Even the briefest outing to a public place will tell you that most men in sandals have never, ever given the appearance of their feet the slightest consideration.

Guys - if you want to wear sandals- a good bumper toed pair of Keen's is the ticket. You can go bare foot in them or you can wear a nice pair of black socks in them - even black knee highs; with checkered Bermuda shorts and a 'wife beater' t-shirt... it's awesome!

The last men that were suppose to wear sandals were the Apostles!!! All men look ridiculous in sandals...time to start to get a clue men. Leave the sandals to the women.

BECAUSE I don't take care of my feet and I want to have comfort I wear socks with sandals. Trust me, you'd rather see my socks than my feet. We guys don't suffer for our fashion :)

Take your advice and stuff it! My feet are my own business and I would never even consider a Pedicure--what an insult. I cut my toenails, I wash my feet, and I am a man-. If you do not like my feet than don't look. What the average man has to look at in the female arena is a little too much for my tolerance some time. Overweight women wearing body stockings---women wearing shoes that would kill most feet, women exposing too much of themselves and are definitely not "boofle". So lay off my feet and we will get along.

west1336 - why not? why should women be the only ones who get to indulge in something that is enjoyable and worth every penny? there is nothing wrong with men taking care of themselves.

As a man, I have learned that I am awesome. My feet don't concern me because of that fact. Women and "enlightened" men may nitpick my sense of style, but cannot resist when they bask in the radiance of my manly aura.

Many kids don't like to wear sandals because they consider them "Jesus shoes".

mouthwash I have never heard that before. I raised 3 boys and thought they looked adorable in sandals when they were kids. My children were raised in the church too and I've never heard the term "Jesus shoes".
