D id you know that an unfashionable wearer of both socks AND sandals at the same time can be defined as being a shandle. Also spotter of such crime can also be refereed to as a shandleir. These Shandlites are mainly seen in European countries during the summer time and normally they are male.

Last trip I was posting pics of myself sitting beside a pool with socks (maybe something to do with being born in Finland). This time it is only my sandals, no socks or feet.

    Wearing socks & sandals is a certified nerd style. It’s obligatory in this house, especially when the sandals in question are Birkenstocks.
    Good photo, BTW.
