Out shopping the other day and I decided to buy my boyfriend a pair of flip flops from topman. We live by seaside and if the weathers good, we shud be spending loads of time at the beach this summer and i don't want him waering his old smelly trainers all summer.
But when I showed them to him today, he said that he wouldn't wear them as they look "queer" :icon_err: I don't see anything wrong with them, but is this a general guy thing about hating flip flops (btw they were plain blue ones, not pink or anything! lol)

Flip flops on a man are gay. If he isn't man enough to walk with bare feet then flip flops will do him fine.

How about black flip-flops with black socks and black pants for going out and about. Are they gay then?

Flip flops with socks is a THOUSAND times more gay for both men AND women.

And they're big black steel-toed boots. Makes me feel like a big man. I like knowing that if a rabid dog attacks me, I can kick his skull in.

A man needs that sense of security.

I have no problem with flip flops on guys. I go to college though so just about every guy on campus wears flip flops... and really just about every person.

you can't walk around a college campus in the spring, summer, or fall without seeing a good amount of guys wearing flip-flops...i dont see how anyone can call wearing them "gay" unless the persons also wearing socks.

i have some blue ones from jcrew and i like 'em.

Flip flops are extremely gay. Boots are the way to go. I hardly wear tennis shoes let alone flip flops. I usually wear black leather steel toe work boots. Only preppy pretty boys wear flip flops.

Mandy

Hmmm I guess I can understand it in the summer when it's really hot. But seriously, I wasn't kidding about the hobbit feet thing because some guys' feet are freakin' gnarly. Clip your toenails if you gotta wear 'em, boys.

Been a Brit i assume flip flops to be those flat plastic sandal things with a plastic loop that goes over and between you big toe. If so this is vvvvv gay for a man to wear.

On the other hand if you mean sports sandals by nike/reebok etc. these are fine, you see men all over wearing them when its warm. It saves your feet sweating in trainers because as we all know wearing shorts means you most certainly can't wear socks with trainers (again gay).

I agree though socks with either is a definite no no.

Only one man in the history of mankind could wear flip flops, without looking gay. His name is/was Don Miller. He was my baseball coach and, a biiiiiiit of a drinker.
Okay...so he bought half of a liquor store as a "business venture".
And, yes, he used to cover himself in seaweed and go "trick-or-beering" on Halloween...and if you didn't give him a beer, he stuffed your mailbox with seaweed.
Anyway, he used to wear those el-cheapo rubber flip flops from Walgreens that cost $1.99 for three pairs in assorted colors. He bumped around in mismatched pairs of those all the time, but only because they required no effort, whatsoever.

if you ask me, someone wearing sandals with straps that velco/lock and go around the ankle and all that other shit look a lot more gay than a good pair of flip flops.

I can't stand wearing flip-flops (the strap that comes up in between the big toe & second toe hurts like hell...how do you people deal???). I agree with Mandy on the Hobbit feet thing, shave the hair boys...or nair. Pretty boys and Gay boys wear flip-flops. I like the river sandals with the velcro, they're comfy and my feet must be comfy!!!! Birks were cool when they were in fashion and those were the only sandals that COULD be worn with socks. Major fashion no-no socks with sandals...even the athletic fat-strap sandals.

As a straight dude in California I don't mind wearing flip-flops. I find them quite comfortable in the summer time. The only thing I don't like about them is the make that floppy sound everyime you take a step which kinda gets a lil bit annoying, but other than that they're splendered, yes I know splendered, it a word, ok it isn't but now it is.

Richard
21-05-2006, 11:35 PM
I think it's about time I say that I do wear flip flops, but the thick/heavy ones. For Kriv's reasons; it is comfortable, but I also wear them year-round on occasions. Fact is, they don't bother me and I don't think they bother anyone else. I don't have hobbit feet, so that isn't an issue. Plus, it's quicker to put on.

As a straight guy, also, from California, I'd rather be labeled as lame rather than gay.

Gaah. Shorts are worse than flip-flops!

This could be because I never EVER wear shorts and so flip-flops have never really been a necessity. I live in London after all considering how much it pissed down with rain yesterday (in May no less!) I doubt I'll be needing flip flops, shorts or sunblock anytime soon.

I also never go on holiday to a beach. I hate beaches. Loathsome places full of vain freaks wearing flip flops and shorts. Plus what the hell do you DO on a beach? If I want to sit and laze around in the sun I can do that in my garden! In the one week of sunshine we get, I mean.

Add the scantily clad women to it. Although in England thats more of a negative than a plus, 40something pikey grandmothers hanging out all over the place in children size bikinis... ach.

I may well have to start wearing flip flops. I've decided I'm not one for following any particular style trends, standing out in a crowd is always fun. Besides, due to my feet becoming more and more bruised and swollen as the months go by, I doubt I'll be able to fit into any shoes designed for normal people within a year.
Flipflops may be the only way for me to go.

If you get some good ones that don't have the plastic strap it doesn't hurt your feet and are way more comfy than anything. Flip-flops just kick ass, so easy, and comfy. Your feet don't sweat, they're cheap... Birks still kick ass. Although I'm from one of the most hippie-tasic towns in the midwest, so maybe that's just the hippie in me coming out.

I go to college in the colonies!

I think my opinion is very bias because of my location. Rochester = cold. So when a guy where's flip flops it's not because he's going to just hang out down by the beach, it's because he watched MTV and thinks he's cool. It's like if all the sudden a show called 'The Arctic Sluts' took over youth-television and people in Cali were wearing long winter coats all year round. It's so obviously a fad. So I guess if the location's right, it's fine. But I'll stick to my sneakers. (NIKE FC's, man, 50 bucks at footaction....bargain!)

That's good to hear. I have hobbit feet but then I resemble a hobbit in many ways (I was approached to be the token ethnic hobbit in LOTR). I, however, am too manly to shave anywhere but my head or my face.
