Sockless Fashion Nazis

Recommended Posts

F**k to that, I wear rolled downed socks. OK rolled up socks do look geriatric.

Why? because I walk sixty miles a week, and don't want rubbed ankles. Do you see Murray wearing no socks for a three hour stint or anybody that is actually doing sustained physical activity.

So where do you stand...socks, no socks, or trainer socks?

I wear rolled down socks for reasons of comfort/sweat/etc but no socks with flip flops.

I think the colour of the socks is important.

Tend to wear black socks in the belief (maybe misguided) that they camouflage the fact that I am wearing them with dark trainers etc.

Only wear trainers or flip flops with shorts.

Trainers = rolled down white socks

Flip flops / sandals = no socks

Long trousers = doesn't matter

Socks serve a purpose. Shoes and sandals do too. Combined when walking makes total sense. I hate fashion Nazis so winding them up is good fun!

Been in the states and they love wearing flip flops with socks fully pulled up half way up the leg with temps in the 90s.

Never understood why you'd want to wear socks with sandals if its hot enough for sandals you dont need socks.

It is our national duty to wear short dark socks with everything (sandals, plimsoles).

This man has got it completely wrong. Clearly a foreigner:

Please, no more selfies

On another note, how can you wear flip flops (thongs) with socks? Do you wear socks with individual toes?

Sorry.

Funnily I did come across this particular problem in my scanning for those pics....

...it was too redolent of Camel toes for my liking.

Not sure how to post a picture, but one thing the Romans did for us was Oxyrhynchian Romano-Egyptian socks, with divided toes, for use with sandals.

wearing shorts one afternoon this week, it was time to slip up to the post box...I slipped on my black town shoes parked near the door.

"You cant go out like that" came the stern voice if my Entertainments and fashion manager Mrs Loo.

Ignoring her, I made the 200 yard walk to the post box and back without personal incident, but 3 fashion police cars managed to mount kerbs and cause mayhem.

I am awaiting a visit from the Council any time.
