    I was excited to show you all my new "cool" shoes last week. Yeah, back when I had long pants on. Now that I have shorts on something doesn't look quite right. God forbid, what will people think when I wear them with cargo shorts. Do I need black anklet socks to make my black shoes look hip? Or, is the real answer more like rockers don't wear shorts Nancy boy, you wear jeans even if it's 101 outside so who cares what color your socks are. :D :lol:

    If you walk like that, they won't last long.

    I think black socks look weird. Stick with what you got. I wear cargo shorts, socks, and Birkenstocks all the time, and I'm the coolest guy there is. ;)

    I'm anti-fashion too, but shorts look weird on most grown-up men, IMO.
    They look even weirder with socks, and any type of shoe, except sandals.
    Wow, now I'm a fashion consultant!:rolleyes::lol:

    The one I never understood was socks with sandals.

    Whatever you wanna do is up to you, but if you're going to have a brand on your socks (in your case New Balance), it should match the brand of your sneakers (Adidas).

    Hard to make any shoe look good in shorts. If you insist, ankle socks or barefoot is way to go. Birkenstocks look best IMO. More random internet fashion unsolicited advice
