About Tube Socks:
Tube socks are socks designed in the shape of a long tube that extends above the ankle, partially covering the calf. Tube socks feature a ribbed cuff which prevents socks from sliding down the leg. Tube socks will often feature knitted heels as well as padded soles and padded toes for added comfort.
