I really don’t want to admit that it’s time to move to regular shoes. I am not really into shoes for fashion; it’s all about utility and comfort. Luckily, this summer was the first time I bought myself a pair of Teva sandals, and they are adaptable to the changing seasons. And they really are as comfortable as I had heard. Now that it’s chillier, I’ve still been wearing them. Sometimes with socks.
I’ve never had an aversion to socks with sandals since I grew up with that fashion choice. My sisters haven’t adhered to the family trend, but I find it quite useful. Actually, I don’t think anyone in my family, not even the extended family living in Germany, ever wore pink and purple striped socks with green Tevas. But it made me happy to look down in the Shoprite parking lot at 7 AM on a Sunday and see them.
And just so you don’t think it was a fluke. Here are my same Teva sandals with socks during a hike in Maine. I didn’t want a tic in between my toes, so I wore sandals. (I still got a tic, but not on my feet!)
