When is it acceptable to wear black socks while playing tennis? I put them on the other day with my white tennis shoes to go for a walk outside, and my wife told me they look rediculous. Do you only wear black socks with black shoes? Also does it matter what color your shorts are when you wear black socks? I like black socks, but I don't have much of a fashion sense.

As long as the shoes have a bit of black in them, its perfectly acceptable to wear black socks. Also, I feel the same rules apply for clothing...if theres some black in there, go with black socks. If not, slap on some black wristbands.

Example:
Plain White Shirt
Plain White Shorts
Black Wristbands
Black Socks
White Shoes

Perfectly OK

If you have the black Vapor VI, you better wear black socks, otherwise you look like this guy.

Textbook example for 2 golden rules!

1. your wife is always 100% right
2. if she is not right then you must apply 1st rule

Hope this helps!

Black socks with white shoes makes you look like a butt-munch. And you'll never score with chicks.

I said butt. Uhhhh-huh-huh-huh-ha-ha-ha-huh-huh-heh.
