I gave up vanity a long time ago myself in favor of comfort, which is why I don't care if other people don't like seeing my toes.

ever try driving wearing flip flops? it doesnt feel right to me?
I tried to ride my bike with flip flops right after a pedicure. My feet were too slippery, and I had to go up hill. It was a super fail. I was struggling walking up the hill with my bike. And the flops had a textured sole!

I will give up my shorts and wear a dhoti instead.
You know, when I first saw the title of the thread I thought of you.

So which is it? Shorts or sandals? Oh, wait a minute, I see your answer.

My question is about whether Hawaiian shirts go better with sneakers or sandals.

No Kidding . It was a nice deja vu. I gave up this practice long back though.

Sorry, but I am a critical thinker and need know WHY on stuff like this. Also, being in Los Angeles and a frequent beach goer, I cant imagine why anyone would think of HAVING to give up one.
I agree, I am swimming against the tide myself. I don't go to the beach but when I am not working I am wearing my shorts and my Crocs (never before wore flip flops in my life)...and I keep my feet in tip-top 'pedi' condition (winter, summer, spring, and fall).

As well as many other cities across North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and maybe Antarctica as well (can't honestly say for sure).

I never (or at least rarely...never say never) wear flip flops, or even sandals. So definitely give those up. To be honest, I wish most people would. Flip flops are nasty.

I think everyone should get pedicures occasionally. Men and women!

Well yeah, its just a silly question. But thats usually what "Would You Rather.." questions are.

I personally do not wear shorts, and I hate wearing socks, so of course I would choose to go without shorts in favor of sandals. I want to move somewhere warmer where I can wear sandals year round, or at least wear them without the fear of my feet getting frost bite.
