I wear black socks with my black sneakers, white with the other lighter colored pair, but in both cases crew socks. I don't think it matters that much as long as you don't wear dress socks or argyles with them.

Actually, I think argyles can sometimes be kinda cool with a classic sneaker like Adidas Stan Smith's or Rod Laver's.

I think it depends on the color of the shoe. White with white and dark with dark. I have been known to wear bright colored socks with either as well.

My socks seldom show when I wear athletic shoes.

Generally white, but I am picture an "athletic shoe" to be something like a brightly colored running sneaker or cross trainer. Black socks would be perfectly appropriate for an all dark, or black "athletic shoe."

Black in all shoes.

White socks are outdated fashion.

Go check out the basketball courts at your local park sometime. Almost all the kids wear black socks these days.
