What do y'all think about the story where several female lacrosse team members at Northwestern University wore flip-flop sandals to meet with the President of the U.S.?
I personally think it was inapropriate. IMO, they should have not worn any kind of sandal or any kind of shoe where their toes were showing. I think society has become a little too casual, especially when dressy attire is required. Meeting with the president is a formal event, and thus requires proper clothing. Their skirts were nice, but the shoes were wrong. A closed toe shoe with a heel was the right thing to wear. You're not excused from wearing nice shoes because you're young and in college on a sports team. Being athletic doesn't mean you never have to dress up.
Take a look at Danica Patrick. She races cars and has to wear a firesuit and gets hot and sweaty. But in social situatons, she is always dressed beautifully in a skirt, jeans or nice pants and heels.
Just my opinion!
