Now I'm sure this topic (however ever cheesy or moot as it may seem) has probably been run through the ringer here on TW but I couldn't find anything and its a something that all players (men, women, adults, juniors, low level, and high level) can associate with... Its something that everyone deals with and has to address whether in terms of function, style, or personal preference. It can have as much of an affect on your game as it does your own sense of personality and with out a doubt you just can do w/out them.... I'm talking about socks ofcourse. This is probably more food for thought on the mens side than it is the womens (or is it) but whats the deal/preference on wearing the traditional tube sock that goes up to your calf vs the ankle or low cut socks that hit below or right above your ankle bone??? Even in the pro ranks theres seems to be the general consensus... but with guys like mardy fish (and in his last year on tour agassi) rock the ankle (or sometimes called golfers) socks v's the federers who wear the tube socks pulled up to the their calf... then you have guys like rafa who does the best of both worlds and pulls his tube socks down to his ankles.... Is it a style thing? Is there a purpose? Whats your preference and why?
