Black socks with MCCUU?
I recently graduated MCRD PI and all my coyote brown socks are thrashed. I have a full pack of black socks for playing soccer and stuff and was wondering if those were authorized for wear with the MCCUU? I'm going to MCT tomorrow was wondering if I would need to get more brown socks when I got there

I'd get the brown socks as soon as possible. The Master Sergeant here at my school blasts people for wearing black socks.
Save them for the fleet.

I never had brown socks and I haven't been out that long. I was issued black and always wore black. Reminds me of this shi*t bag that always wore white socks. I ended up making him spray paint his white socks black.

Thank you for the answers. I was also wondering if they issue gortex jackets at MCT and if we'll be given more liberty with when we can wear those than at boot camp?

I know this is somewhat of a necropost, but this is a pet peeve of mine as I always try to correct Marines wearing unauthorized socks and get told I'm wrong, so I'll chime in.
From MCO P1020.34G Chapter 3029.3:
"3. Coyote brown cushion sole socks will be standard as issued/sold
through the DoD Supply System and will be worn with the utility uniform and
whenever combat boots are worn. Green cushion and black cushion sole socks may continue to be worn until replacement is required."
I interpret this to mean that since black and green socks were authorized with the old CUU, they were authorized with the MCCUU when one changed to the new uniform until they wore out. The CUU was phased out years ago now, so NO ONE should be wearing black or green socks in cammies. If you were initially issued the MCCUU and never wore the CUU, black & green socks were never authorized for you.
