    No man should ever wear any form of sandal or flip flops unless you’re at the beach, the pool, or live in afghanistan.



  2. X-man Supreme on October 21, 2021 at 10:10 am

    Chacos are DELICIOUS. Does Taco Bell still have those?



  3. KnownUniverse on October 21, 2021 at 10:10 am

    85 dislikes=boat shoes

    You can pry my pistachio green Crocs out of my cold dead hands. They’re low-key 🔥



  5. JAN PORINCHAK on October 21, 2021 at 10:16 am

    OMG, I totally agree about CROCS. Just horrid.



  6. Steve Stalock on October 21, 2021 at 10:18 am

    You knocked this list out of the park. All six! Let’s hope that 70’s disco platform shoes never become trendy again.



  7. Randy van Vliet on October 21, 2021 at 10:18 am

    Here in CA, we call Flip flops also Thongs, sometimes even Go-heads. At least we did back in the 1960’s and 70’s. Nowadays, thongs are female underwear…. go figure.

    The disillusioned chick prudently carry because sparrow unfortunately last about a fragile dock. unarmed, learned boot

    Birkenstocks are comfy af & I have to say I don’t think I’d ever stop wearing them. I live in Kenya & I can say it’s common to see people wearing them or imitations of them here.



  10. Randy van Vliet on October 21, 2021 at 10:19 am

    Wing Tips, Penny Loafers, are classic, and always will be, for your 20% wardrobe shoes. My go to casual shoes nowadays, are Keen’s Arroyo II’s or something a little higher support in the ankles. This is for use in Southern California, YMMV. For reasons unknown, I get asked about them a lot. Very comfortable, form follows function.



  11. Ja Rhule on October 21, 2021 at 10:20 am

    But only my left foot is crusty, the right one could pass for a foot model. 🤷🏾‍♂️



  12. AKA trax on October 21, 2021 at 10:21 am

    Now i get rid of my crocs



  13. Gene Sultry on October 21, 2021 at 10:21 am

    Woman are obsessed with hair, makeup and footwear. I get it but some people wear certain footwear due to health/comfort reasons. Courtney is clearly too young and beautiful and cultured to have experienced this (sarcasm) of course. It’s all about style when you’re young and functionality when you age… lol
    I wear “ Birks “ with a suit and no one every notices…ha



  14. Lt RedNose on October 21, 2021 at 10:22 am

    German man here.
    Solid advice, if you’d try to say a man here to not wear his Birkenstock’s, he would laugh at you! We would honestly think that you broke out from a closed psychiatry and should be brought bake there!
    These shoes, originating here in Germany aren’t just a trend that comes and goes! NO there Part of culture, a way of living for some to speak!



  15. TheNerd Abides on October 21, 2021 at 10:23 am

    How do you feel about penny loafers? I never wear Sandals because I feel like they’re hazardous.



  16. RPD75 on October 21, 2021 at 10:24 am

    Australian here. In Northern parts of our country we wear thongs for any occasion lol



  17. Yahya78 on October 21, 2021 at 10:25 am

    I don’t like squire toe shoes my self,but the shoes you showed were kinda feminent



  18. ECO473 on October 21, 2021 at 10:25 am

    NO! I will not base my wardrobe choices on the opinion of a bunch of man-hating thug chasers who would never give me the time of day anyway!!!STFU!!!



  19. Charles Packwood92 on October 21, 2021 at 10:27 am

    Haha I haven’t worn any of these kind of shoes. I stopped wearing any sort of sandals when I was 10



  20. Robin Hoodie Radio on October 21, 2021 at 10:29 am

    Agree on the crocs. V ugly and should not make a comeback IMO. To each hid own I guess…



  21. Frank Hubbard IV on October 21, 2021 at 10:30 am

    Basically just no beach shoes.



  22. HEXagonal DOMINO ShrimpsOnly1 🦐 on October 21, 2021 at 10:30 am

    Thanks for telling me I can wear whatever I want cause I was under the assumption I had to listen to you. Thanks Court!



  23. Jason Donnelly on October 21, 2021 at 10:32 am

    Chacos are fantastic especially the tan line



  24. Tan on October 21, 2021 at 10:32 am

    Dude I just bought these damn it



  25. Akeem on October 21, 2021 at 10:33 am

    Birkenstocks are not a trend. I’m 32yrs old & been wearing them since birth, they’re comfortable & lasts over 5 yrs with little to no care



  26. T Konclown on October 21, 2021 at 10:34 am

    Crocs are the ugliest things ever. I’m proud to say I’ve never owned a pair.



  27. Leonardo Cozza on October 21, 2021 at 10:35 am

    any chance you will make a video all about sandals for men? Of course it you think there are some at least OK 🙂 Cheers from Italy



  28. The Foam Boys on October 21, 2021 at 10:36 am

    Cmon not the crocs



  29. Juan Castellanos on October 21, 2021 at 10:37 am

    I think your behind lady,i haven’t seen anyone wear these for years ,old ladies do



  30. Alexis Rodriguez on October 21, 2021 at 10:40 am

    Thank you, finally someone that agrees with all of these ugly shoes



  31. Timothy Bare on October 21, 2021 at 10:41 am

    For guys who are not afraid to get pedicures, what styles of sandals would you not cringe at?



  32. Frankie Green on October 21, 2021 at 10:41 am

    We should all live in judgment, it’s been working so well over the decades.
    I wear whatever I want, I can care less what people think. I hate make-up, and think it stinks, but women still wear it. Not the women I date, but that’s what makes the world great, people of different cultures, and different tastes.



  33. jake marlow on October 21, 2021 at 10:45 am

    Boat shoes have not been cool since 1983.



  34. Kyle Parkinson on October 21, 2021 at 10:46 am

    Seriously recommending white sneakers as a replacement for boat shoes? White sneakers will look like hell in 2 weeks.



  35. jake marlow on October 21, 2021 at 10:47 am

    By the way, a young lady with a short skirt and Ugg boots is fuggin hot! Especially if she has long, tanned and toned legs. Yummy!



  36. Naruto735 on October 21, 2021 at 10:49 am

    lol so basically any open toed sandal type shoes and crocs 🤣



  37. Aunur Rifki on October 21, 2021 at 10:50 am

    never buy white sneakers or white flip-flop….. I saw my room mate was his white shoes & flip flop slave….. Always wash or wipe them in every event he want to wear…. always avoid splashes and puddles… I’m tired of just looking at it…. Once more, sandals or flip flop is really versatile, especially in tropical weather, You don’t have to worry about the rain and save your shoes….



  38. X-man Supreme on October 21, 2021 at 10:52 am

    OMG boat shoes just scream DOUCHE



  39. Teddy Lyons on October 21, 2021 at 10:53 am

    Crocs are 50 bucks



  40. Andrew Felcey on October 21, 2021 at 10:54 am

    No man gives a Fook what you think.



  41. Pierce Thirlen on October 21, 2021 at 10:55 am

    I despise flip flops on men and women and especially hate the sound they make. I prefer to walk smoothly and quietly. Some people (BOTH men and women) are clodhoppers and make way too much noise, especially tromping up stairways. Let your shoe contact the stair and THEN push upward. Some people just slam their foot into the stair with every step in a most ungraceful and noisy manner.



  42. Ja Rhule on October 21, 2021 at 10:56 am

    Most people aren’t trying to be the paramount of fashion all day, everyday. Running errands, grocery shopping, walmart/target… I’m wearing my crocs.



  43. Steven Smith on October 21, 2021 at 10:57 am

    Courtney…I love you. I really appreciate your recommendations and sheer honesty. You are totally right. By the way, your facial expressions are hilarious!



  44. edge1000 on October 21, 2021 at 10:57 am

    I would never wear those ,6 types of shoes.. maybe Crocs if I’m taking out the garbage or checking the mail but besides that nope.



  45. Manuel Sanchez on October 21, 2021 at 10:57 am

    I willing to bet if Brad Pitt approached you wearing any of these and asked you for your number…..you wouldn’t care if he’s wearing crocs or chacos!!! 🤣🤣



  46. My Road Tours on October 21, 2021 at 10:58 am

    No crocs here….i have some saddles for the beach and that is it.



  47. brimstone brimstone on October 21, 2021 at 10:58 am

    I agree with you, stick to the classics and try to avoid the trends. Also, going with a trend just says you’re a follower. I think Crocks and Birkenstocks are the worst. I agree with you on the dress shoes as well. As far as open toed, some of it does depend on what part of the country your in, I’m in California and open toed shoes are very popular. I grew up in New York and open toed shoes were definitely not the norm. I think if you’re going to wear open toed shoes you have to use good judgment in your selection and also when to wear them.



  48. jake marlow on October 21, 2021 at 11:01 am

    Flip-flops ("thongs") have been a staple in coastal Southern California since the ’70s. But only quality thongs – not those lame-ass rubber cheapos you buy at the drug store for $10.



  49. Russell Howard on October 21, 2021 at 11:02 am

    The two-strap Birkenstocks are ugly & unbalanced looking; however, the three-strap Birks are traditional sandals, balanced looking, & not unattractive.



  50. ivan ebi jay on October 21, 2021 at 11:03 am

    just came to check if Jordans were mentioned 😅 not that I would’ve listened had it been the case
