  • See bobby sox.

  • "Bobby soxer is a 1940s sociologic coinage denoting the over zealous, usually teenage girls, fans of singer Frank Sinatra, the first singing teen idol; by the 1950s, fashionable adolescent girls wore poodle skirts and rolled down their socks to the ankle. In high schools, the gymnasium often was used as a dance floor; however, since street shoes and street detritus might damage the polished wood floors, the students were required to remove their shoes and dance in their bobby socks--thus the phrase 'sock hop'."
