I think of sock with sandals as being something that only middle-aged or older Asian men wear. At least around here, anyway.

It was always cool, you just didn't understand.

It's always been in fashion among the Germans.

Also OK if you're a Roman soldier. Those guys had to stand around in Britannia and Germania with nothing on their feet but thin sandels, socks and maybe a lot of cloth foot wrappers in lieu of Russian felt boots.

I have boots rated down to -65 degrees (from a maximum of about 10) but I haven't had to wear them for years thanks to global warming hoaxes keeping my toesies warm in dress shoes and sneakers.

Socks and flip flops are Texas winter footwear.

But I only wear them at home.

Socks with sandals didn't suddenly become cool. The phenomenon they're looking for is, rich and attractive people get to do whatever they want and normies will find an excuse to fawn over it.

Crocs are safe 99% of the time. The other 1% of the time, you break your fricking neck.

The Men's room at the Mall was flooded by one of the urinals yesterday. It had reached the handicapped booth by the time I left, clutching the stalls like I do the seats on a bus when I have to walk while the bus is moving.

Get you some japanese toe socks, you can thank me later!

PS:  they also make a surf/rocky shoreline pair out of scuba diving material for fisherman and metal detecting!

Nobody laughed at the Roman armies when they wore socks with sandels, and even today, made men can make the Look work because they are heavily armed or even lightly armed, with enormous guns.

I wear socks with my flip flops on occasion - when I do, my vietnamese sister in law starts chanting "one of us! one of us!"

Of course I wear socks with sandals. Do you really want to see my toenail fungus, bunions, and hammer toe?

I've been wearing socks under my Tevas for goin' on 30 years.

Feet that don't stink are cool.

You can take your fashion opinions and use 'em to hold up your pants.

I am a sandal person, and you'd have to claw my sandals off my cold dead feet. Hence, during winter, I just put on socks with my sandals. Fight me.

Some old guy told me that the socks were better for the feet.  It took me years to try it.  He was right.  My feet would get really dried out, leathery, and then the callouses.  I wore flip flops about nine months out of the year before that.  What do I know?  I still think that women wearing cowboy boots and dresses at a formal affair is just creepy.

I'm not against others wearing them but I do have an affinity for keeping my socks dry from puddles.

Socks with sandals have always been cool
Dress socks have never been cool with any style of Footwear
it's just that with sandals you can see the idiots wearing dress socks

I live in Oregon, and tons of people around here shamelessly wear socks with sandals. I'll do it occasionally if I'm running to the mailbox and I'm too lazy to put on real shoes or take off my socks, but I always feel bad about myself when I do. I remember looking at a line of people about a month ago and probably a third of them were wearing socks with sandals.

It's so wet here that it doesn't make much practical sense IMO. Maybe it's just part of the overall culture of dressing very casually.

2020-09-27 2:33:24 PM  
provided the socks aren't black dress socks and the sandal has no big toe separator (or any toe separation), it has never been uncool. not exactly cool by any reasonable measure, but not uncool.

These are the right socks for sandals:

backcountry.comView Full Size


- Polypropylene to wick away sweat and keep feet dry
- Dark neutral color to hide dirt (ymmv)
- Light toe contrast to make big feet look less goofy (yfmv)
- Low rise to maximize nudity

If you wear white cotton athletic socks under your sandals, then you deserve mockery and it's not because fashion.

Say what you want but sandals in bare feet after a few days get disgusting. Easiest way to prevent it is wear ankle socks. They keep my feet clean and prevent them fromn drying out. Stinky feet are never in fashion no matter what else is. My ski boots on the other hand get bad socks or not. Athletes foot spray powder and a boot dryer help but never quite eliminate the issue...

Sometimes Oregon is so wet, it seeps into your actual shoes.  Nothing like wet socks chafing your feet inside a pair of shoes/boots.

I couldn't care less if someone wear socks and sandals.  Don't even give it a second thought.   Plus, the socks don't get so stinky in sandals, like in those wet boots I was talking about...but, no, my husband's feet smell of roses at all times, no matter what...at least that's what I tell him as I'm pulling those socks off his feet.   And yeah, he wears socks with his sandals, the gore-tex high techie ones he wears.

It's funny because, while I am a swimmer and did swim team in high school and middle school, I didn't start wearing the Adidas sandals until college. I wore Birkenstocks in high school -- which often led to that "swampy" wet leather action. *vomit*

black socks like that are painfully hipsteresque, and that's a poor excuse for fashion. technically correct that it's *a* fashion. it's just a silly one.

neutral otoh, definitely a good choice. that's a justifiable look.

and leave white cotton socks alone or i'll have you arrested for being an affront to wholesomeness :(

Do you people just walk around your homes barefoot, or do you actually stop to take your socks off before slipping some sandals on and stepping outside?

My favorite polypro socks are neon lime green with an old school peace symbol on the ankles.

You could use them to signal rescue aircraft.

I wouldn't recommend them to anyone else.  But I love 'em.

Bow-ties are cool.
 
2020-09-27 2:53:53 PM  
Meh.

I wear super low cut running socks with my crocs when I take my dog for her daily walks.  It looks fine and the wife hasn't divorced me yet so all is good.

Wearing knee high socks with actual sandals?  I'll pass on that but you do you.
 
2020-09-27 3:06:55 PM  
So like, it is okay for people with circulation problems to do what they've gotta. They just aren't going to be picking up any hot tail when they walk their dog past the community college. No biggie!
