The "partitive article," in this case "delle," indicates an unknown amount of something. Here it means "some socks." It is often used in Italian where it would be omitted in English. "I have socks" really means "I have some socks" but not a specific number. There's a fuller explanation here: http://italian.about.com/od/grammar/a/italian-partitive-articles.htm
