‘What on earth is a mankle?’ I hear you ask. Well, to put it simply, when a man goes out in shoes – sans socks – he reveals his ankles. I already show them off for years now, but according to the trends of Summer 2011, mankles are tout le rage. With trousers becoming increasingly shorter and the regular pair of jeans or chinos now being rolled up, hell is breaking loose with the naked mankle infiltrating our streets en masse. Well, in fact, not in Belgium, where men don’t like this look.
I know it’s not comfortable not wearing socks in your shoes, but you can always cheat with a pair of shoe liners (no, not ankle socks!), only covering your heel and toes.
