    Hey, does anyone know why some footballers wear white ankle socks over their normal kit socks. Cristiano Ronaldo and most of the Turkey team seem to do this a lot.

    It's tape to keep their shingaurds from slipping down.

    I wear white ankle socks underneath my actual kit socks in matches for my club team. I actually find it more comfortable than going straight kit sock to shoe. It is probably the same reason as to wearing them on the outside.

    May it give more of a presence in the shoe if that makes sense to you?

    I started wearing ankle socks under my knit socks when i first bought new cleats to prevent blister, and then I just stuck with it

    I reckon it just something that looks good, it goes along with the likes of taped wrists, bandages and sweatbands etc. if you have any more suggestions, have a look at my thread, Football Styles.

    I wear regular socks under my soccer socks because I get blisters...they hurt REALLY bad too...and I can run as fast because of it.

    You SHOULD be wearing a pair of socks under your soccer socks (shin guards should be between the two pairs of socks). Pretty much everyone does that.
