I’ve been wearing colouful socks with these Suicoke trekking sandals pretty much since I bought them a couple of summers ago. This season I tried the same with a pair of gorgeous but maddening Trippens, which are blissfully comfortable until a predictable moment in the afternoon when they are not. Wearing them with socks makes perfect sense and I wonder why I never thought of it before. It’s like having a new pair of shoes.

Something I would have sneered at as a youngster is starting to feel like second nature. Apparently, Fashion agrees.

How about you? Are you wearing socks and sandals? Or will you be giving this trend a miss?
