The Tourist. (Sandals)
Depending on where you grew up, the whole sock and sandal trend has never been anything new. If you grew up in a big city, this style wouldn’t garner a second glance. This look is also a normalcy with men over 60 in many European towns as well as vacation dads around the world. The key to the this classic trend is how men associate open toe footwear with socks. Majority of the time, a man will opt comfortability over fashion, thus socks plays no conflict in the decision making. It is quite comfortable, keeps feet clean, and frankly there’s no need to show off non-pedicured toes. Here we are once again, copying someone’s dad or nerdy uncle as if on holiday. It totally works.
