I love shoes, and I love a lot of the shoes in that video, but all I could see is blisters and stink. For the love of God, why were NONE of those people wearing socks? Barefoot in wingtips? Ouch, and no.
Oh my God, shoes.
Shoes without socks is an old standard that’s been around forever in certain circles - primarily old money East Coast men. If you don’t get it, you don’t get it. Your criticism of it speaks of your rank.
R4, you sound ignorant. Foot odor doesn’t care about “rank”. And anyone who throws that word around as casually as you do, lived in a dresser drawer for the first year of their lives.
Anyway, back to shoes. Lovely!
Some of the shoes are incredible. I'm more alarmed by the flood pants trend - images of Jack Soo in Thoroughly Modern Milly go through my mind.
As far as going sockless, my feet have their own temperature zone unrelated to the rest of my body. Going without socks is my idea of casual attire. Stinkfoot can happen to people who do not maintain their feet hygiene or shoe insoles. The rest of us do NOT have feet that stink.
"My feet don't stinque!"
My husband comes from European nobility. His Grandmother would have viewed a man wearing shoes without socks as the epitome of vulgarity. I have no issues with it, just saying. . .
Your husband probably has a stank sleeve, r10.
Nope. He knows of the existence of soap and water, and uses both liberally.
BTW, a lot of hipsters wear no show socks.
So a mix of classics and funky trendy.... no surprise there
Fewer socks at a time when corporate America (and Justin Trudeau) are picking up on the "fun sock" trend that swept Silicon Valley a few years back.
Since most guys can't wear highwaters or go sockless at work, I'm thinking Happy Socks is in no danger of going out of business.
No socks doesn't make much sense in winter.
Get over yourself you sockless queens who thing you are the height of fashion. It's been done many times since you were born. And trust me, one day you will look back at pick of your ridiculous self and realize it was just as stupid as bell bottom jeans were in the 70's. The young gays will be laughing at you.
As far as stink goes, no amount of washing is going to keep that shoe from going bad faster than wearing socks. That's because sock provide a WASHABLE barrier between the thousands of sweat glands on the bottom of your foot and the leather insole of the shoe. Bacteria is bacteria whether its on the bottom of your foot or the rim of a public toilet seat.
