I have a secret. I have occasionally been wearing socks and sandals (together!). I think I have discovered the most comfortable footwear ever possible. Yes, I know that there is a sort of joke that only doddery old men wear socks and sandals because they are so unaware of how stupid they look. Guess what? Those socks and sandal wearing old fogies are not at all stupid - or crazy - or senile. They are definitely "onto" the best footwear secret in the world! Seriously! Try it sometime. Of course it has to be in secret, lest someone sees you and labels you 'nutty'! If ever I have the sandals & socks thing going and am enjoying the blissful comfort of it, I am also extremely aware that I must not be seen in such apparel. The other day, I was sitting at the computer, wearing some ordinary comfortable clothes that I don't mind people seeing me wearing, but that also included socks and sandals..... and, when I heard a car pull up in the driveway, I was very careful - and very quick - to slip off the sandals and pull of the socks, chucking them under a cushion, before the visiting friends came to the door. It's a bit like hiding a drinking problem or pretending not to have just had a forbidden cigarette, or something. The socks must not be seen with the sandals. Sandals on their own are OK. As are socks, I guess. But the fact remains...socks with sandals = bliss for feet!
One day this sock & sandal 'double act' will be the newest fashion statement and people will be embracing the latest comfort look! Just you wait and see. (And all those old men will be laughing!
