A few years ago, colored socks were the shit, they became easily accessible and purchasable in almost all the stores, so we all but threw out all our “boring” white socks in favor of some hues. But you’ve probably noticed the prevailing aesthetic has done a complete 180 and now white socks are cool again.
You may think some looks exclusively work with the geeky chic, pulled up tight whites but when you put things side by side, well, it’s not such an easy decision after all. So which do you prefer?
Just make sure they’re actually athletic socks
