The weekend's here and the weather's still warm enough to spend the next 2 days in flip-flops and sandals, right guys? WRONG. In a survey of 6,000 women, it turns out most don't want to see our furry feet and trashy toes. Flip-flops? Nope, not unless you're going to the beach, the lake, hanging out by the pool, or sitting on a boat. Sandals? Sorry, still too much toe-action -- unless you're wearing the more rugged, hiker-style sandals that cover the toes. And those Adidas athletic slip-on things many guys wear with socks? They only place you should be wearing them is in a gym shower.

... And women in the survey also want guys to get some freaking pedicures. 78% of women surveyed said men need to take better care of their feet.
