tube socks are usually longer than crew socks and dont have a left and right sock. crew socks are typically shorter and each pair of socks has a left sock and right sock. the difference is something along those lines. most people prefer crew socks, I prefer ankle socks

I have never seen socks with a 'left' and a 'right'.
You must shop in places that are waaaaay too expensive for me!

Ooooooh...below the belt. But yes, tube socks basically look like a big condom :) without a right or left designation. Crew socks have a left/right pair.

I have never seen left/right socks. Tube socks are straight. Crew socks are shaped like a foot. They have a heel formed into them.
