Hope you never become diabetic.  If you do, socks always, no sandals, no flip flops.

You're not alone! To me, wearing closed toe shoes without socks is like wearing pants without underwear! That being said, I don't like the look of socks, so I wear no-show socks with my closed toe shoes. Bombas work well. 


In the warm months, I wear mostly flip-flops so no socks, but I rotate several pairs and replace all of them every year.

I always wear some type of sock in closed-toed shoes.


For those of you who hate wearing socks, if your shoe has a removable insole, you can cover it with a no-show sock (backwards with the opening on the underside) so at least the footbed is protected. I do this with a pair of house shoes. I change out the socks covering the insoles weekly.

I live in the deep, steamy, hot south and summer for us is 6-7 months. 

I wear sandals during that time, and wedges into the fall. No socks. 


For the 4-5 months that I can wear closed in shoes (boots) I do wear socks. I've never been comfortable with how the inside of shoe like that feels without a sock on. 


The good news is my socks last forever lol

I love shoes without socks.  In fact I hate wearing socks but I have to wear them in the winter if it is really cold but I have two pair of Uggs so I never wear socks with them.  Right now it is fashionable for men to wear shoes without socks.  That's what I like about most gay men, they will rock that look and a few straight guys too.
