ok, eating rice in Czechia is like eating knedliky in China (which would proably be like stones). i hope it was not a la carte, so you had no choice.

about sandals: there is one even more trashy thing than wearing them with socks - sandals with special place for thumb

Wearing sandals in formal situation isn't classy, of course, but sandals without socks are still more socially acceptable than sandals with socks.

An old joke:

In real life, electronic toll collection was first introduced in Bergen, Norway in 1986, and well into the 21th century many countries still struggle to implement it.

I don't see why adult men would want to wear sandals...

Flip-flops on the beach on in the garden, I can understand. But sandals in an everyday situation like work or shopping? It seems unusual do to that, you don't see many men wearing them in the Netherlands, except for the type that wears them with socks

In summer I wear flip flops almost always when not going to work and Tewa sandals for rough terrain. I wear shoes just on important occasions and casual sneakers to/from work.
I even drive barefoot if I'm on longer motorway journeys (my car has big aluminium pedals with automatic transmission).

Office workers in the Netherlands usually don't dress formal (suit, tie) unless they have a higher managerial position. But men wearing shorts is usually not appreciated in the office.

Shorts are not appreciated here too however they could be tolerated in some companies for lower position workers. In our firm they are tolerated, but not for all and not always.

I wear sandals (without socks of course :-D) in my leisure time. I do not have to spend my precious socks and it is very pleasant to go out without socks.

Something else is at work. I have to be dressed semi-formal (no a suit, but jeans/trousers with shirt without tie). Shorts with shirt is tolerated for lower position workers during Fridays.

One of my workplaces had a bunch of new hires, there is a notably "dress down" movement out there (less cotton pants, more sport-casual attire).

To be honest, in the Netherlands they would be quite unusable most of the time. There´s nothing as comfortable as quality outdoor shoes.

Clearly, southern Europe has something with sandals. But I don't blame them. It's hot in there.

One more thing. I noticed that people that don´t wear socks or even walk barefoot have terrible feet. They look completely destroyed, hard skinned, and worn out. I could not stand that.

I don't get why flip-flops are sometimes associated only with the beach. I walk with these in Ljubljana all summer:

They are not really used in central and northern Europe
(not like in the South and East, former Yugoslavia included)
