For me, I think only sandals+shorts works.
Sandals + suit? @.@

the fesux pas is the sandal sock combo, but personally i have no problem with men and sandals in summer ( as long as the feet are in good condition!)
Men in flip-flops away from any source of water is a total no-no though...

^Hmm I have to disagree on that last one :p
Thusfar the ones at D&G look best to me...the ones with the crossover straps actually look like they might be cool.

Sandals always come out in the summer, that doesnt mean you have to wear them.

^ yeah!



maybe my hatred of mens sandals stems from the fact that 90% of the men I see walking around have horrible feet!

its disgusting when someone's wearing sandals and his feet look horrible.

I am sorta obsessing over the burberry ones, probably because the guys feet are PERFECT.

I have nothing against the concept of sandals, but these are some ugly sandals even without the socks. They look like Beautifeel for men.

You are correct...

Of the ones posted, the only ones that pique my interst are the Jil Sander & Burberry ones...Clean, sleek, simple, w/ no fussy detailing (like DG)...

But w/ socks and/or suits: that's just plain crazy-talk if you ask me..

I once painted my boyfriend's toenails pink so I could keep sandals off of his feet.

^ lol, doesn't he have a polish remover?
what sandals attract me is that they're the ultimate fashion faux pas!

Almost everyone agrees - take proper care of feet or don't wear sandals without socks. And I think sandals with socks can only be successful if the socks are really crazy and a bit shocking. I mean, the eye cannot help but see the socks immediately, so they'd better be good!

Also, I prefer a more subdued sandal on men (and women, for that matter) unless the person's feet are really beautiful.

I am relieved that none of this year's sandals for men are chunky or rubbery.

That's what they said in the latest edition of Vogue Hommes and I agree!

I've been experimenting with colorful printed socks with closed toe shoes and shorts lately, to break them into socks and sandals.

still, hard for me to think its a trend cause its so engraved in me that this look is such a faux pas

but for some reason I see it so aestethically pleasant on the pics

Bringing this back up, but what do you guys think of those gladiator-type sandals? I think they're kind of cool (I saw the D&G ones at a sample sale, they looked good.)

I hate the Prada sandal + sock comb, but I actually really like those socks. I want to get a pair, but haven't been able to find them online anywhere.
