So you stained your feet brown and THEN switched over to flip-flops? People probably thought you were wearing a pair of these:



Not that there's anything wrong with that.

When I'm a leasure ( and at my age is most of the time ) it's either sandals or flip- flops and shorts. But then I live in Florida, where you can go to church in shorts and flip- flops ( no I don't ).

I've lived in Florida for 17 years now, and i have never favored the shorts and flip - flop look. Yes, it's ALWAYS brutally hot here, but it's a personal competition between me and mother nature. She hasn't forced me to go that casual yet. Cotton pants / jeans, and loafers is as casual as i go.

Need a new pair of sandals for the beach and pool. (I don't see myself wearing espadrilles.) I don't like sandals w/ buckles and many straps, and certainly not bulky. Light and airy. The flip flop.

I'm thinking of these.

240 Ya hate' em, doncha?

I don't want brown dye all over my feet. Safe to buy? Or should I stick w/ the ol' dependable 100 baht rubber flip flops? Alternate recommendation?

+1, I have yet to wear sandals (or shorts) in Bangkok, where with the heat index we're probably looking at 120+ with humidity... I wear sandals in the beach areas/islands but never on the actual beach (go barefoot there). It's not entirely because sandals are too casual, they also don't give you the height boost/posture of heeled shoes... I feel constantly slouching when I'm wearing flip flops.

Assuming one takes good care of his feet, in the right climate and in a very casual setting sandals are just fine. They needn't be confined to the beach. But they aren't intended for city wear. Use common sense.

FTFY.

You can get away with wearing sandals as long as you wear socks to cover up your feet. Kind of cool to play around with different colors and fits, as long as you don't get too matchy-matchy.

That look has all the wonderful aesthetics of a pair of Crocs.

Bangkok is a bit too filthy for sandals, but I wear shorts. The Thai fellas mostly don't, of course.

The basic rubber flip flops provide no support at all, but the ones I pictured appear to have some support and a bit of a heel. Anyway, a 10-minute walk to the beach doesn't make a walkabout, so support isn't all that necessary. When I'm at the pool or the beach I'm on the piss too, so I reckon I'm slouching - a heel won't help. And the sand is too hot for me feets.

Not a fan of sandals unless you are at the beach, pool or live on an island. No one wants to see your toes, trust me.

Why should I trust you? I could be a highly paid famous foot model. My feet and toes are lovely. A sight to behold.

Well cared for toes have never offended me. Well, at least we agree on more important matters.

And also the playful appeal of the hanky code.

Knox on box.
Sox in crocs.
