Ankles are in. Smelly shoes are not.
While this might befuddle the average man or woman, you know that loafer liners are a must to accomplish prime ankle nudity while avoiding stinky feet syndrome. THE best loafer liners come courtesy of Hook & Albert (famed lapel pin manufactures as well). They’re sold in a variety of fun colors (think gaspachu and grenadine) and are made with Peruvian cotton (aka soft fabric you want on your feet). So buy a pair already and never feel embarrassed about talking your shoes off again.
