I was just reading the thread discussing toenail polish, and a few times the expression "man feet" was brought up in a derisive way.

 

Even if men take care of their feet and have pedicures, I still think that men should keep their socks on or wear closed shoes. I've seen nasty men's feet in flip flops which literally turn my stomach, especially in a restaurant where people are trying to eat. Along with wife beater shirts or tank tops, it's really not a great sight to see while eating.

 

Please don't think I hate men because I don't. I just think that there are certain parts of a man's body that should be covered, and their feet are definitely two of them.

What on earth is a "wife beater shirt"?  I've never heard that expression, ever.

 

And men are ridiculed for wearing socks with sandals, so I guess that means they can never wear them?  Seems pretty harsh.

 

I can honestly say that I've never paid that much attention to other men when I'm out and about or especially in a restaurant.  Not unless they're causing a scene or particularly unkempt.  If I'm with a friend, my focus is on my friend.  If I'm with my husband, my focus is on him.

Venezia, "wife beater" shirts are the old-fashioned, tank-top-like undershirts worn by many men.

 

I agree with you, though, that such apparel (including sandals worn without socks) does not affect my appetite.

@insomniac2- Thanks for the explanation.  I guess I don't come from a background of "wife beaters"  - thank God!  Woman Frustrated

Taking care of your feet is simply good hygiene. Men need to do it as well as women.

Like many many things you don't have to have wife beaters in your background to be aware of them.

DH's profession keeps him on his feet for most of the day. He, therefore, has always taken very good care of them. He goes for pedicures with clear polish probably more frequently than I go for a pedicure. His feet are lovely!!!!!
