When did it become okay to wear black socks with tennis shoes and shorts?
When did it become bad to wear white socks that showed on your ankles with tennis shoes and shorts?
I remember being in junior high and high school and simply knowing that you could not be caught wearing black socks - or socks of any color - with tennis shoes. Yet, these days, you almost never see anyone wearing white socks.
From sporting events to the average person on the street (with or without sandals - but that's a different issue) it seems that dark socks with sneakers is now the way to go.
