    That’s a very popular style (slides w/ socks) for all the preppy n jock teens @ my school

    Its cool

  2. linz says:

    i think it looks pretty good.
    Love the sock and sandals
    cobi looks like shit though!

  3. Sportswear says:

    David Beckham is a style icon.He cannot be allowed to appear in public looking like that! Too
    long to be shorts, too short to be trousers.

    For better or worse, this is a very common, American, casual look that guys of all shapes and sizes and backgrounds have been known to sport. 

    In fact, I don’t know a single guy in American who couldn’t recreate this with stuff from their closet.

    FTW.

    LMAO! This Made Me Laugh.
    One Thing That Fails To Amuse Me Is How Can One Man Get it So Right And Then So Wrong In THe Space Of 1 Week?

    Without The Tatoo’s He Would Be Nothing.
    (Well In ths Picture Anyway)

  8. Wtf? says:

    Omg…he look looking rather kevin federline-esque….

    LOOSE THE LOOK!

  9. sarabee says:

    Who let mad grandad out?

  10. brandy says:

    OMG, please stop spamming this site with Frank and John love. It is TOO much. A thousand picture links? Poetry? Jeez…. okay on a little bit here and there but all these posts about Fat Lamps and Piss Terry are loooooong and ridiculous and too frequent! I can’t handle it anymore. This is a DB page. You wanna spam people with them – they have posts: e.g. Aviator Lamps/Shiny Scarf Lamps, Rambo Terry etc…. post them there please!

  11. carly says:

    Elise, you’re killing me! ihihih
    I enjoyed the pictures but also your names for them “FrankJesus”  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

    And it’s good to have several favourite boys, as my interests tend to float from time to time, I mean, from boy to boy haha!

  12. Elise says:

    <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" />

    er, yeah, so I might have forgotten the meaning of the word ‘couple’!  After posting it I went back to check the links, and even thought to myself ‘Good Lord, I went mental with the links!‘  But anyway, I’m sure they’ll be appreciated by some and ignored/hated by others, like much of what we find on this page.  I’m glad there’s room for all tastes!  And I don’t think David would mind too much.  And yes, MrsXabi, I have often thought how lovely it would be to have a ‘lust for Lamps’ page, but I’d have to make it a ‘lust for Lamps and JT page’…can’t do without John!!

  13. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Elise I fear you may have a bit too much spare time on your hand’s, but I love you for it <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />
    I am not Frank’s biggest fan, but I can appriciate yummy-ness and picture’s 6, 11 and (holy hell) 12 almost got me back to my loving Lamp’s days!

    And SuzyQ it may be off topic, but you cannot complain when there isn’t a JustLustAfterLamp’s section for Elise to hang around in <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  14. SuzyQ says:

    er, holy off topic pic spam! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" /> WTF does Frank Lampard have to do with David’s sandals???  Though actually, I’m quite sure he wears them too!  lol
    i think the look is shite, but alot of athletes and footie players wear this kind of thing after training.. so it’s gross, but a reality unfortuantely.

  15. Elise says:

    TFO, thanks for your support! And as a little thank you, and as a countermeasure to your recent report of hotness radar malfunction, I’ve written you a poem (with props to Will, of course):

    Let us not to the celebration of Frank’s hotness admit impediments.
    Love is not love which alters when it bad fashion choice finds or bends with the remover to remove (the bad hat).
    Oh no.  It is an ever-lusting mark which looks on ass-annihilating jeans and is never shaken.
    It is the star to every wandering gaze at the package, whose worth’s unknown, although its size be measured (!).
    Love’s not time’s fool, though lovely cheeks (!) and powerful thighs within the limits of the baller’s career compass come.
    Love alters not with his brief moments on the pitch, but bears it out (over hours on the computer) even to the edge of sleepless delirium.
    If this be error and upon me proved, then I never fantasised and no Frank fan ever loved.

    And just in case poetry doesn’t do it for you, I’m attaching a couple of photographic countermeasures as well:

    So you’ve already seen that last one- it bears repeating, don’t you think?!
    <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

    Oh f**k me, my passcode below is ‘start69’!!  I kid you not.

  16. Jacey says:

    OK, as the wife of a baseball coach, I find that look completely hot (sadly) because I’m so used to it. The man burns whether he’s wearing sack cloth and ashes or K-Fed gear.

  17. The Fourth Official says:

    Good luck on Sunday, Elise!  I will root for Chelsea, as my team for some strange reason is not in contention.  LOL!

  18. Elise says:

    Carly, you’re welcome!  I confess to spending embarassing amounts of time over the last few days staring at those pics, especially John in the first one…okay John in the second one, too!  Between these two pics and those of him at Rambo the other night, I’m having to physically restrain myself from licking my computer screen!! (I seem to go in stages where one or the other of my boys gets more of my focus.  Right now it’s John. In a big, big way!!) It’s funny- since Frank’s thigh injuries he’s been covering his legs- and wearing those damn compression shorts- and John, who is usually either covered up completely or wearing the long shorts seems to be showing more leg.  I’m all for him taking up the torch!
    TFO- I’m shaking in my f**cking boots (and they’re fabulous boots, too, I might add) about the Carling Cup.  I just read that Capello is planning to be there specifically to see John and Frank (and Ledley King, but who cares) in action.  Oh the pressure!  And on them as well!  LOL

  19. Let him do what he wants, it doesnt look that bad.

  20. trainee wag says:

    who wears socks with sandals.. thats just.. rong.. at so many level

  21. carly says:

    Gina, Frank was wearing different coloured socks in one of those pictures. Can you spot that?

    (I’m kidding!!!  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" /> )
    But feel free to check them again!

  22. Malin says:

    Well, the sandals and socks didn’t bother me that much, it’s what every baller wears when they are relaxing… Not that it looks good but I guess I’m used to it. But the rest of the look. Jeez. He really does look like Kevin Federline…

  23. Shelby says:

    Gawd, why send us a hot British guy if he’s just going to dress like one of the many, many crummy guys we have to choose from anyway?

    I just hope he was trying to “blend in” so he could go about unrecognized.

    I hope he doesn’t get fat, too.  If so, then just hand him his citizenship card.

    Kickette, can you please post some hot Cristiano pictures to make up for this?

  24. Gina says:

    Dammit Tammy, I didn’t notice Gerrard in the background, so I will be forced to look at them all again much more closely!

    If anybody else can think of another excuse I might use for another run-through instead of working, let me know <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" />

  25. tammyv says:

    thanks for the Lamps early in the monring… it makes the day better and brighter and the pic of Stevie G looking all goofey in one ofthe background added that little extra pinch

  26. Elise says:

    Yes, indeed I think it would, TFO!  That’s brilliant news!  It’s funny, though, that I was able to so easily believe it was real! Oh, Frankie.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" />

    brandy, I can appreciate your point of view (though not so much your comment on my boys).  I know I’m a bit OTT sometimes…okay, most of the time, but oh well… Perhaps you can consider just sliding that mouse right on down past my posts from now on.  Just don’t trouble yourself with them at all.  But by the way, I am totally open to any declarations, excessive as they might be, to yours (or anyone else’s) love/lust objects.  It’s part of the fun of this site, whether I can personally feel the love or not.
    Peace.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

  27. The Fourth Official says:

    Elise, I take my hat off to you! I adore your sonnet to Frank’s hotness!  And I totally appreciate your passion.  (Though I’m not quite there with the Lampard Love yet.) 

    Would it set your heart at ease somewhat to know that the “hat” picture was photoshopped?  I have it on good authority.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  28. Ashley M says:

    I just had a mental twitch of repulsion that I thought I would never associate with Becks.

  29. tammyv says:

    NO…um… NO….yeah, umm… NO.  Cobi is looking good in the background though.

  30. Rusty says:

    I used to have a pair of those, and I never wore them with socks. I see them as sandals, and I never wear sandals with socks.

    yuck.

  31. The Fourth Official says:

    HELL NO!!!!!!!  excaim  excaim  excaim

    Ugly shorts?  Ugly t-shirt? Ugly socks?  Ugly sandals???

    The only thing that tells us that it’s David is the tatoos.

  32. c9 says:

    Come on ladies, he’s in Hawai’i, he’s on his way to training for the day, it’s hot and beautiful in Hawai’i. Really the locals don’t care if he’s looking casual, the only thing they care about is watching him play!

    I agree with AJ, as an ahtlete that look is very normal. It’s pre-season, in Hawai’i, let him relax and enjoy the downplay for now <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  33. carly says:

    Elise <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

    Thanks <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  34. carly says:

    My God, David has turned into one of those american frat-boys with baggy clothes (No offense anyone!!)

    Even I am disappointed…when usually I can’t care less.

  35. xlxcx says:

    To be fair, I’m a student athlete and I constantly commit this fashion faux pas. For good reason though kickettes! Those adidas flip flops if worn without socks can cause nasty blisters and dare I say it—athletes foot. Sometimes one must break the rules of common fashion decency in order to prevent themselves from becoming a casualty of poorly lined and non practical sports wear

  36. Elise says:

    TFO- I’m pretty sure Grant was just resting them the other night to insure that they were fit and ready for the Carling Cup final.  I get that he wouldn’t want to risk them before that.  No matter what he may or may not say about it, this Cup has got to be pretty important to Grant as it’s the first silverware available to him and it would really be a nice raspberry to the doubters.  There is always the chance, too, though that’s he’s just afraid they aren’t fully fit.  I would imagine that’s more of a concern with John, though, since he usually wants to come back perhaps sooner than he should.  I guess we’ll see.  (Those were my logical thoughts on the matter.  My ‘real’ reaction is expletive laden and really not suitable for posting here!!  LOL)  The upside is that the situation gave us this wonderful pic of the boys sitting on the bench together in Athens, looking completely delicious (especially John)!

    http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj287/elisesfa…

    And this one is from the warmup.  *I’m* certainly warmed up!    <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

    http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj287/elisesfa…

  37. MrsJamieRedknapp says:

    Noooooooo !!!! Becks is a fashion guru, he cannot be allowed to appear in public looking like that!  The white socks and flip flops are bad enough, but WTF is he wearing?  Too long to be shorts, too short to be trousers, what are they troushorts or shortrous. I dunno.  But me no likey.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/shuteye.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="shut eye" style="border:0;" />

  38. Meriam says:

    Oh dear, has he been spending too much time with Snoop Dogg?!?!

    Beckham should go back to Spain or return to England while he still has some sense of style left…

  39. Robin says:

    Oh good lord people – those aren’t sandals they’re addidas slippers. They’re definitely meant to be worn with socks as anyone who grew up playing soccer in the US knows.

  40. AJ says:

    Those kind of sandals are meant to be worn with socks. The soles of them are bumpy and horribly uncomfortable on the bare foot. Not saying it looks great (actually I don’t mind it but I’m used to it, athletes have been wearing them for years) but technically, its not wrong or unusual. Love your site BTW!

  41. Elise says:

    Excuse me.  Does anyone know what has happened to David’s hotness.  It seems to have completely vanished in this pic.  WTF was he thinking?!  I mean, come on.  This is as bad, perhaps even worse than, Frank’s aviator look! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" />  At least I’m laughing about *that*.  I had the same reaction to this pic as Ashley M.- repulsion.  I don’t worship at the Beckham shrine (I’m on my knees at the Terry/Lampard Shrine), but this is not what I usually expect from pics of David.

  42. The Fourth Official says:

    The only nice thing I can say is at least his whites are *really* white.  Wonder what detergent Victoria uses?

    Elise, what’s going on with your boys and the Carling Cup?  They won’t be starting?

  43. Nic says:

    2 things: A) he does look rather ghetto—almost (gag) K-Fed-esque but with more class. And sex appeal. B) sadly, socks with the Adidas slides is a big trend over here on the crappy side of the pond. eew. he just better not fall into any more of our fashion disasters

  44. paris says:

    David Beckham can do no wrong in my eyes.

  45. maga says:

    dear Lord. those socks and sandals? Please, it’s common to wear somthing like this in Poland but even there it becomes passe LOL

  46. The Fourth Official says:

    Gina, you’re learning – thank you. Appreciate the effort.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" /> 

    I don’t think it’s for “protection”, because haven’t we seen lots of shots of Becks in shoes/no socks or no shoes/no socks?

    That shot reminds me of every middle aged married schmuck wandering around Home Depot, who has just given the f*ck up and can’t be bothered anymore because his wife has gained 60 pounds and his job sucks and his kids hate him, and the only pleasures he has left in life are his porno stash, and a few beers with the guys, sitting around the above-ground pool out back behind his double wide trailer.  That’s how sad that picture is.

  47. Gina says:

    Does the socks/sandals thing have something to do with footballers needing to protect their feet?

    I remember some pix of Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United diving into a pool wearing white socks. (as opposed to C-Ron from ManU, that’s another guy playing for some American junior college) <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/cheese.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="cheese" style="border:0;" />

    Or are these guys just too clueless to know that white socks go with sneakers and nothing else?

  48. Johnna says:

    Ahhahahaha I love it that the Galaxy already suck this year as much as they did last year. *snorts*

  49. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Oh Kickette I do so love you, but WHY would you ever share this picture with us??? Do you realise how many heart’s you have just broken by revealing that Beck’s isn’t infact perfect!!
    If you ever find another picture like this (please God I hope you don’t) then could you just pop it through the shredder.  Then just tell us you found a bad picture but rather than show us it just re-show his Armani ad.

    I’m begging you!!!!! Please, this picture has made me sad <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/shuteye.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="shut eye" style="border:0;" />

  50. linz says:

    he does look pretty ghettofied…those shorts are gi-normous on him…but i don’t really mind the sandals and socks, i wear them too, around my house that is.

  51. brandy says:

    Um, why is David dressed like he is “straight outta Compton” or like he is down with the LBC?! Makes him look like he has a major beer gut there. I stood by him when he had that flannel and trucker hat look going – could totally pull it off – but this? I can’t do it. He has finally found a look that doesn’t work for him!

  52. Kaya says:

    It’s not his fault. They put something in the LA water. Like babies’ blood from all the generations they stole from where their water comes from <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />
    It’s been 10 years since I lived down there, but this look was really big with asian-american guys when I was in college. San Francisco is too chilly most of the time to support this look, so I have no real way to verify if it’s really just down to the drinking water….

  53. brandy says:

    Ugh – I think Coby looks like a beastly woman! More specifically like one of those tennis sisters!

  54. Kaya says:

    tammyv,
    I do realize where they are, but baby’s blood has a half life of 10 days.

  55. Sara says:

    Gawd..he looks like Kevin Federline!  confused

  56. tammyv says:

    Kaya,  He and the team are in Hawaii for a preseason tourny.  Wow…  it is just bad from head to toe

    I am sticking with my stance, Cobi looks fatnastic behind him!
