Hell is Wet Socks

I need footwear for the out-of-doors across that's appropriate for at least three seasons, if not four. While my feet are snowflakes, I don't think I have to worry about stepping in snow … do I? What about rainy puddles or streams? [more inside]

FEET. OMG. (sweaty cold feet in the winter)

How do I keep my feet dry and warm throughout the day in the winter? I am typically traveling by subways and city buses in suburban Toronto and I go in and out of heated spaces for work. Thin socks won't cut; thick socks are sweated through by lunch. [more inside]

Shopping for Disney shoes for August

A portmanteau for this man's poor toes:
  • Are Keen Newports good shoes for a long trip to Disney World in August? If not, what beats them? I mean, can I simply wear my running shoes?
  • Do you try on footwear like this with or without socks?
  • Do you allow extra room on the assumption that your feet will swell in the steam heat?

    What various socks are best for work, walking, lounging, and more?

    Askmefites always recommend socks. The best gift for dad, the best thing to spend money on, the best things to put on your feet, etc. Sometimes they recommend brands, sometimes they recommend uses of the socks. Usually, they just say "buy good socks". This is basically a question asking for more details. [more inside]

    Why do male porn stars wear socks and shoes?

    Why do male porn actors so often wear socks and shoes while otherwise naked in adult movies? It's true that high heels are prevalent among the females but at least one could argue there's some aesthetic point to that. The guys' choice of footwear, meanwhile, is nearly always awful. Is there a practical or cultural reason for the men wearing socks, shoes and sometimes hats and sunglasses?

    Holy Socks, Batman!

    My dad is constantly wearing holes in the heels of his socks. After recently going through about $100 worth of new socks, it's time for a new course of action. He realizes that this means spending $10-$20 for each pair of socks, and he wants to make sure that his pricey new socks are going to last. Any personal recommendations for amazingly durable socks?

    I have a huge problem with buying shoes that feel fine in the 10-second walk around but give me mad heel blisters after walking for 5 minutes. The shoe continously rubs up and the back of my heel/achille's tendon area. Anyone have similar problems and/or know of a remedy? Certain socks, tie your shoes a certain way. something you can buy- I'm all ears (beyond returning them or just not wearing them).
