These socks made out of soft calf leather are Khuffs. If you please visit the link giving below you’ll find the answer to your question giving by Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and Islamic scholar, who states:

Wiping with wet hands on leather socks, instead of washing the feet, is considered not only permissible when done in conformity with the prescribed conditions but also reviving a Sunnah of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). It is making use of a rukhsah (allowance) granted to us by the Law-giver and as the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Allah loves people to make use of His allowances just as He loves them to comply with His commandments.”
In the classical manuals of Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence), wiping is generally taken to be restricted to leather socks.

Take care.
