    Yeah, maybe, if done right it can look cool(like this pic I found).


    But small socks and shoes. Maybe, if it's done the same opposite on fingers, so you recreate symmetry there. Or on all four limbs, for super symmetry or non symmetry, or something.

    Just chaos is nice too.

    nope, but since it seems other people do care, I buy all black socks. I share them with my 14 year old son. I just throw away the white ones that happen to make their way home.

    Not sure why, but yeah, I do. I think it's more textural than wanting them to look alike, though. If they're different heights, thicknesses, or whatever then it just feels weird and distracting. I know this sounds OCDish and it may be.

    My daughter, on the other hand, is allergic to matching. She has a style I like to call "ragamuffin chic," a major component of which is mismatched knee-high socks.

    I only keep socks a couple months and then they are thrown away.



    They are the champion elite low cut socks. The best socks ever.

    And of course they match! Their trim is different colors for your matching ease.

    Around the house, I intentionally wear odd colored socks. It pleases me.

    I greatly prefer my socks to match if they are distinctly patterned (even if I'm wearing boots or otherwise no one can see them) but it's so hard to keep track of generic white athletic socks I often wear mismatched athletic socks. No one seems to notice and the priority is to keep my feet insulated and my shoes protected from sweat. Yuck.

    Nah, never have, prolly never will. I once had a friend back in high school accidentally glimpse my GLARINGLY mismatched socks (one green, one purple). He loudly proclaimed it and all my friends then proceeded to chase me all over the school field then restrain me so they could get a good laugh out of them. It's only gone downhill from there.

    Sometimes, when I'm at a meeting at work, I'll get self-conscious for a minute or two because I'm sure that my colleagues seated across from me can see the socks but the feeling quickly passes. It's kinda fun actually having the oddest combinations under a conservative pin-striped suit.
