Let's say flip flops with shorts and a tee.I've gotten mixed feedback. Most women I've talked to in my age range (20s, 30s) say flip flops are best with shorts on a guy and good pretty much anywhere. Yet I don't know too many guys that wear them, even in the summer.

At the beach, or around the house.

Young people can get away with them, but they bug me on older people except for the beach, lake, bbq, etc. Especially if the feet are gross looking!

With pants they are yicky on anybody.

In general, flip flops just seem very sloppy to me.

when ever you feel like it.
it is your feet, your decesion.

no one has the right to tell you what to wear on your feet.



who cares what strangers thing, when they pay your rent, them maybe we can talk.

It's an individual decision. I will wear them on my own patio, or at the beach/pool. I feel like a bit of a slob wearing them in any other circumstance.

What age would you say is the cut off between young and older?

That's kinda what I thought but then some friends said they are acceptable anywhere that shorts are worn. I wasn't so sure about that though

That's what I keep saying, but the guy who works at the convenience store says I can't buy my Slim Jims from him without shoes.

I don't know; they probably are, in general, a lot of the time. *shrug*

I'm just sayin'... I prefer not to be the guy who doesn't bother to put on an actual pair of shoes when out in public. If other people want to be that guy (or girl) they can.
