    OK - I just picked up a pair of blue Hurley Choice sneakers (white rubber toes) that kind of look like Chucks.

    My question is, if I'm wearing these with jeans, do I wear socks?

    If I wear socks with them, what color socks?

    I'm thinking of sporting a Mickey Mouse ringer t-shirt, my Lucky jeans and my Mani 3-button blue blazer with these tomorrow, but can't figure out the sock thing [​IMG]

    Gray or blue. I hate white socks though, too stark even for white shoes.

    Gray socks are an easy default for denim. Argyles work well too, or any random color that doesn't clash too much. No white, no black. I have some orange (Perry Ellis, I think) socks and some very light blue CK socks I wear with denim a lot when the socks can be seen. With my bright red Sambas I sometimes wear some Pantherella less-bright-red argyles. I tried my pair of bright red argyles though and it looked ridiculous.

    Grey, blue, or beige/cream, depending on the sneaker. Always solids for me. The argyle thing is cool, just not my steez.

    there're these heel socks that just peep out of your sneaker, you could try those?
