THE OWNER OF THE BROOKLYN CIRCUS IS NOT OPPOSED TO ANKLE NUDITY

Hue is noticing a disturbing trend among scalawag youths these days: shoes without socks. Socks have a practical application: absorbing perspiration and inhibiting ungainly odors. An aesthetic one, too, as they cover up embarrassing ankle nudity. Yet some would throw caution to the winds and go sockless for the sake of style.  Bah.

FIT alum Ouigi Theodore, co-owner of the Brooklyn Circus, was recently spotted in Brooklyn without socks.

Shoeless Joe, Sockless Ouigi

Ouigi without socks, in front of the Brooklyn Circus

Ouigi: I’m sockless today.

Hue: Shame on you.

Ouigi: Some shoes are more comfortable without socks. I wear a lot of canvas shoes without socks. Why I didn’t wear them today, there’s no explanation.

Hue: How do you deal with the embarrassing foot odor?

Ouigi: Your feet will stink more in sneakers. These aren’t too bad.

Hue: (Disapproving silence.)

Ouigi: Sometimes I wear quarter socks. You can’t see them but they’re there.

Look ma, no socks!

The feet in question

(Ouigi and his store, the Brooklyn Circus, is featured in the fall issue of Hue. Wearing socks, of course.)

  1. No socks! A travesty! Perhaps we just don’t get enough god weather to really try out a sockless day where I am in the UK and it just looks uncomfy!

    Kudos for having a go!

  2. i would consider going without socks much more seriously if somehow my ankles were striped or naturally covered in an argyle pattern.

    Being named Ouigi means all sock rules are off. Socks can really ruin the silhouette from short bottom to shoe, and shorten the leg drastically. And there are those little socks that one can’t see to solve the odor issue.
