    How many of you still wear socks with sandals even though the "fashion police" are against it?

    Since my job occassionally forces me to wear open toe high heel shoes even in the wintertime (I'm a stage performer, and it's not always warm on stage), I'll sometimes wear thick knee highs with them to stay warm.

    Never have, never will. I wear flip flops during the summer and slippers during the winter.

    Nope. I can't say that I have ever done that or ever cared too.

    It's a sort of "trend" here for teenage boys to wear sandals and socks, and it looks horrible. I don't even know how one would be able to walk properly all day with socks and flip flops, but socks and sandals just looks terrible. I can understand if one does it at home or because of necessity for work, but wearing it to make a "fashion statement" is ridiculous.

    I go around with bare legs all the time, so no, I don't wear socks with sandals. It has to be very cold for me to wear anything at all on my feet, and then it's sheer knee highs if I'm dressed up, or socks if I'm casual. If it's that cold, though, I'm not likely to be wearing sandals anyway.

    Here in Spain, a lot of men - my husband included - often wear socks with sandals in the winter. Nobody seems to bother about it here.

    Absolutely not, and it should be against the law to do so! :mad:

    I have never been to Spain but here in nyc people seem to care so much about fashion that remarks about such little things are made. I personally say to wear what makes you comfortable but the surrounding never agrees!

    Well, i do it all the time, don't care what someone thinks or feels. Every has their own way of doing things. Just this morning i went to school with flip flops and socks because i didn't want to put on shoes. It really not big deal where i stay because many people do it especially college kids.

    I do when I travel on long car trips or airplanes. I wear socks that match the color of my sandals (black with black) and long sweat/yoga pants to cover them up so I don't freak people out too much. LoL It's more for comfort than anything, and it makes it easier for me to get through the security line at the airport especially if my sandals are secured with Velcro straps then I don't have to fumble with shoelaces. Also, wearing socks prevents my bare feet from touching the cold, dirty floor. And if my feet feel warm, I just pull the socks off and air my toes out in the sandals.

    The thing is, it doesn't really make any sense. If it's cold enough to wear socks, then it's cold enough to wear sensible shoes. If I could wear my fuzzy boots on stage, I totally would, haha!

    Nope, I don't. Not because it's out of style, but just because i don't like it.

    I don't wear socks with sandals, but I do wear socks during the winter months with my bedroom slippers. It helps to keep my feet extra warm.

    No, never, I just don't like the look of it. I wear shoes or sandals.. never socks and sandals.. I personally love to show off my neatly painted toe nails.. I keep painting my nails so often and love to wear sandals that shows them off.

    I have never worn that kind of getup and I never will, it looks so horrendous! :eek: But back in the late 90's if I'm not mistaken, it was quite fashionable to wear sandals with socks even if it doesn't look very nice. :confused:

    I never wear socks with scandals. It looks horrible. I have seen many guys wearing socks with sandals. It really seems to be a guy fashion statement. I really don't like.

    Not my thing but to each their own. I think it looks silly, especially on me! I can understand that some folks like the comfort factor and are not too concerned about what I, or anyone else thinks about what they wear. I actually give them kudos for having that attitude.

    This thread made me laugh, I remember when I was little, back in Portugal, people laughing at the European tourists exactly for wearing sandals with socks! I don't wear it, not because the ''fashion police'' says no ( I am sure I do a lot of other things banned by the fashion police eheheheh) but because:
    a) I personally don't like it, though I couldn't care less if someone else wears it.
    b) For me it either is warm enough for sandals or cold enough for socks. If it's cold enough for socks, than for me it's too cold for sandals ahahaha

    If I did I'd probably make it a fashion statement and wear it in my very own boho style:)

    I have never wore socks with sandals, as it's not comfortable, especially in hot summer.
