but oh how I love being sockless

Do you wear women's shoes? If so: I'm fond of my new Timberland Pacific Crests, but I can't find them on line anymore; LL Bean has a version of them, called the "Adventure Cross Straps." (Washing your feet with plain ol' soap in the morning and evening should take care of the smell, by the way.)

puma mostros are stylish, very comfortable, and come in mesh.

Okabashi. I've worn nothing else, except for work, for years. I may be moving to a much colder clime than South Carolina's within a couple years, and my poor feet will have a huge adjustment.

I loved wearing my Vans slip ons sockless through out summers, but then I became paranoid about my feet after watching How I Won the War.

Stan Smiths are always a fave (and not that clamshell toe crap either), but the leather might get a bit hot sockless.
Nike Cortez are good too. And they come in lots of colors!

If you are feeling cheap, Target has some awesome knock off cheap nike free run chucks (the cute laceless kind) and regular converse for around 10$. I think these could be worn by men or women, but I suppose its your call. I like these because once they get beyond cleaning stinky, I don't feel guilty throwing them out. As an added bonus, I actually find them more comfy than regular cons.

I've never worn Keds, but they ought to give you that Chucks style light canvas feel, and in a low top, for less ankle sweatiness.
I just bought two pair of new shoes; the ones that would qualify for sockless wearing are also asics the box calls them Gel Enduro. Lots of mesh, very light.

As I write this I am about 120 miles NW of you and wearing an old pair of without socks. Other, cheaper brands work as well, although I wear mine into the ground.
