The only time I ever saw someone check socks was in USMC boot camp. A recruit had a medical chit to wear white cotton socks, but had to wear green wool socks over them.

My Sgt commented on mine in my first, but it was more like an FYI.
They were Dark Purple thick Cotton. He saw me with my boots off once. For PT though, it was white sox always.
