    What color socks do you wear with white sneakers?

    I really like them, be it in canvas for summer or leather for winter, but I'm always somewhat unsatisfied with my choice of socks (usually mid-grey). In summer you can go sockless of course, but in winter...

    Also, what thickness/structure? Do you maybe have specific suggestions?

    Are they visible? If yes, it's absolutely no option for me. Besides, even if they were not visible it would look silly to me in winter.

    just depends
    - invisible or no socks if it's nice out/summer, shorts, etc.
    - gray socks with denim
    - sometimes navy or black if I want high contrast or geek chic look
    - sometimes white for a super fresh, tennis look
    i don't have any colored socks and don't think i'd wear them with white sneakers.

    I like somewhat chunky white or grey cotton or cotton blend in mid calf for my retro canvas sneakers (Jack Parcels or Tretorn natural canvas), or no socks at all. I'm currently looking for some cricket style socks (white with a navy or navy and red band at the top. I wear these with jeans or khakis.

    For sports and the gym, only synthetic white or grey short socks.

    Hm, okay, more or less what I thought. Parker and gdl, what grey exactly are we talking about? And Parker, what thickness/structure for the crispy look? I'd guess something thicker and ribbed, as Lennon wore? (btw, any idea what sneakers he wears here?)

    psg, cricket style socks sounds good. Let me know if you find some.
