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
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!!
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.
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)
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.
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.
