Socks with sandals? Yes or no?

    I was in the "nay" camp for years -- I thought, and think, that it looks ridiculous -- but lately, my heels have started to petrify if I don't wear them.

    What is the consensus here?

      Socks and sandals!? I think I saw that somewhere in the communist manifesto.

      The prerequisites of wearing socks with sandals are that you must be either English or American, and over 65.

      Its only acceptable in 1 case.  If you are already wearing socks because its cold in the house, and you have to run to the car for something.  Just stick your feet in your flip flops and go get what you need.  LOL

      Otherwise...ewwww

        I have a pair of flip-flops that I wear around the house when I get home from work -- I kick off my shoes and slip into the flip-flops. Most of the time, yeah, I leave my socks on cuz I'm simply too lazy to take them off. I wouldn't go out in public rockin' that combination though. It makes me think of when my Dad used to wear his black dress socks & shoes with shorts in the summer time. Yikes!!

      It just depends on the individual.  I honestly wouldn't wear socks with sandals.  I think it looks ridiculous!  But that's my opinion.

      I wonder what the point of wearing sandals is if a person is just going to wear socks. They might as well just wear regular shoes. Plus, it really does look rather silly.

      I never wear socks with sandals. However, many kids in my school (specifically boys) sport Adidas with socks, because there doesn't seem to be another way to wear Adidases.

      Based on personal experience, with high heels, no socks, especially smooth silky ones, but with flat ones, what's the difference between yes and no. Just feel on your own.big_smile

    Absolutely not. Socks and sandals is akin to blue eyeliner.

    That's so disgusting, I won't even discuss it.

    OKOK, just read your reason for asking, Now I feel like the petrifying heel. If need be, wear very low ankle socks.

    Doesn't wearing socks defeat the purpose of wearing sandals?

      Yes, it does. I think people get lazy or simply don't understand that socks defeat the purpose of wearing sandals.

    Socks w/ sandals is a term known as Shoebie or shoebee's. At the famed Jersey shore, one could spot Canadian tourists by the large "fish pocketbooks" and dark socks with sandals. From what I know, it is not a positive remark.

    Ewwwwwwwww!  Absolutely not!  Ewwwwwwwwww!  Wearing socks with sandals is the same thing as rolling up your jeans above your ankles because you were too cheap to get them hemmed or didn't know what you were buying in the first place!  Ewwwwwwww!  Yeah, lots of Einsteins out there wearing socks with sandals.

    Also, I should suggest for you to try and match the color of your ankle socks with the color of your sandals. Don't pick sandals that have the thong that would tuck the socks between your toes(kinky) and make them fairly thin socks.

    Maybe off-white or a cream color sock, or perhaps black, maybe tan, or a nice military olive drab(OD)green. Try not to make a statement by choosing bright colors. Polka-dots, tiger stripes and any such garish patterns are out of the question, unless you wish to partake in certain circles.

      I would if a foot problem made it mandatory, which happens to be the purpose of this forum.

      Socks without sandals might be, when out

    No way, it's literally a walking contradiction. If they want to be covered, wear shoes that fully cover. If they want sandals they should wear them without socks. There are plenty of comfortable shoes and sandals if one cares to look.

    Maybe because I hang around tourists and so many other people wear socks with sandals... I don't see what the big deal is... It also keeps your feet from turning black from the dust on the ground (little known fact of LA life: not enough rain to wash anything)

    The very fact that you asked the question leads me to believe you already know it's wrong.

    with children yes.. I don't wear those combination. It looks sexy for men to wear those.

    My thoughts on socks with sandals.
    When I had an ingrown toenail surgery done, my doctor told me absolutely no shoe that would cover my toe, but that I needed to make sure and wear socks.
    I said "So, doc, are you saying socks with sandals?"
    He replied "precisely" 
    I shuddered, telling him that I did not want to be seen out like that, because people would make fun of me. He told me that he did not want to see me in the ER for an infection.
    I wore socks with sandals for the few weeks that it took my two toes to heal. Then I discovered something. I did not care what people I did not know thought of how it looked. Socks with sandals was far more comfortable than shoes and socks in the summer, and more comfortable than sandals alone. Additionally, my feet stay cleaner, my sandals stay cleaner, and I don't have horribly dry heels the way I used to.
    If YOU prefer the comfort of your feet not splitting open, then wear your sandals as you find most comfortable. None of us on here are cat walk fashion models, anyway, so you might as well have comfort. As for those who would snicker, laugh, call names, or in other ways be rude, ignore them. When I was recovering from my surgery, people would nudge each other and try to discreetly point at my sandal/sock combination. I would walk right up to them and explain I was recovering from surgery, but to be honest, after a few days, I no longer cared of the opinions of strangers because I was comfortable.

    I never tried it. I see people wearing it as a protection to their feet and not due to sense of fashion.

    Disturbiaposted 5 years ago

    Who cares? If wearing socks makes your feet feel more comfortable, go for it.  Besides, there are some pretty ugly feet out there, nasty toe nails, cracked and dry heels, callouses... yuk... sometimes it's best to keep em covered.
