Maybe in the UK.  I mean they were black socks with shorts and sneakers so what else could they do wrong?

Nope.

And this lousy trend continues to infest the Seattle area, and I refuse to be a part of it.

No.

Crocs with socks to me indicate a willingness to take part in the Soylent Green Pension Scheme.

Crocs with socks usually means you work in healthcare

Screw you guys. Socks with sandals is farking comfortable.

Suck it.

Settle down, children. The headline says "fashionable", not required, or that it looks good.

How did the ultimate men's fashion faux pas, the socks and sandals combination, become hip?

Even fashion trolls eventually run out of creative ideas.

Stop trying to make fetch happen.

Once again, I am such a trendsetter.

I wore socks with my Berkiess because otherwise the straps dig into my feets.

How long until the hole in the sock with the big toe sticking out becomes fashionable?

This seems to be the style in central KS, as well.  I want to yell out the window when I see these college kids: "what the hell is wrong with you, it's hot out!"
 
2014-05-11 12:12:26 PM  
Is the great non-ironic majority majority taking fashion tips from ironic hipsters?

At first I was scared about this.   Then it hit me.  The  ironic hipster being scared of doing anything done before being chased by the great zombie horde of fashion wannabe's buying clothes out of wal-mart sounds quite enjoyable.

This same crap was making the rounds at the end of fall/winter and being laughed at on social media.

I wear fitted socks - the ones with the space for each individual toe, with my Birkenstocks.

Finally had a nice day out. Saw this kid wearing this knit cap out walking around for fashion's sake. Being Ironic should not mean mentally challenged.

I always have trouble getting the socks on over the sandals.....

this should have been entirely preictable

Socks are a necessity.
Underwear, not so much.

Be on chemotherapy and you will appreciate socks. At all times.

Wool socks with Teva sandals is the way to canoe in the spring. Your feet will get wet as hell but they won't be cold.

It's what Jesus would wear.

Or a Lycra wearing super heroine with a thong ontoppa.

Whatever. I remember when walking around with your shirt untucked meant you were a slob, or trying to hide how huge your beer gut was. Now I'm the square old man for tucking my shirt in like an adult.

Seriously, you look like a five-year-old who dressed himself for the first time

Dr. Helen Harris,

What if you are wearing black shoes with your shorts? White socks just look out of place. I haven't worn white socks in at least 12 years. Pure white socks are for 12 year olds.

When that happens I plan to act the same way people did when ripped jeans became popular.

Well your namesake comes from a movie. In the same interaction where the character stated his name was Enemabag Jones also stated his name was Harris, Dr Helen Harris.

i always thought socks with sandals was kind of weird...but then i was stationed 4 1/2 years in germany. birkenstocks with socks was a common site. and on the not-so-cold fall/winter days, thick wool socks with birkenstocks was a common site.

/wife still makes fun of me when i try to wear socks with my birkenstocks

Whoohooo  I am hip now!  Socks with sandals is great in a cool dry climate like Denver, but now that I am in Seattle...  nope, just to wet usually.
