kick off your sunday shoes....
What is it about men and flip-flops?
I'm not a massive fan of flip-flops generally, to be honest. I can see how they're practical when you are in the showers at the gym or on the beach or something, but beyond that I haven't really got any use for them.
So why have men started wearing them around town? Perhaps it's just Nottingham, but I see it all the time: guys wandering around town with over-sized sunglasses, gelled hair, fitted t-shirts, designer jeans and wearing flip-flops.
It's not as though Nottingham is the sunniest city in the world or anything, but the weather doesn't seem to make a jot of difference. It can be pissing with rain and still you see these people, flaunting their dirty feet to the world.
I just don't get it.
They're not that comfortable, they're not that practical and -- let's be honest -- most men simply don't have feet that should be seen in public.
Is this the modern metrosexual male in action?
If so, I'm simply not having it.
David Beckham has got a lot to answer for.
