Most college guys, this includes athletes, mathletes, frat stars, hipsters, and good ole regulars, have this thing where they wear athletic socks with their boat shoes or sandals or any other form of footwear for that matter. That's fine, college is the time to be lazy and get that out of your system, but this "look" shouldn't carry over into your post-graduate life aka the real world.
|DO NOT DO THIS...|
For some reason Charleston, SC seems to be the epicenter for this type of behavior (maybe I think that because I recently spent a summer there) and it needs to be contained before more are infected by this stylistic error. I'm not saying you shouldn't wear socks with your shoes, but if they feature the Nike logo or any logo for that matter you should not be wearing them with your outfit, the white variety especially.
If you absolutely need to wear socks, rethink the decision and don't wear them, and if you're will power against the little demon on your shoulder is lacking, then go get some no show socks that'll give you the sock-in-shoe feel without the look. Journey's is a great place to look for this type of sock in a variety of cuts and colors for your interests, I recommend checking in there before you commit another style sin.
