John Buck 41: I guess if looking stupid is fashionable then yeah. I equate this to driving a convertible with the top down and the windows up. STUPIDSTUPIDSTUPID


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.

I got these clogs a couple years ago for Christmas. My mother-in-law made me a pair of socks (not in photo) because I don't want to wear sweaty feet on the wood soles. Yes, living in Germany has influenced my shoe choices and I would never have been caught alive wearing socks with clogs, sandals, or slippers. I did go shopping yesterday in jogging pants, B-stocks, and WHITE socks.
I am eccentric, sarcastic, and don't really give a shiat what people think of my dress choice.

InsaneJelloTroll: Sandals with socks has always been fashionable here in Minnesota.


It's Minnesota. "Fashion" does not enter into it.

HairBolus: 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.

[img2.timeinc.net image 600x450]

Looks like someone still thinks they are important enough to document what they are wearing.
[img2.timeinc.net image 300x400]

Everybody must now dress like the Olsen twins.


This.  They point to the Olsen twins, unnamed fashion editors of unnamed magazines/blogs, and 'street style stars'.

If I took my fashion cues from anywhere but what's comfortable, it would not be any of those three.

Jesus H. Christ, who farking cares about shiat like this?

People who spend time ranting about others' footwear decisions really need to re-evaluate their lifestyle choices.

Answer two questions: 1) Is it comfortable? 2) Is it practical? If yes to either/both, SHUT THE HELL UP.

Live up here in the wet side of Washington and socks with sandals are a comfort thing. I really don't give a rip what you think about it...I hate the feel of wet leather on my bare feet.

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


You're so Minnesota.  Only argyle socks with individual toes are acceptable. Also, the sandals have to match your park ranger hat.

RoxtarRyan: 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.


You're in the wrong part of the country, then. Come on out to the West Coast, or at least a non-beach area (I cannot speak for what tourists do). Out here in the desert, the dirt's clean enough so you can practically eat off it.

/Seriously, it's baked in the sun and has nothing but mashed-up pebbles. Nothing lives in this dirt.
//Which can be problematic if you're gardening, but it's always nice to know that if you get dirty you're not germy, just dusty.
 
2014-04-06 02:37:29 PM  

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.


Ya beat me to it.  Some people have really nasty feet.  Same goes for women wearing a bikini when they have fat rolls.
 
2014-04-06 02:47:35 PM  
As someone noted in the comments, cholos have been wearing socks with sandals for years (I recall seeing this fashion trend back in the 1970s).

Gong beyond socks with sandals, when it came time for graduation from Boot Camp, we got our first look at a large bunch of civilians in 8 weeks.

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!

There may be something to how our grandparents dressed up whenever going out.  Even pix during the Great Depression showed bums in suit coats and hats.
 
2014-04-06 02:48:38 PM  

TheTurtle: 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.


I heart you.

Anyone growing up in the 80's has no business talking shiat about this.
 
2014-04-06 03:00:06 PM  
I wear white quarter socks with sandals when I feel like it. I don't give a fark. Nobody ever called me on it either. I used to get called out for wearing white quarter socks in the 80s, but it looks I won that one.

There's nothing so liberating as not giving a shiat about what's "fashionable".
 
2014-04-06 03:10:44 PM  
Yeah, another city guy here. Since I was a kid, the only place you wore sandals or flip flops was if you were at the beach. Well, Girls wear them anywhere but they're Girls. I'm not even going to go into the thing about all the crap on public streets. You have to be able to Move if something happens. Suppose a car jumps a curb and comes up on the sidewalk or whatever. Maybe some idiot on a bike is going to run you down. I'm gonna be outa there while you're tripping over your own two feet. If you're gonna walk around in your own little self important, I want to be comfortable to hell with everyone else world, my size 11 Wolverines are gonna leave tracks on your back if something happens when you just have to "Get outta the Way!!!" right now.

Those look like they're made out of cow nut-sacks.

Yeah, when I was about 5 and we lived in El Paso, every kid had a pair of those Mexican tire-tread sandals from Juarez. And it used to embarrass the hell out of me that my Mom made me wear socks with them. I finally just started wearing my tennis shoes full time.

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.
 
2014-04-06 03:26:05 PM  
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.

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

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...

CruJones: I'm going to out on my flip flops and clomp around this thread really loudly, the Fark foot nazis should be here soon.


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.
