5 Lessons Every Man Should Know About Wearing Sandals

Alright fellas… Here’s the truth about guys wearing sandals. Are you ready? OK… No one wants to see our big, hairy, sweaty feet! Remember the last time a girl said to you, “Hey, you have sexy feet” or how about that one time you’re fellow bro told you “dude, those sandals are sweet!”? Of course you don’t! You know why? Because men’s feet aren’t the best thing to look at.

Unlike women’s feet, which tend to be petite, soft and well-groomed, men have big, hairy feet and that’s OK because we’re men. Even the best groomed man can’t do anything about french fry looking toes. If you can’t stand looking at another dude’s feet for a second, imagine what your girl thinks when you decide to wear flip flops all day.

So I know what you’re saying, “It’s hot. What do I wear to the beach? How can I wear sandals if I don’t want to be so casual?”. What I’m saying is: there is a way for us men to enjoy the feeling of wearing sandals and at the same time look good and stylish.

Here are 5 lessons to get you looking good in sandals:

Lesson #1: Find a pair that covers the majority of your feet

Men’s sandals with thick straps help make those anchors attached to your ankles look smaller because they cover the majority of your feet. They also help cover any “feet issues” we may be self conscious about. So you get to enjoy the feeling of wearing sandals all while keeping those paws in check.

Lesson #2: Avoid wearing flip flops

I enjoy the comfort of flip flops just like the next man but save that for home. Wearing flip flops only make your feet look bigger.

 Lesson #3: Get a Pedicure

Keep them clean gentlemen. You’re feet will be on display and people will stare. Make sure to keep your feet well groomed just like any other part of your body. You’re feet have been in hibernation all winter so you don’t want them looking like hobbit feet seeing daylight for the first time. A pedicure will get your feet ready for spring and summer.

Lesson #4: Trim Your Feet Hair

There’s just something gross about hairy feet. It’s just as bad as seeing a guy with visible nose hairs sticking out. Part of grooming your feet includes trimming or even shaving them.

Lesson #5 Moisturize

Our feet usually don’t see a lot of daylight so make sure to avoid dry, cracked skin by applying moisturizer when they do come out to play. It’s best to apply lotion right after you shower, but if you have extra dry feet, try slathering on some cream (which is heavier than lotion) before bed and sleep with your socks on. The next morning, your feet will be soft and smooth.

SoCal magazine is a cultural portal for all things West.
This magazine will speak to the owners of a SoCal lifestyle revealing an array of topics that can only be found here in the rich culturally diverse, geographically paradoxical state of mind that stretches from the ocean to the desert.

We are about the people who create—art, music, film, from broadcast to podcast, people in the know.

SoCal has reach — we have a wide audience that ranges from the north of Santa Barbara to the fringes of San Diego and even occasionally wander  below the border to the sublime Baja coastline. The sprawl that is is SoCal encompasses so much diversity, both physically, emotionally and psychologically — LA is the unique American experience.
We strive to be different, for that is what makes this place, the place we call SoCal so alluring.
