I recently procured a comfortable pair of casual brown shoes but realized that I don't know what kind of socks to wear with them. I normally pair them with either jeans or khaki shorts so I tend to shy away from any type of dress socks. But I also know athletic socks are a no go.

With shorts, is it acceptable to pair them with no show socks? As for jeans, I'm always at a loss as to what color to wear as "matching socks to pants" just seems weird....

some neutral, chunky hiking socks would work. Heathered greys, browns, ivory, etc. 

e.g.

Black doesn't work too well.  The socks should complement the trousers, not necessarily match them.

Except that jeans are meant to expose the socks unless you're one of those fashioney cuff the jeans to show some ankle kind of guys. 

Casual shoes with shorts . . . I'm not the fashion police but . . . 

If they are hiking style casuals (as in the picture above) then OK, otherwise I agree.

Hiking shoes while not hiking . . . I dunno . . . it's one thing with jeans for an outdoorsy autumn look but, in the city, in the summer, it just seems out of place to me.

"As for jeans, I'm always at a loss as to what color to wear as "matching socks to pants" just seems weird...."

Just wear black socks then. Not dress socks. Casual black socks.

Socks are supposed to match your pants, not your shoes.

Gotcha. Can you help me find socks to match my pants? 

Yep.  Red, white or blue socks or any combination of the three.

I can't wear Norwegian pants with American socks!
