I thought there were white compression socks as well as the black, but I only see the black crew on the FJ site at this time. At least, those are the two options as far as FootJoy socks goes.
Health, of course, takes precedence over style IMHO. I try and sell the idea of tall socks in golf, but I've not been successful. I wear tall compression socks a few days a week at work and occasionally, I wear the low cut compression for golf. I love the FootJoy Merino wool socks because one of its feature is that it feels like a compression socks.
But I still think Bermuda shorts and tall dark socks looks very dressed.
I have the tall black socks and love them. Very comfy with any of the FJ shoes i wear.. At the moment they're coming in VERY handy while i'm recovering from 2nd degree burn on my feet.. Yeah, the price I pay for being an idiot. Doing better though...
