80s. At least in Canada, but as been noted elsewhere, Canada doesn't always get trends in the same decade as the US.
Tennis socks, mmy mom used to call them. I remember them well from the 1970s, and I miss them. Those little pompoms had a purpose; they acte as anchors so the footies didn't slide down into your shoe! I wear footie socks all summer, and am always pulling them out of my sneakers.
Definitely a 70's thing, and on into the 80's. I started playing tennis after watching Chris Evert play in the 70's and I was rocking the little pom pom socks every time!
My kids have those now. Got them at The Children's Place 2 or 3 years ago. They had a variety of colors for the edge and the pom-pom.
