And I though get it couldn't get any worse than socks with sandals 😂

There used to be an MNposter who said: "Kill him" in response to egregious violations of, well anything that took their fancy.

In their absence: Kill him.grin

But how? Does he have socks with toes?

rosie1959 Thu 13-Jun-19 06:55:19

I read somewhere it's totally on trend to wear socks with sandals
Still looks bloody ridiculous to me

GummyGoddess Thu 13-Jun-19 06:55:24

Honestly? LTB. He must know he looks ridiculous! Partners and friends are there to tell you when you look stupid.

How does that even work anyway? How can you wear socks with flip flops? Doesn’t the sock stop the bit going between his toes? Or do you mean slider style flip flops?
Either way, he will look ridiculous!
Let him strop off and mull it over... he will thank you one day!

How do you stomp off wearing flip flops? grin

Is he a Geisha girl?

Sycamoretrees Thu 13-Jun-19 06:58:25

Round the house or outside?

topcat2014 Thu 13-Jun-19 06:58:35

Maybe there are special socks?

I love the Daily Mash for this kind of thing

"Man wears hat to look like Peaky Blinders, ends up looking like Last of the Summer Wine" - that kind of thing.

I have worn 'sliders' instead of slippers for years, sometimes with socks thick fluffy ones and now my teens laugh and tell their friends I was way ahead of the crowd grin
If he wears this combo outside of the house, I agree. Kill him.

I can confirm it is possible to wear socks with flipflops if the socks are thin and stretchy rather than sports type socks. I've done it more than once when dashing out to bring the washing in when raining, it's not exactly my go-to choice of footwear though, and would never do it in public!

Teaandchocolatecake Thu 13-Jun-19 07:02:18

I’ve never said it before but LTB!

Exactly what I thought (and would have asked him) grin.

LifeIsGoodish Thu 13-Jun-19 07:11:41

It's a thing.

You are probably NBU. Depends on circumstances, OP. We need more info.

I do it for 20 sec at the pool - take shoes off at door of changing room, replace with flip flops and walk to changing cubicle with socks and flip flops. If your DH is walking down your local HIgh St with socks and flip flops, especially if they are the ones with a toe post, YANBU.

How do you stomp off wearing flip flops?

grin

That's a picture!

Growing up in Southern California, this is how we'd spot an Armenian dad at the swimming pool. Black socks with sandals? Armenian dad. grin

ScrumpyBetty Thu 13-Jun-19 07:22:23

Noooo! That's a crime against flop flops. LTB immediately.

Zakana Thu 13-Jun-19 07:24:56

Buy him some Crocs, it’ll be easier to wear socks with lol, then you can decorate them with little Croc Jibbitz 😂😂😂😂😂xx

Drogosnextwife Thu 13-Jun-19 07:28:05

Apparently it's all the rage just now, well sliders (I think that's what everyone is calling them) and socks right up the calfs. Looks ridiculous imo. If he's wearing actual flip flops with toe posts, how does he walk?

MrsMozartMkII Thu 13-Jun-19 07:28:33

Love the stomping off in socks and flipflops image grin

Agree. Kill him.

RottnestFerry Thu 13-Jun-19 07:55:05

I laughed at my nephew for doing the white socks with "sliders" thing. I got chastised by my sister because apparently, it was the height of youth fashion. That was last year though.

Hahaha88 Thu 13-Jun-19 07:59:37

@InMyBloodstainedSundaysBest I'm also a quick shove flips on over socks to run the bin out grab washing etc but your name in relation to this has made me laugh, it's as though your flip flops made your feet bleed onto your Sundays best socks lol

Seriously though he wasn't going to go out properly with through the toe flip flops and socks surely??(

I have laughed out loud to three of these responses. People at work ar looking at me funny 😂
