I flew home yesterday from Seattle and had to change planes in Chicago. I looked at what guys had on their feet.
I know going through security is a pain-in-the-butt; however, it is so routine now — all you have to do is slip off your boots (or if you must wear them, shoes) and run them through the x-ray. But so many men (and youngsters in their teens and 20s) do not want to do that, so they wear the most awful crap on their feet. I saw more guys wearing flip-flops at the airport than I have seen wear those things on a beach. Ugggghhh! And it was cold, too. Wearing crappy footwear like that must be uncomfortable.
Oh well, I wore my cowboy boots, took them off before security, and got two “nice boots” comments from other guys when I was putting them back on after security. I doubt anyone looks at a guy wearing flip-flops and says, “nice feet.” (LOL!)
Life is short: wear boots!
