Women’s 1950s socks, such as classic teen’s bobby socks, were white fold down cuff socks. Some folded only once while other folded three times for a thicker cuff. White was the most common color but socks came in pink, red, navy, yellow, baby blue, tan and brown too. Some novelty designs featured cute characters embroidered on the cuffs such as poodles, music notes or catchy phrases.
