You may wish to check out either Teva or Naot sandals. Naot's come with a removable footbed to accomodate orthotics.

Look I will be the first to admit I am not a style guru, but it's a bit like ladies who wear pantyhose with open toe shoes, it's just a no-no, looks dreadful.

I would be more than happy to meet you at any time, just promise you will keep your feet under the table so I would not have to see them as I would find it very distracting.

Just wondering, for those of you who wear socks with sandals, have you checked how high up you are pulling your pants, as I have noticed that people who do wear socks with sandals usually look like their pants are pulled up to their armpits and are strangling them.

Stereotypist!

My pants are stylishly low, it's just that on cool but dry NW days sandals keep the feet nice and airy, and socks keep them nice and warm.

Anyway, it apparently isn't a universal turnoff.

Gee, and to think I thought nobody would catch my question about shoes. Thanks folks for all the ideas I have to check out now.

HaHa, Birkenstocks are known as the shoe favorite of lesbians. I wouldn't be caught dead in them..haha! However, for guys, they're masculine and neat.
I know a gal who worked in an office in DC for years. Don't know what she did but she's degreed. Anyway, she tells how she "never fit in." Then she goes on to tell me she wore Birkenstocks everyday....in DC? In her office? Quelle surprise? Not. What a dork...at least in my woman's world she would be.

I admit to wearing funky wool socks with sandals and jeans in the fall; I like warm feet and open toes and I think they look cute. And there's a reason "sandalfoot" hose were invented--gee, I wonder why they're called that.

Different strokes for different folks.
