I think I prefer to wear white socks for rubber shoes. However, it also depends on the color of your attire as well

I like white socks with athletic shoes. I have very fair skin and I feel people who do the contrast of black socks against pale skin does not look so great but that is my opinion.

Whats the color of your shoes:

Black athletic shoes=Black socks

White athletic shoes=White socks

That's what I generally see on the Men's track & field facility.

HMMM? No black tall socks with white dress shoes and no tall white socks with black shoes (or sandels for both).
In addition, no white belts with shorts to go along with ^^^^. It's assisted living fashion. haha

It's not really debatable if you care about foot health and hygiene. White, 100% cotton socks.

White socks always.

Black socks look trashy, tacky, and make you look like you are ready for the old folks home.

wow, I knew I was no fashionista going to the gym in old colored tees and mismatched workout pants but didn't know the color of my socks were an issue as well. Prefer socks that don't show over the shoe but if they do they tend to be faded white
