A year or so ago I ran across a website that sold socks that were white on the foot, but black or OD green from there up. They were being marketed to the military and police. The socks cost a bit more than average, but it is an option.
I suppose you could always surf around like I was doing (actually I was looking for camping gear and wilderness first aid stuff and these popped up on a site I looked at).
P.S. Just before I sent this I remember my Air Guard unit commander had two-toned socks, with white foot/black tops he bought to take to Desert Storm. I have no clue anymore where he got them, so they've been out there since at least 1990.

Makes me wonder what happend to NCO's. Is it your choice to decide whats acceptable or not? No, go get a Commision then change it, until then hold your damn Marines accountable and to the standard.

In fact, I still have an wear those particular socks years later. They are good to go.
Also, as long as the socks weren't white or too eccentric no one really cared what color they were.
I say, rifle, brain, feet... these are your three most important tools. I'll take care of my feet the way I need to and if that means buying socks that aren't regulation then, so be it.
But, then, I'm also not afraid to wear panty-hose to mitigate chaffing.

I just wear dark brown boot socks I bought from Wal-Mart, no one has said anything to me about them at all, they're comfortable, and I don't get blisters like the issued socks gave me, or dress socks. I think it just should be as long as it's not white, then you should be fine.
