Toe socks... well these are usually colorful and quirky and best for fussy kids. Toe socks are the only socks that you can wear with those silly toe athletic shoes. Now, toe-less socks like finger-less gloves commonly featured in movies with hobos, are another thing. Who decided to invent those and what are their purpose? Anyways, toe socks can be useful in some ways but it's probably best to stick to regular socks and to not wear these with sandals.
