Yeah, that's what all the 50-something chronically unemployed guys who live off their wives and go round all day in their sandals and calf height black socks tell themselves.

Hate to break it to you, but agonizing over what color socks to wear to the gym is inherently dorky.

Then don't do crappy squats, try to lift more than you should, throw weights on the floor, grunt loudly, hog equipment, or pose in the mirror.

I say wear either color and be yourself. Just be careful as you walk out to your car in the dark parking lot.

I feel for any person whose skin color is the same as white socks.

Dude, I’m in my 30’s, gay, and employed. Sorry to disappoint you.

Btw, black socks and sandals/slides are really hot on younger guys!

Thanks.
too much black. I'd keep the black shorts, mix it up with a fluorescent tee and good white socks from a sports store. I prefer white gym socks because you can easily tell when it's time to wash them.

I too believe it helps to feel good in your attire, even at the gym.

Ditto. I only wear no shows or very short socks.

Breaking...Death of white gym socks imminent. Stay tuned as this story develops.

Seriously? For one thing, they're gym socks, not fashion socks. For another, yeah...white really clashes with black and gray.

Buy the most comfortable socks for your workouts. Forget what they look like.

Damn. I should have saved the rep I just gave you for this post.
