  • Comfortable knit socks. 

     I just saw the term today even though it's been around for decades.  This is a different sock from athletic socks, or thin dress socks which go into dress shoes. 
    The image search results lean towards the gray woolen knit socks which sock monkeys are made from, but these can be any colour and seem to group the 'comfort' types of socks. 
    Earliest search result was a 1917 'log cabin' sock.   edit to add: man, this comment totally looks spammy.
