Now I have a combo golfers tan with a slightly darker sandals tan... it is kind of funny to see the 3 levels!

My white feet are whiter than your white feet.

WTF...don't like sandals or flip flops??? My feet are terrible as well. I have white feet with the golfers tan line at the ankle. I overlay that with another lighter tan line of where my sandals mark my feet...it is a bad look but it is mine!!

Re: White Feet?

I grew up in the sun on a ranch in the desert. I can recall people saying "you look pale and need to get our in the Sun more". I am now old and go to the Dermatologists every 6 months to have pre-cancerous spots frozen or cut off me and have had a cancerous tumor removed from my nose. I highly recommend sun block and stay as white as you can as there is a big price to be paid for tanned skin later in life.
