Fisherman Sandals: Chic or Dowdy?

I am so attracted to fisherman sandals. My advancing age makes me think of a self inflicted edict: What looks ironic chic on a younger person can look dowdy on an older person. Trends like dad sneakers, mom jeans, granny dresses, Birkenstocks and socks with sandals–all originally meant to allow comfort and freedom of constraint–is funky cool, on a youthful person, but can look frumpy on a person who actually may need those accommodations. I would like to think fisherman sandals are a classic piece of footwear on any age. What do you think?
