This is a woolen tube-style sock that can be worn by both feet. It has no end and no beginning, just two holes for cold feet. The heat is evenly exchanged between the feet.

For a romantic evening, consider two socks four feet.

       Presumably, if you weren't sure if it was cold enough to tuck your feet up inside nice warm socks or not, you should wear (Calvin) Klein socks. Also (see link) it's good that we have a "fashion: hosiery: socks: theory" category.

       While willing to be informed if our facts are incorrect, we suspect there may be Prior Art in this field, relating to a device called a "bag" ...

       so... a tube ?

       // It has no end and no beginning //   

       Actually, that implies an interesting topology. It's a torus ? So where are the foot-holes ?

       There's no foot hole. Ergo, you are knitted into the torus at manufacture.

       Sounds comfy for when I prop up my feet for two cups of the same coffee...

       Sounds like the sort of nightmare caused by a fever ...

       Topologically speaking, all humans are toruses, not just those born in May.

       This is not a complex topology but I suppose a torus or tube describes it. Or a sock with an ankle hole where the toes would be.

       //Topologically speaking, all humans are toruses// That is not however, the optimal orientation for wearing the toroidal sock.
pocmloc, Jan 25 2019
  

       It could even be a toroidal tube, if I'm imagining it right. And it has one hole AFAICT. Also if I'm imagining it right, it would not be suitable for walking much in.
