    I say it depends on the situation. I have to wear socks in the winter. My feet get too cold without them.

    In the summer, sneakers with no socks are very comfortable. It looks so much better too. If you're wearing shorts, you should never wear socks in your sneakers.

    They really shouldn't stink unless you don't air them out after use. You will also have to wash them more regularly. When worn without socks,the liner in your shoes becomes like the sock, and absorbs all the sweat. If you don't wash your shoes, they will smell like unwashed socks.

    Socks absorb the sweat off of your feet. They help keep your shoes dry. Sometimes when you wear shoes without socks, you can get blisters from your shoes.

    Your socks will save your shoes. Not only from perspiration odor, but deterioration of the linings and insole of your shoes.

    We weren't meant to wear enclosed shoes. We do out of necessity, cold and concrete, but it causes excessive perspiration without evaporation..

    Wear socks. They wick away moisture and keep you from getting callouses. Don't, under any circumstance, wear socks with sandals.

    I don't like to wear socks if I'm wearing shorts or capris. They just look weird. Otherwise, I do.
