White Socks

Although I am a baseball fan, I am not writing about the famous Chicago Club but only about white tennis socks in sandals.


It is true that a couple of years ago, white socks were a necessary summer accessory for old German men who liked airy feet in hot weather but did not like them naked.

A long time ago, number one in soccer.
From here a legend was born culminating in the myth that all stuffy bourgeois German males walking in sandals through European tourist resorts wear white tennis socks.





The pictures above I collected on the Internet over the years. On the contrary, below are Red Baron's bare, unattractive feet.


I show them naked from mid-April to mid-October wearing just sandals come rain or come shine.
