Bobby Socks and Saddle Shoes ?

Alright, how strict is the definition of a bobby sock or a saddle shoe?  I've got to admit, they're both terms I've known most of my life, but I never gave much thought to either style.  So, I looked it up.  According to the often inaccurate Wikipedia,  a bobby sock has to be white, and a saddle shoe is white with a black or brown leather band across the instep.  Neither description matches the the girl on the right.  Still, these two look like they're from the era when that sort of footwear was popular with high school and college girls, and the socks and shoes look close, so variations on a style, or something totally different?
