Sock hop - duh

Oh I am so dumb. From a website 'explaining' the Day The Music Died lyrics.

"You both kicked off your shoes

A reference to the beloved "sock hop".(Leather-soled street shoes tear up wooden basketball floors, and rubber-soled sneakers grip too much for dance moves, so dancers had to take off their shoes.)"

It never occurred to me that this is the meaning and origin of 'sock hop'.
