What do the sneakers look like? Are they full blown athletic shoes or are they more like casual shoes?I use sneakers, chinos and Polo (occasionally casual button down shirt)to work.
I've been using just white socks.
Seems I'm a little late on this one. What color/type socks are usually work with this combo?

I agree. But I have to admit that I find it difficult to stand around in grown-up shoes. I can walk for miles every day in leather soles, but just standing around is not easy!Healthcare requires a great deal of standing, but I always favor proper grown up shoes over trainers.
Thank all for your help.For modern running sneakers, the only thing I can think of that might work with chinos in a work environment a bit better than a white athletic sock is Wigwam's Cypress sock.
The reason I like this sock for your situation is because it has heft and marling which keeps it from being at all dress-sock like (you don't want that with sneakers), but is a bit more "refined" than a pure white sock which can be somewhat jarring and gym-like, especially in a work environment.
The heft / marling holds up well with the sneaker but, in a coordinated color (see next paragraph), segues nicely to the chino and looks a bit more professional than white athletic socks.
For stone / off-white chinos, I have found the white/grey (surprisingly) works well. But since the Cypress comes in many colors, you can - as noted in above posts - coordinate it with your pants' color.

There are hybrid solutions to this. Supposedly the Cole Haan zerograndes are great.I agree. But I have to admit that I find it difficult to stand around in grown-up shoes. I can walk for miles every day in leather soles, but just standing around is not easy!
