ROCKING SHOES WITH NO SOCKS

The classic socksless look goes with certain occasions. More and more men are going for this look especially during the summer. The kind of liberation exposes your ankles and calves to the elements and lets them enjoy the seasonal sun alongside the rest of you.

From boat shoes, oxford, moccasins, loafer, to low-cut sneakers to vans.

Mostly anything can work be it denim ,shorts, khaki wear, suits, and even light weight summer wear.
