I've always worn tennis shoes and boots with my shorts. My girlfriend has tried to convince me to wear flip flops but I wouldn't wear them. She bought me a pair of sport sandals for an upcoming trip we're taking but I cannot bring myself to wear them either. But I found these shoes online which are a half shoe/half sandal:

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?

I have gray Keens, similar in style...call 'em my sweatshirt shoe. Husband owns several pairs. I won't say they are the most attractive shoes, but the comfort and functionality call for a 5-star rating. I wear mine when I don't care if it's fashionable, with hoodies, tees and long jersey skirts or cargo shorts...a time and place for everything.
Not a jeans shoe.

ehh. Not too keen on them, Bulldog.

But I do like something like these:


Propet
Men's Sandals
Surf Walker

Aye mateys!!!

Bulldog, you are just like my hubster. He won't wear sandals of any kind either. He wears boots & tennis shoes with shorts all the time, also.

I like those sandals, especially if you don't want to expose your toes. Have fun on your trip!!!

Actually, I'm grateful that my SO doesn't wear sandals. If there was one, he would be a shoo-in for the ugliest feet award. He usually wears boat shoes when wearing shorts. But for men who don't have his problem, the ones you posted aren't bad, but I like the ones that B4U posted.

Sporty looking--if you're the athletic type you can pull this look off. Are those "elf toes" really comfortable? Always go for comfort. Tip: when you try shoes on in the store--walk on the hard floor, too.

I don't think your legs are skinny. Neither are your arms. But what's with the face?
You DO need some sun! LOL!
