#13 Tevas with Socks

Why does this exist? The coupling of a so-called "all-terrain" XTREME sandal and crisp white socks is a situation so dire, it makes the baby Jesus cry. 

The will to "be one with nature" (this is a male theme that resonates not only with the Teva, but also with shark-tooth necklaces and woven hemp bracelets) attracts the male to the "all terrain" promise, but clearly the matching of the sandal with the sock is some sort of "laid back" ideology akin to that of the mullet. You know, business in the front/party  in the back? Instead it assumes the psudeomachismo hiker/housebunny dynamic. Velcro is also involved. Fin.

  1. Having grown up in Vermont, I've seen many a man AND woman indulge in this juxtaposition of white socks and mandals... a faux pas regardless of the time/place/threat.
