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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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".

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.


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
