a paragraph from catcher in the rye in the chapter 17, "We took off our goddam skates and went inside this bar where you can get drinks and watch the skaters in just your stocking feet" Wondering what's"in one's feet"Is that an expression?

'in just your stocking feet' means while wearing stockings (an old fashioned word for socks) but without wearing shoes.

'stocking feet' = 'socks on your feet'

We use 'in' to talk about what we are wearing. You can watch other skaters wearing just your socks. 'I woke up in the clothes that I was wearing the night before.' 'I was standing in the rain wearing only my t-shirt and shorts' or 'I was was standing in the rain in just my t-shirt and shorts.'
