No more socks for us! At least I got DH out of the Birkenstocks (and yes, a felony, sometimes socks in the winter---just yuck!
Equator? Maybe it depends where ones live? In super warm climates (SoCal, Florida) or climates in which the summers are very short (i.e. midwest), flip flops seem to be more acceptable. In locations like the east coast or inner city (let's say Boston, NYC), not so much.

Lifetime service and he's had the soles replaced on one pair after wearing them daily for three years and off and on for four years before that. He says these are the most comfortable sandals he's ever had. He bought a second pair when the first had to go in for repair.

Southern Florida so you see more sandals and flip flops than anything else.
Thanks for the suggestion. At least he doesn't have to worry about those falling off lol.

Edit: WHOA! Just noticed they are $300! I've never spent anywhere near that much for shoes let alone sandals, heh.

Flip flops fine for beach, running to supermarket.

Out for casual dinner, sporty or fisherman.
I was thinking maybe flip flops for super casual stuff....and then either "nicer" sandals or the canvas sneakers for the other stuff. Or just sneakers and forget about the sandals/flip flops because there does seem to be a lot of hate for them lol.

I voted for sporty. They are popular around here and open enough to be comfortable and cool. If there's too much shoe, what's the point of wearing sandals if most of your foot is covered up? I do think they are just for very casual events where you'd wear shorts and a t shirt, and a boat shoe or something like that is a little bit nice like going out to a sit down restaurant.

Honestly? Wear what is comfortable to you. Forget what 'everyone else' does. Your back will thank you if you just wear shoes that fit well and are comfortable and give you the support your feet need. If your feet sweat then wear sandals or even flip flops. Personally I don't like wearing flip flops. They irritate the heck out of me with the shoe slapping at the bottom of my heal every step. Not to mention the "slap slap" sound when walking. But that is a personal thing for me. It doesn't bother me when others wear them. I wish I could because they are super easy to just throw on and look nicely cool and casual when the look calls for that.

I love that he spent that much on a pair of shoes (let alone 2 pair!)....he cannot EVER say anything about how much I have ever spent on a pair of shoes. I have never spent that much on even 3 pairs at one time! ROFL.

He has flat feet and these give him the support that he needs.

I like the sporty or fishermen, because too much of men's feet is never good. lol Canvas is good as well. Flip flops no...

Whatever is most comfortable to you.
I wouldn't really worry about what anyone else thinks, they're YOUR feet.

Life is too short to put up with people who would judge your footwear. lol
