History of Striped Tube Socks

Striped tube socks became a cultural touchstone of Americana in the tumultuous time of the late 1960's. During this era, many new individualistic sports such as skateboarding were taking off, and with it, a burning desire to carve out a personalized style. They served a second massive audience when people wanted to show further support for their preferred sports teams by wearing similarly colored striped socks.

Combining the above, plus many other niches created a cultural phenomenon; in some places it was rare to not see them when out and about. The stretch of the socks was awesome as it provided the ability to rock them knee high or ankle high, adding even more individualization. Red and blue stripes were the most popular variety of socks, as with the white of the cotton they resembled the American flag.

The popularity of them faded away in the 80's and throughout the 90's.

But then... Skater Socks arrived with a bang.
