Shoesday: Advice Edition

I have been getting a lot of blog hits about Tevas lately. I’m not sure why, but I’m guessing I’ve mentioned them lately? I have also been getting a lot of hits on my flickr site for this picture:

Perhaps the two are related. Maybe, 3 years ago, I posted this pic & talked about wearing Tevas. I am much too lazy to go look right now.


ANYWAYS, most of the searches are about “wearing socks with Tevas.”

In Jeopardy style, the question that goes with that statement is: “What fashion faux pas is still only marginally acceptable even on a super cold morning while camping in the middle of nowhere?”

Yes, I am wearing socks with sandals. And no, that is not right. I should not have done it, and furthermore, I should not have posted documentation of this sartorial sin.

So, socks and Tevas questers – just because I have done it, doesn’t mean you should. Especially not in public. Not at the supermarket. No, not even at the convenience store down the street.

Just say no to socks with sandals. (Also, say no to Crocs unless you a) are in a nursing or related profession and are on your feet for 12-ish hours a day, b) are in the garden where no one will see, c) have just run a whole bunch of marathons and are planning on running another in a couple of days and are named Carrie, or d) are a small child [I guess].)

    For the record, my kids live in their crocs. I don’t wear them that much. But being 4 and 6, they can put those shoes on by themselves and they don’t have to be tied. I’ll take it.

    I was the king of socks and sandals 10 years ago. Now I just make fun of Kelley when she does it. And anything goes when you’re cold weather camping! but nothing *has* to leave the campsite.

      well, I did give the kids a pass, so they’re okay. I’m not sure what you mean by you don’t wear them “that much,” but I’m going to pretend that means you don’t even own crocs.
