Is there any uniform combination that is better with the solid white socks? I can’t think of a single one where solid white socks are the best option.

The only case for solid white socks is in place of colored socks when the colored socks are the same color as the pants creating the dreaded 'leotard-effect.'
In 2020-21 the Bills wore solid white socks under their blue pants in place of blue socks.
Only situation where the plain whites 'work.'

That could be one. It’s funny you mentioned the 2021 Bills, because that was the last year they used stripes and the half socks. If their socks were striped, white or blue, that combo would look much better to me. That picture you used is good for comparing each look.

The white helmet shows another problem. If the helmet was blue, that would help too. The only two white to one blue combo I like is blue socks. I remember your post about the “clean” look, but that’s my favorite look for white jerseys.

I’m curious. How does this site decide when to use the sock GIF’s?

We have something called "The Rule of Three" here at GUD.
If a minimum of 3 players on a team are doing something out of line with the majority uniform, we try to show it.
However, less than three does not get that special treatment.
For one of the London games last year the Saints wore their all-white throwback/Colo Rush.
A single DL wore black socks - which looked much better - while the rest of the team wore whites.
One is less than three so no representation on the site.

Understood. I was wondering why GUD did that instead of a disclaimer like the cleats. Good thing the old five square format is gone. That could have been messy, especially with the Chiefs.

Is this also how you decide the half-socks vs. full-length?

The Cowboys and Patriots may have answered my disclaimer question. The intended socks were white for their special jerseys, but multiple players wore red for the Pats and navy for the Cowboys. While both looked better than white, a new disclaimer would be needed. The NFL really needs to start enforcing the sock rules again. Or at least require stripes on the white socks.
