Egh...I don't like those types of shoes at all. I think slip on vans look best with shorts:
Vans Classic Slip-On® Core Classics at Zappos.com

W/ short socks:
Wrightsock Coolmesh® Lo Double Layer 6-Pair Pack at Zappos.com (http://www.zappos.com/product/7180352/color/14 - broken link)


Sandals look stupid on guys...Tell her to stop the madness.

And iron your t-shirts dude!
(lazy dude method: throw t-shirt in dryer with damp clean washcloth for a tumble of a few minutes)

Vans are cool, but no good in mud or on a mountain. That's why today I wear ugly shoes.

They are breathable but also do not expose the toes so it might be a good compromise since she wants me in sandals and I've always worn regular shoes.
Just wondering what you all think. Would they look good with cargo shorts or too dorky?
Wow I really hate those...those....sandal/truck tire/tree stump thingies. Truly godawful. Even frightening.

Bulldog, how about boat shoes? My hubby hates sandals and he wears dock shoes, no socks with his cargo shorts. I think they look good. JMO

I love dockers too. They go with long pant & shorts.

Best is bare feet though, I gotta say.

Just wear the flip flops like your girlfriend suggests...she knows what you look best in. I had the same issue as you. I always wore shoes and socks and would never wear sandals. A girlfriend bought me some flip flops and I refused to wear them at first. She eventually convinced me to wear them. And guess what? I actually enjoy wearing them and wear them all the time in the summer.

Those are hideous. They look like correction sandals. The ones in post #3 are much, much better.
