Sock color and school req.

Posted

My nursing school requires white shoes (ugh). Do white socks work with white shoes? All I have is a set of navy and dark grey socks.

Just go to Walmart and buy some white socks!!!!!!! And get your white work shoes.

If that's what your school wants, don't make waves for lousy shoes & socks. Otherwise they'll look at you as a troublemaker and that's the LAST thing you want to happen while in school.

Don't rock the boat!

For what this is worth, I agree with you that white shoes can be nerdy but these are work shoes. Comfort and safety are the priority here.

Good luck with school.

What color socks are required for you to wear? Schools can be picky about stuff like that.

Navy or black socks would work in my opinion if you have darker colored uniform pants--blue, burgundy, black, etc. NOT with white pants and white shoes both, though.

There is none.

To OP - I don't know if I'm misunderstanding you or if you misunderstood me ?

My comment about 'rocking the boat' meant to advise you not to give your school admin any ammunition to cause them to hassle you. Like for you to just blend into the wallpaper, fly under the radar, etc.

Two of the easiest nsg school rules to abide by are to be on time and to comply with the dress code.

Sorry if we're miscommunicating. Didn't mean to.

Why would I be giving them ammunition to hassle me? I'm asking about how to match shoe and sock color. This is completely unrelated to my post.

What color are your uniforms?

Navy blue. I just have no idea if black/grey/blue socks work with white shoes (dansko clogs in this case).

I believe blue socks and white socks would look nice, if you want my 2 cents :)

I would play it safe with grey, maybe even navy blue. I think white would clash too much with the uniform and black too much with the shoes.

Sorry - my misunderstanding.

If it's not a matter of the school dress code, i.e., it doesn't specify what color to wear, then a sock that "works" is any sock that absorbs perspiration and keeps your feet comfortable.

I must be missing something. Is this a real question? Nah, can't be. We can't seriously be agonizing --or even concerned-- about socks matching pants or shoes. You know what? Nobody will care. I'd recommend "plain" in white or whatever color your pants uniform is, so as not to stand out, as amoLucia was trying to get you to understand, but otherwise ... phooey, why am I writing this much about this? Honest to god. Go to MallWart and get some damn socks.

I just did white. It works! Thanks, everyone, for your feedback!

Make sure you are allowed to wear clogs. Most schools do not allow clogs.

Buy some white socks. They're cheaper than the white shoes.
