Rad or Bad? Dudes Step Out in Socks with Mandals

We've seen some crazy things on the men's runway lately, but while it's easy to point a horrified finger at tube tops, turbans, and dresses for guys, we're starting to wonder if it's really fair to let only females get away with some of the quirkier flights of fashion fancy. Case in point: When we saw a preview image from Opening Ceremony's Summer 2010 lookbook featuring socks and sandals on model Andrew Shimomura, we simply stifled a giggle and moved on, but back when Chloë Sevigny stepped out in a similarly grade-school approved ensemble, we seriously pondered if we could pull off the look. But after some more thought, we decided to open it up to you—can dudes get in on this kooky sandal-ed sock hop stylishly, or does it belong strictly in German tourist territory?
