Also to know is, are fencing shoes worth it?
No, fencing shoes do not "make the difference". Yes, they are "worth the investment". But there are acceptable alternatives, as people have pointed out already. ( I used racquetball shoes for years myself. )
Why do fencers wear white?
Fencers wear white uniforms because early on, before electronic scoring, white was easiest to see marks from their opponent's weapon. This helped in scoring as fencers score when they make contact with their opponent. Before washing machines and stain treatments, white was also the easiest color to wash.
