We've seen Fox River but I'm curious if there are any other good socks to wear. Looking at dress, crew, and/or boot.

Don't know how common or uncommon my DS's experience was...but we sent him probably 30 pairs of black athletic socks in his plebe year. All black, bought them on Amazon in packs of 8 or 10. Easy to wear with low quarters and PT gear, and I don't think he was doing laundry that frequently. I think they were New Balance socks, but had no logo

Listed below is what we bought for our son last year for Beast. He said he needed the white socks for Beast, but he didn’t use them the rest of the year and actually brought most of them home.
During the school year, he found the black socks most useful to wear for almost everything, so after Beast I bought a lot more of those and mailed them to him.
The socks from Feetures are pricey but very good quality and last a long time. He really likes the black crew socks. He also likes the white crew socks, but he brought almost all of them home to wear on his breaks.

Boot socks:
Fox River (6074) wick dry max mid-calf boot socks, size large, coyote brown.

White crew socks for Beast/
Black dress/crew socks:
Feetures: high performance cushion crew, black/white, men’s large.

For the boot, sock does anyone know if the color matters because I have the Fox River ones and they are coyote brown but the packing list says the boot sock should be green or black?

To my knowledge, they can be coyote brown.

For black dress socks, Feetures makes some great socks. They are comfortable, moisture-wicking, and don't fall down like other dress socks such as Gold Toe.

For white athletic socks, I got Airacker. You can buy them in packs of 6 pairs. They're comfortable and durable.

I can vouch for Darn Tough hiking socks. I'd have no problem buying their tactical socks.

My DS likes Darn Tough Tactical Boot socks. They are all he wears, black, both for boots and low quarters. I think even for running. We balanced wool content because he has stinky feet. Darn tough (wool content) really help with that. For all the rest, we went with what was issued. If there is a label on the toe, like Darn Tough, it is not generally a problem.
