Washing after Touching Socks

Does touching the socks on my feet require me to wash my hands as touching shoes does?


No. Socks are distinct from shoes, and there is no automatic obligation of washing hands after touching them.

Only if the socks are sweaty, and therefore your hands become soiled, will there be an obligation of washing before davening or learning Torah etc.

Best wishes.
