I wear black nike socks that barely come up to my calf. They look good with black shoes.

When I used to play I wore arch Nike socks that at least came above my ankles slightly. I hate no-show socks when they sink down in your shoe, then if you're playing the basically start sliding off your heel in your shoe. A thick sock is better, absorbs more sweat, more cushion, gives the shoe a snugger fit.

I wear black, ankle high socks.

I put on one sock, then put on my neoprene ankle sleeve (black), then the second sock.

I like the extra cushion, snugness, and ankle support.

I use Adidas high socks they are extra thick so I have less blisters when I play with them. When they are all in the wash I have to use my Nike ones and those are thin so I have to go double socks when I use those.

Do you ever wear the power leg sleeves? I see some NBA players wearing them.

Those wouldn't count as socks.

But back on topic I just wear some normal crew/tube socks. I want to get some NBA or Nike ones just because they seem a bit thicker. Anyone care to share some info on if they are or not?

I wear a pair of football (soccer) socks that are a size too small.

Sounds ridiculous, but the tightness gives ankle support without the sweating associated with multiple pairs

Tall black nike socks and I have one pair of low cut NBA socks (they're perfect size, they come up a little bit higher than most shoes and they're comfortable)
