Here’s something shocking I rarely admit to.
I sometimes wear socks with sandals to stop my feat getting sunburned.
Please don’t judge me for it.☹️

I used to be a sock wearer 100% of the daytime, but the past few summers in the lower Rockies have gotten so hot that even thin nylons are too hot for my feet.

This leaves me in a dilemma, because I hate going sockless. I worry that my sweaty feet will make my shoes - whether suede loafers, or sneakers, or ballet flats - unbearably stinky. But in a previous discussion about socks some of you recommended doing without on my ballet flats, so I tried it. After a while I got used to it, and a little baby powder helped reduce both the smell and the sticky feeling.

But now I have another problem: Even with the help of powder to reduce friction, the insoles have been sticking to my feet so firmly that they have pulled away from the interior of the shoe. They get all wrinkled up between my toes and come out with my foot when I take the shoes off.

I guess I'll have to go back to "no-show" socks, but those are difficult to find in a size that fits (men's US shoe size 10).

In the mid-ninteenth Century an English explorer returned from a period spent in southern Africa. He announced to a gathering at the Royal Grographical Society that he had discovered there a species of bison that had no noses.

Gracious me, said one learned listener, who asked: However did they smell?

'Terrible', our adventurer stated.

So there's the answer to stinky feet....Get rid of your sense of smell!

Looking at the outfit in total, the socks and shoes would indicated a Thom Brown outfit.

I think the look is ok - but in my opinion I reckon his feet (as in hist socks and shoes) are too bulky and the black is too solid a colour - if you can call it a colour - vs the grey and white suited outfit - it is too foot heavy a look.

I hear others views and style is a personal thing -but I reckon he should be in a grey pump - that would be tone on tone and would look balanced. There's a ton of choices in pumps - theres a style to suit how confident or bold or capable you are.

given its a formal occasion I would have paired up a patent grey dressier pump eg.

Maybe pumps aren't his thing. If I were wearing an outfit like that I'd go for loafers instead.

I've posted about the show in this forum here - looking forward to the season finale now, I was worried they'd put him up in a full bridal outfit. We've been watching it as a family, and it pains me a bit as his character is stereotypically gay (or bi as the show indicates), he wears a skirt-like outfit frequently, as if the two go hand in hand.

Don't know about you, but my feet don't come to a point! they look a) agonising and b) agonising! Still, if hobbling is your thing I suppose!

I know what you mean - but pointed toes aren't terrible like that - they are fine to wear provided the shoe fits.I mean our toes aren't supposed to go all the way to the end ! And for the uninitiated the more middle of the road the heel on a pointy toe - the more likely you are to get sore toe - flater is ok and very high is ok.

I like them because they are more formal looking and finer - it minimises your feet so they are not glaringly a solid part of your outfit - like aheavy workboot would take over the look for instance - or in this case socks/shoes are very much more visual and significant than a minimal pump.

As indicated too - I'd agree a loafer would do a similar minimal job - there are just so many choices of footwear!

Well, it’s better than being practically terminal...
