What is the reasoning behind wearing two pairs of socks when playing basketball? I have been considering it because i see of lot of players wearing two pairs of socks but i don't know what for. So, what is the point of wearing two pairs of socks when playing basketball and should i wear two pairs of socks while playing basketball?

I think that wearing two pairs of socks is more for show than anything. I don't know if it is anymore comfortable than wearing a pair of plain athletic socks, but I prefer to wear one pair. But if you think that it is more comfortabble than what you normally wear, than you should go for it, since comfort matters more than style.
I agree with the previous comment. In most cases, wearing two pairs of socks is simply for style. If someone is wearing 2 pairs for any reason other than that, it is probably for ankle support, to reduce blisters, or for additional comfort, like an insole.
Hope this helps.
i wore 2 pairs of socks this past season and since then and i personally like it better than just one. i wore 2 pairs of nike socks (as seen in the attatched photo) originally i did it for looks thinking it would look cool. but i found out that it also helped with blisters cause i would always get tons of blisters on the bottoms of my feet. wearing two pairs of socks gives you more padding therefor you will get less blisters. but you have to make sure that the socks are pulled tight otherwise they rub and dont help at all. also my shoes were a little big, ordering them off-line so i couldnt try them on. and they helped with that aswell
As much as I like the ipad, I��m happy I am waiting for the second gen. I need at least 512 mbytes of ram, I want 1 gig. And I need the camera on the front, don��t really care about the back but it��s on the other two so why not the big cahoona.
I highly doubt that a flimsy sock could support the force put on your ankles on the court but I'm no expert.
The correct answer is for cushioning....or to make shoes that are slightly big more confortable.
I wear 2 pairs of socks for that i dont get blissters on my feet, and somewhat because it looks cool. i just think its is more comforable that way, it just doesnt hurt my feet as much. this is my own opinion tho.
