Masah over socks

Question: I read in a turkish fatwa site that it is aloud to make masah over socks. They say that this was the later opinion of Abu Hanifa, while before he was not of this opinion.

Answer : These are not socks as we know them today. These are basically shoes made out of textile, strong enough to travel in. See for an article on this.
... and Allah knows best.
