Ha, i like it. This brings a smile upon my face. But i must admit; leather sandals worn with socks is a nono for me. ;-)

Sweet greetz!

Oh but I am sure it is a stylish sandal since the Romans make so much fun for American tourist footwear.

The Romans wouldn't have been wearing socks with their sandals. Too uncool for them. They were the style setters. Ha.

Roman soldiers use to urinate on their feet to cure chilblains or other feet disorders,

What a daggy fashion statement wearing sandals and socks.

Thanks for the comments Everyone.

Most seemed as surprised as I was by the Roman lack of sartorial elegance - not to mention machismo.

One only has to walk along the front in any British seaside resort to see this sartorial style. That and knotted hankies!

I just didn't realise that we owed it all to the Romans!

It depends on the socks Dave! I'm wearing some swedish things with my sandals as I can't cope any more with this blessed cold!!
