I have seen at least two people recently wearing socks with Shimano spd
sandals. I'm not one to call people out but I have winced. It looks
incredibly tasteless.

I've done it a few times when I had a sore spot from the sandal straps.

With bike shoes, I'll only skip socks for a triathlon. It takes
forever to put them on when your feet are wet.

I've worn SPD sandals both with and without socks, but the socks will
be heavy wool. That's when I'm riding to work on what I know will be a
hot ride home, but it's not warm enough at 5:30am to go without.

Yes, I wear socks for all rides, unless I'm using sandals. And for
utility rides, I wear absolutely normal street clothing.

I rode a double century with a friend who decided to skip the socks
for that ride. He finished, but barely. His feet were in agony.

Socks keep the straps from rubbing your feet. Once I rode about 60
miles with my sandals and no socks. Feet were rubbed raw from the
straps. Never ever again. Socks, socks, socks.

Always. Decision made as a consequence of a training accident when my
new tyres gave way in the wet and I lost a fair chunk of flesh from my
ankle so always fold down to cover that joint preferably with three
layers by using a double fold.
