Does anybody make a THIN sock a man could wear with shorts?

I am a man with relatively wide feet. Finding shoes which fit well is not easy, but I have found brands that work for me. (I adore my Birkenstock Londons, that's for sure. But I don't wear those with socks or long pants.) I live in a warm climate and spend much of the year in shorts. I'd like to be able to wear athletic or all-terrain shoes comfortably.
However, I can only find socks I could wear with shorts which are thick. Very thick. So thick that my wide shoes don't fit well anymore. Ankle length, mid-calf length, over-the-nostrils length, with swooshes, logos, in black, white, gray, or red, are all thick, thick, thick.
Granted, the work socks I wear with long pants are thin enough that I can wear any shoes with them. But black mid-calf socks with shorts? I don't think so.
Help me buy socks, Hive Mind!
