No but I told them that tennis used to be a gentlemen's sport and now they let any ruffian play it. Then I hobbled over using my racket as a cane and shook my fist at them with displeasure. I can assure you that those hooligans will think twice about playing tennis in black socks in the future.How dare they!!
Did you chase them off your lawn?
Atta boy. That'll teach those ne'er-do-wells. Back to the skate park for you, you punks!!!No but I told them that tennis used to be a gentlemen's sport and now they let any ruffian play it.

I would expand this and say that I'd only wear black socks with dark shoes and with black shorts, so the lower half of me matches. I still remember Agassi back in '94; he wore black socks with Nike shoes that were white all the way around the bottom and black on top. From a distance, with the black on the tops of the shoes blending into the socks and the white lower part of the shoes, he looked like he was wearing white pumps. Maybe someone can find a photo of that combination...I only wear black socks when I wear predominantly black shoes. Black socks with any other color shoes just doesn't work for me... LOL
You need some freedom bro! Too many rules and restrictions. Just wear whatever color combo, be an artist, not a conformist!My opinion only:
If you're sporting black socks, the shoe should have some black in it, too. If it's all black or even mostly black, you'd better be wearing black socks (think Stan Wawrinka and his white sock/black shoe faux pas). Black shorts help complete the look, but if there's enough black in the shoe, any color would be okay. Black attire will slim whatever body part it's on. Slim ankles look much nicer than fat ones. Long live the black socks!
Right, when you are wearing those shoes, the socks are not your biggest concern ;-). I saw these shoes were recommended (and they probably are great), but then when I looked at the shoes, I was like never mind. Someone described it as they would go well with an astronaut suit, due to the silver bands in there.I'd wear my socks - any color would do - OVER these hideous things, personally.
