At my age you could not care less about such things - one of the many delights and reliefs of the ageing process. When, rarely, people comment on my footwear I tell them that I am a trend-setter and that EVERYBODY will be wearing sandals and socks this year. If it's somebody I judge may appreciate the subtlety I say Season rather than Year.
IMAGINE MY DELIGHT THEN TO DISCOVER THESE ON THE INTERNET:
Socks made to look like sandals and socks.
I rest my case.
