But there's a few rules, fellas, about the black sock:
- They HAVE to be low cut (or no show). Not even a shorter crew works. Trust me here.
- Make sure they have some blend of polyester, nylon, spandex. Cotton DOES NOT WICK SWEAT.
- They should have some kind of microbial absorbing action- do I need to remind you that socks smell terrible after a good work out?
So remember, if you're not going to wear the low cut white running sock, black is just as good, if not more trendy! And the reality is, the black sock looks better with a grey athletic shoe, rather than stark white. Show it off, boys!
