    Slide vs. Thong Sandals

    Anyone else fall on one side of this preference with a strong hatred of the other side?

    I can't stand the thongs. I need slides that won't bug the shit out of my toes everytime I move.

    My dilemma is my 5 year old slides that I paid like 140 bucks for are finally wearing out. The design company is now defunct, but I can find the thong versions of my sandals on a cheap discount like 40 bucks. I'm trying to decide if I could grow to like them.

    Short of that, I'm going to just buy some leather and construct my own.

    The thongs ones look more tropical which is cool in my book so I wear them daily. Slides are for douchbag frat boys.

    I'm not a fan of sandals (nor a frat boy) but if I had to buy a pair it would be slides.

    Thongs look tropical? Does that also apply to people with stinky Flip Flops? I don't like the sound of them.

    I think we can all agree that wearing socks with sandals make you look like a wanker.

    I've been quite happy with these:


    I also have a pair of thong sandals, one of those plastic Havaianas (sp?) ones. Personally I think sandals are great for summer use. Also, my feet sweat profusedly and the odor makes short work of any tennis or skateboard shoes

    I wear flip flops around the house and when I'm just hanging out.

    They suck something fierce for doing any kind of real walking.
    There is too much confusion.

    Fuck-sandals, for when you want to look casual and bang at the same time. For that exciting traction that you desire while still leaving the chance to get some cream on your foot. Fuck-sandals.

    Stinky? They're all stinky cuz they're on your feet. But yes I like the tropical look. I live on the coast. It's hot and there is water everywhere. So my daily attire consists of sandals and board shorts.

    Well, most Flip Flops are made of plastic foam and that stuff is way more stinky than the leather variety.

    I hate the sound of sweaty or wet feet and Flip Flops, the combination of sucking and clapping really wears me out. Not as bad as eating noises but it's enough to make me angry.

    Slides. Thongs rub between my toes too much and slides are easier to pop off when driving.

    Pretty much all I wear are sandals, unless I'm going to work. They're just so easy to manage. I takes half a second to put them on, and half a second to take them off. I wear sandals in the snow; I don't give a fuck. Slides all the way, too. Thong version is only to be used if you have to shower at a health club or something.

    I will say this: wearing sandals almost exclusively for 20 years, they will fuck your feet up. I get gnarly callouses around my heel around my heel from time to time, but I get regular pedicures so whatevs

    I'm not a big fan of thongs. They either end up giving me a blister somewhere or falling apart or something. I just find them uncomfortable.

    I have a pair of Sanuks that are pretty awesome. They're comfortable as hell, easy to get on and off, and can be worn with the back folded down when I'm especially lazy (they came that way new, even). Added bonus: when the cats piss on them, I can just throw them in the washer and they're fine.

    looks like your dress shoes had an unexpected meeting with the lawnmower.

    Nice dangly tassels though.

    Thong sandals don't bother me at all and I own 2 pairs which I almost always wear outside the house unless if I have to go to work or the setting I'm heading to calls for some sorta footwear protection.
