Well thank ye, kind Sir. [blushing...seriously]
But I don't think you've ever seen me without nylons.
I'm one of those old fashioned types who just don't feel it's right to go hose-less in a professional environment.
Casual...fine; just not at work.
Flip-flops...funny...haven't worn a pair since I was a kid.
I actually think it's cool that I get to wear grown-up shoes now.
And being only 5'3", heels add a certain stature that I really enjoy.
Though, having said that, I'm not a shoe-hound like most women.
Jackets, though, now that's another story.

Hadn't thought about that... but as I said, one of the things I dread about summer is women who think that they have good legs, and don't, going completely bare-legged.
And FLIP-FLOPS! AAAAAAAAAAGH!!!
And hey, Deb, you've got pretty good legs, if you don't mind my saying so!

You should both try wearing nylons...they feel quite nice (the good quality ones anyhow) ... LOL
As for wearing shoes without nylons, it really depends on the shoes. Most women's summer shoes breathe. They're open-toed, or more like high-heeled sandals. They're meant to be worn without nylons. Air flows over and around the foot and it's much cooler.
One can wear pumps without nylons if the shoe material is a natural fibre...leather, for example...something that breathes (i.e. allows moisture to pass through the material and evaporate).
I seriously don't recommend man-made products if one is going hose-less. With normal foot moisture (or more if the reason for going hose-less is that it's a warm day) trapped in the shoe...well...I won't go into gory detail. I'm sure you can figure out why it's a bad idea. And, since the man-made fibres tend to trap heat as well, it does get quite uncomfortable.

I guess the sarcasm was missing from the first sentence. It sounded much better in my head.

Hi, Sean... actually I own neither sandals nor nylons, this was a speculative question for the women readers.

You don't wear nylons with your sandles, do you? I'd much rather see a pair of bare legs and feet in nice shoes than have them clad in nylons all the time. Stockings have their place, but it's usually for special occasions.
