Yes, I recommend that men (and women) get full pedicures from a salon before wearing sandals. It makes a huge difference especially if you've never had one before. It's a great starting point so that you will know what well-kept feet should look like. LOL. Not only does it improve the look of your feet but it's great for the overall health of your skin, too (you should exfoliate and moisturize regularly). Pedicures last quite a while as long as you continue to maintain it on your own. The average person probably only needs a professional pedi once every other month or so.

Now that I'm wearing them more than I have in the past, I noticed that my feet are getting a little dry.
I see guys all of the time getting pedi's. I took my husband for one several years ago. He had always said something about how nice it must be for ME to get my feet rubbed on and all pampered and he likes it too. He just wanted me to do it but I'm not "into feet". So I took him for one on his birthday (which is today, lol). We both got one. One lady there wanted to take his pic to show her husband that a "man man" could actually get a pedicure as she wanted her husband too. You get pretty rough and dry feet a lot easier wearing socks all of the time or at least I do. Once you get a pedi you will never turn back. Just for the guys, when they tell you to, "pick out color"......... skip that part

I've never had one before and considered getting one but I'm not so sure I could go through with it lol. Do you normally make an appointment when you go or just walk in? When is the best time to go to avoid a big crowd?

In my case, wearing socks all week to work and the gym keep my feet from getting dried out. I guess if I were barefoot and walked around in flip flops every day, it would probably be a different story.

Yes, sandals have become increasingly popular. Their popularity increases exponentially from April ... and into May ... and then into June. It's been happening every year for decades.

I was a teenager in the early/mid 60's and sandals were very popular then - and I remember wearing flip flops as a younger girl.

Today, pretty sandals are still my favorite type of shoe, flat or with a heel. I live in the desert southwest and these type shoes are a mainstay all year round.

I don't know where the OP lives but sandals have been popular with men since the 60's.Go to a area that it is warm and you see guys wearing them with shorts all the time as casual wear.
