Why is the word ‘sandals’ not good enough for men?
At The Huffington Post today:
President Obama was out and about on Friday night, stopping by DC’s International Spy Museum with Michelle and Sasha. He was the most dressed-down we’ve seen him this summer, wearing a short-sleeved, white button-down shirt, jeans and mandals a.k.a. man sandals. (emphasis mine)
Urban Dictionary has two meanings:
(noun)-man sandal-a men’s summer shoe, that consists of black or brown leather that covers more than 50% of the foot, buckles and a thick sole
Sandals, particularly of the leather strappy european nature, worn by russian, gay, or fashionably misled men. (emphasis mine)
NYDailyNews.com has this article:
Really? Seriously menfolks: man-purse, mandals, what next? Would you guys wear red-stilletos and call it milletos..???
Seems to me that men are more ‘diva’ than women. On second thoughts, maybe they will now want to be called ‘miva’ instead…he, he, he!!
