    Lately, most of the guys at my gym are wearing black socks.

    Is this a new trend?

    I only own black socks, but at the gym I wear peds, so you can't see them anyway. Sneaky!

    Black socks just never look dirty. White socks look dingy after one month unless you're bleaching the hell out of them, and at that rate you have to buy new ones every 6 months.

    I blame it on crossfit. But who cares really. As long as they don't stink it's all that matters. icon_lol.gif

    icon_neutral.gif I bought one pack of them. At that particular store, anyway, the white ones were cotton and the black ones were synthetic. Supposed to be cool and moisture-wicking.

    The first place I noticed them was on Corbin Fisher boys with their legs in the air, wearing those little black socks. WTF? icon_razz.gif

    I wear a multitude of colored socks even when I work out. I like them.

    My dance class requires either bare feet or white cotton socks so... the only black socks I own are dress socks. I've been thinking 'bout picking up some black ankle socks though.

    yourname2000 saidThis doesn't have anything to do with wearing white after Labour Day, does it? icon_confused.gif

    I could never keep up with all the rules. icon_neutral.gif


    It's "no shirts after memorial day."

    black socks have been in for about 6-7 years now but its only been the last couple that the length of the socks have grown. i think its okay for younger guys to pull them up if they want but older guys not so much

    funny how fashion changes though..10-15 years ago socks pulled up like that would have been ridiculed. Younger kids take their cue from NBA and soccer stars monkey see monkey do

    I have black, white, and grey. I don't think anyone cares or notices, though.

    It started with the college boys...now I see more mature members at my gym wearing them. I refuse to give in and continue to just wear my low cut running shoe socks to the gym. I assumed the kids were doing it to use the black to contrast their legs and make their calf muscle appear more prominent.

    Black Socks
    They never get dirty
    The longer you wear them
    The stronger they get

    My favorite socks are grey with skulls and crossbones on them!

    I only wear black socks.

    It's only because my job when I was 16 required black socks. And it wasn't enforced or anything but my boss would add a couple of hours on your pay if he did a random black sock check and you had black socks on. I figured just replace all my whites with blacks and I'd win every time. icon_cool.gif

    Aren't you supposed to change them more often than once a month?
