Only black socks are fashionable.  Any other color is gauche.

Denial is a subtle sign of aging subby. Grandpa still cant believe onions went out of style but it seems the younger folks will always make all kinds of ridiculous things stylish.

You're already wearing sandals, so why not complete the look?
 
2014-04-06 11:56:26 AM  
I have a question.

Why is it that when I'm looking at myself in my full length mirror wearing nothing, NOTHING, but white socks, I look okay. Seems reasonable.

However, when I do the same thing wearing nothing, NOTHING, but black socks, I look like a tramp?

Why? Am I sock racist? Because I don't think that's it.
 
2014-04-06 12:26:45 PM  
My wife would never let me out of the house looking like that.

Have you ever owned a convertible?  Especially one that doesn't have the baffles behind the rear seats?

Dunno. Check your sexual orientation and ask Fark again. I think I know the answer, nttiawwt.

Yes, a '68 Camaro. No idea about this baffles thing.

To be fair, I'd rather see someone wear a sandals/socks combo than to look down at someones bare feet and see the grossest toenails. Some people really don't give a shiat about appearances.
 
2014-04-06 01:07:16 PM  
Um, no.  The whole point of sandals is to let your feet BREATHE.
 
2014-04-06 01:08:08 PM  
I'm going to out on my flip flops and clomp around this thread really loudly, the Fark foot nazis should be here soon.
 
2014-04-06 01:11:14 PM  
There's a way to put an immediate stop to this stuff.  When you see someone wearing this crap, mock the living fark out of them.  Follow them for blocks, pointing and laughing.  Throw food at them.  When they get to their care, whiz on the door handles.  Learn their home addresses and paper their neighborhood with posters mocking them.  Mock their children.  Drive them to the very edge of misery and suicide.

That'll put a stop to it.
 
2014-04-06 01:12:04 PM  
If it's cold enough for socks then it's cold enough for shoes.
 
2014-04-06 01:12:06 PM  
Socks with sandals is about as "fashionable" as getting news from a newspaper.

Third In Line: Um, no.  The whole point of sandals is to let your feet BREATHE.


I dunno. Wearing sandals in public is gross. Just my opinion. There is so much shiat on the ground (spit, piss, shiat, trash, and anything else that is picked up and carried by the shoes of other people) that wearing them, there is almost no way those things aren't going to make contact with your feet. Just imagine: for every time you got a rock in your sandal just from walking around, there were hundreds of times little bits of excrement got under there as well and you didn't feel it.

I wonder if anyone has every done one of those petri-dish cultures from a swap of a sandal. Gross.
 
2014-04-06 01:18:41 PM  
Just don't forget the sock garters to complete the "old man" look.

As long as they cover up your mangy yellowed frito toenails I'm all for sox.

Jeebus people. If you're going to expose your feet, demonstrate some hygiene.
 
2014-04-06 01:29:01 PM  
great.  i always wore socks with sandals for comfort and convenience.  i never cared if it was gauche.  i also never wore socks with jebus-style sandals.  i only had slip-on sandals with no velcro/buckle straps.  and i cant stand sandals that go between the big toe.  but i never wore sock with sandals with shorts on.  only pants.

If this trend catches on how will we here at the Jersey shore be able to tell the bennies from the residents?  Oh wait, I know.  The guinea-tees and bling will still give them away.

Never mind

Recently, the Row designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen wore matching black and gold Birkenstock sandals with pristine white socks while walking through an airport.

Do people still pay attention to what those shaved orangutans do? They now look either insane or on drugs.

Looks like someone still thinks they are important enough to document what they are wearing.

I hear some people spout about sandals being more hygenic, but a lot of the people I see wearing them don't look very hygenic to me. My wife wore sandals at first, but my biatching put that to an end. Her nuzzling me, with those dried out "Raptor claws". Just no. Hygenic feet should mean clean enough to cover up. Yoiu don't see troops coming back from overseas wearing "combat sandals" do you?

Sandals with socks has always been fashionable here in Minnesota.

riverwalk barfly: Are you OCD?


Not in the least, thankfully, but I do take some precautions when possible (kinda like not shaking hands with someone who obviously is sick). Wearing sandals at the beach is obviously ok (slipping them on and off easily to relax on a towel or go for a swim), but that is a big difference from wearing them while walking around a city for a few hours. Unless you scrub your sandals like your feet when you take a shower, all that bacteria and whatnot is going to go right back on your feet when you put them on again.
 
2014-04-06 01:35:10 PM  
I like it.   I'm all about comfort but i don't want to be so unfasionable that i draw attention to myself.   If you wear sandles without socks for too long,  then everytime your feet sweat or become dirty it digs into the sandle.   The next time you wear them,  your basically putting on dirty socks.   For this reason,  i always wear socks with my slippers too.   I just like that clean feeling, and I like my feet to be one the toasty side.

I am waiting for pantaloons to come into style.  Might rock some white ones with black socks. . .just to me the trend setter

2014-04-06 01:38:41 PM  
Who gives a flying fark.  I wear socks with sandals to keep my toes warm.  The sandals allow the socks to air out and keep the feet dry.  Haven't had a case of athlete's foot since I started wearing sandals and socks in cooler weather.

Hate all you want.  There's no better way to show off colourful, cozy handknit wool socks.

If true - this would make life easy for me.  Although, I have never been fashionable so I am not sure I could handle the pressure.

skinink: To be fair, I'd rather see someone wear a sandals/socks combo than to look down at someones bare feet and see the grossest toenails. Some people really don't give a shiat about appearances.


This.

fark "style" when it's gone that far. Short socks would be ok with sandals, well, the strap over kind, not the between the toes flip flop kind.(unless you've got on short socks with individual toes).  Tube socks to the knee, no, you look retarded, those look retarded on anyone.  They're only meant for boots, which, if you're wearing boots, the rest of the sock should almost never be visible.

Feet are one of those things that unless you have a thing for them, are neutral at best(they never look "good"), and often just ugly bony sinewy things that really just shouldn't be in sight any more than a person's pubes that poke out or so stiff they poke through the clothes, nose hairs so long they're sun bleached at the tips, etc.

Sure, at the beach, lazing around the house, whatever, do it buck naked for all I care.  Sit naked and watch tv with your legs behind your ears and your anus exposed to the breeze from the fan.  No one cares.

You step out in public looking unshowered, off the scale of wierd/hipster, warts and all, and you're going to get looked at funny.  Ugly, fat cleavage on your hips, whatever the case.

People should be a bit considerate of others.  As long as you go far enough to try and be considerate, that's all that's really necessary.  Wear your socks, but don't wear them half up to your knee with the blue and yellow bands at the top.  It's as bad as wearing clown shoes or Napoleon Dynamite's snowboots with a tux or swimwear.  It's not offensive in and of itself, but it's a sure sign that you're mentally imbalanced and sets people on edge.

While normally I'm a fan of people outing themselves as retarded or creepy as a warning, I'm also a fan of my fantasy that humans are generally, more or less, capable and decent.

There are enough farked up individuals to judge by their actions, ie how the treat people, and how kind(or not) they are, that sort of thing.  No need for you to passively advertise how much of a socially detached nimrod you are, you do that you're not only making yourself look bad, you're making everyone around you look bad.

At least if someone's a jerk in public, his friends can actively try to moderate him, calm him down, let him know that's over the line.  If you're a terrible dresser, unless people meet you at your house(and tell you to go change), they can do nothing.  There's no defense against hanging out with someone with socks covering his calf's but to just hang your head in shame at even being associated with him.

You don't even have to be a good dresser, just don't cross the line into "bad".
