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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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".

Hmmm, I occasionally rent a convertible when on vacation and will sometimes drive with the windows up and the air conditioning on. Ha ha ha!

Even the glasses, hat, scarf, hair clips, bands, duct tape, and other schemes may not always keep my hair from whipping into my eyes or turning into a cross between "Bride of Frankenstein," dreads, and "combed backwards with a pine tree."

You are, of course, welcome to provide free cooling and hair styling support on my next convertible vacation to prevent the heinous act of driving a convertible with the top down and the windows up.

After 2 months of making sure EVERYTHING about your uniform was spotless, in line, polished, etc., it was quite a shock to see just how badly some people dressed. I'm talking "People of Walmart" bad!

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


That's fine and well in places that aren't 98F and 50% humidity.

Some times I wear black ankle socks with my closed toe sandals if I'm wearing them with pants. You can't even tell they are their and I don't end up with swamp foot.

alright peoples:
if your over 25 male or female please don't wear sandals unless you are on the boardwalk, beach, or by the pool.
/your feet, female or male (like mine) no one wants to see them, I don't care how great it is for you feet to be able to "breath" I do not want to see them, or your arm pits, not my bag baby.
//funny thing, we have a work code at my office where men can wear sneakers as long they look like shoes (you know the black restaurant kind) but the women can wear sandals (open toe shoes) men have to wear button down shirts (no tie unless "company is coming"). but women can wear sleeveless blouses.
now, I suppose if I worked at the playboy mansion I wouldn't have a problem with this. but I work with a murder of old War Pigs.
///you look like a Eastern European, or an Italian that just "got off the boat" when you wear socks with sandals.
////they sell really nice running/walking shoes that are mesh on the top. do this.

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

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


Baffled by baffles?

I own a Jeep and I don't feel stupid when I don't want to fark around with the roof but still want to drive home from the beach after dark when the temperature dropped 20 degrees. Windows up just makes my nipples less hard.

Baffling, I know.

RoxtarRyan: 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.


And how many of them wear those same excrement-covered sandals or shoes throughout their homes instead of taking them off as soon as they get into the door?

I've worked at a few places like that.  The messed up part is that the men, fully attired in long-sleeved dress shirts and suit jackets would be sweltering in the summer and turn down the A/C to 65°F so they could be comfortable, leaving us women shivering (even those of us smart enough to keep wool cardigans at our desks).

There's nothing like having to use a space heater in your cubicle in the middle of July...

I love it when the women in the office wear flip flops to work during summer and smack-slap their way back and forth down the hall past my cube all day. SMACK SLAP SMACK SLAP  SMACK SLAP  SMACK SLAP  SMACK SLAP  SMACK SLAP  SMACK SLAP. Really helps me concentrate on software troubleshooting. And by "love" I mean "do not love".

I only wear sandals around the house & when I step out onto the deck, no way would I walk in my "yard" with them (cactus, rocks, various stinging & biting critters). Since I also have a tendency to run my toes into things my usual foot wear is boots, hiking or cowboy.

Someone please inform me what is the point of wearing sandals if wearing socks?  I thought sandals were to maximize skin exposure on the feet  to air and light while protecting the soles of the feet.

C'mon guys. Is this another what was in in the 90s/past is in again? If you are going to do that, at leasr bring back the cooler stuff like hypercolor shirts, not birkenstock shiat!

I haven't read this thread, just came here to say this:

Socks with sandals are the most farking stupid, ugly-ass thing on the planet. ON THE PLANET.

But I'm not the type to criticize and not offer a solution, so here is what I propose.

Once a week, clean your toenails out with hydrogen peroxide. I use a (I don't know what it's called, "toenail pick?" Anyways, you can get it from Walmart. Squirt those suckers with hydrogen peroxide once a week and use the file to remove dead whatnot. Not just under the nail, along the the nailbeds too. Next, buy a good "sandal refresher" spray and clean your barefoot footwear at least once a month.

offmymeds: HawgWild: 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.

Have you tried rainbow socks?

In Europe, wearing socks and sandals points you out as an American tourist almost, but not quite, as fast as asking if you get fries with that crepe. Do what you want, accept the consequences.

If they have closed toes, they aren't sandals. I'm guessing you mean "shoes with a closed toe but no back"; those are called mules. And socks with those are fine, *because* they have closed toes.

What really needs to die, in footwear land, are high-heel sneakers and boots-with-open-toes. There is no reasonable scenario where you would ever need to wear either of those. Also, the word "shooties". "Booties" is terrible already. Those are ankle boots, dammit, "booties" are what infants wear, stop infantalizing stuff for adult women.

But yes, men, if you're going to wear sandals, get a pedicure at the beginning of sandal season - nail polish not required. If that's unacceptably metrosexual for you, at least cut/file your damn nails, and if your toenails are yellow, treat your foot fungus. That's not fashion, it's basic freaking hygiene. I mean, seriously, would you allow someone to bring something jagged and disease-ridden into YOUR bed?

I second that about Minnesota. I didn't know it was wrong for a long time until an out of state friend decided to educate me. Socks with sandals just seemed to perfect mix of breathe ability and comfort.
