Is it ever OK to wear socks with sandals?
Like giant spiders entering the UK via supermarket bananas, the hot weather has triggered the annual scare story about the return of socks and sandals. Indeed, if many of the S/S17 menswear shows are to be believed, this perfect storm of questionable footwear is actually set to make a comeback. We say: take a step back.
In the context of a fashion show, where boundaries are pushed, socks and sandals might make sense (Prada’s showwas a psytrance-cum-gap-year-backpacker extravaganza). Away from the catwalk it’s an entirely different matter. The benefits, such as they are — cooler feet, less chance of blisters and not having your toes on display— don’t outweigh the drawbacks: looking like a rambler, an embarrassing dad or a person unfamiliar with the basic principle of sandals. As an alternative, we’d suggest the following:
Toe the line
Remove your socks and go toes out, but get a pedicure. Inflicting your Bilbo Baggins creepers on the general public isn’t cool. Plus, removal of dead skin, callouses and an assessment of your feet is [probably] long overdue.
Spend as much as you can on as simple a pair of sandals as you can find. We’d suggest single strap, leatherBirkenstocksfor beginners - rugged enough not to look like flip flops, smart enough not to look like the technical hiking sandals worn by your vicar.
Without the break of a sock or shoe, your legs will look longer than usual. Temper the flesh on show with a pair of tailored shorts that finish above the knee but not further than six inches up your thigh.
