Why is it such a faux pas to wear socks under sandals? I simply don't see anything wrong with them.
It means you can use them for far longer in the year.
Last year I set out on a 100 miler with the temperature at -2. I had sandals, socks and overshoes. By lunch time it was sandals only.
Don't ask me, I have no taste or style
But I agree with you, with one proviso - not white socks. Ever. Usually
My fleece socks are excellent with sandals.
Hoover Flee, tell me you did not go out in France wearing socks and sandals. Please, please, please.
You could not have been more English if you had a bulldog tattoo and wore a football shirt...
Sandals and shorts then I don't use socks, sandals and long trousers I wear socks. Don't really know why but that's what happens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh no, socks an sandals.........no way..even when your foot is about to fall off with chaffing (all right a little hole in my skin) - then go to smelly trainers..........
some people can carry it off but they usually have beards. I'd look a right nob in sandals and socks, but then again .........
Sandals, yes. Socks, yes. Socks and sandals ... er, no.
It's just wrong. Morally and sartorially. Socks and sandals together are still very popular in Germany for some reason. You wouldn't get away with it in Italy mind.
Black socks and black sandals.
No one notices! Honest!
I have to go round groups of people shouting "Look at my socks and sandals" before they notice...
sandals and socks: wrong!
sandals and no socks: wrong!
so just dont wear them.......................................
Have to agree with Dan on this one!
Socks combined with sandals will be the next big thing in Paris and Milan. I predict.
Get out, the lot of you, who would even contemplate socks and sandals, if your gunna wear socks wear trainers, you may think no ones noticed your black socks with black sandals, oh but they have, and when you aren't looking they are pointing and laughing.
and the inbreds that wear flip flops and socks, you should be shot, or at the very least castrated.
Do none of you watch gok wan?
No socks please, we're British.
