Best Kevlar Hockey Socks
 
Looking for the right pair of Kevlar Socks, any recommendations?

I'm using the Bauer Elite socks, but they're expensive, around $45.

Are they thick socks? I've always skated barefoot and im wondering if they'll be too thick and hinder my skating...

I LOVE my Reebok 20Ks. Again, expensive ($40/pair), but well worth it. I have three pairs I rotate.

They're also thin, like you're looking for. I can't stand thick socks or socks with too much support, but also can't stand socks too thin, as it feels like I slip. These are a very, very happy medium. They also go far up the calf for extra protection.

My only complaint, and this is a very small one, is that you can't wash them with anything that's Velcro because it seems like the hooks of Velcro tug on the regular threads under the protective layer. Otherwise, they're perfect.

They're medium thickness. I used to use Easton Synergy socks, and they're thinner than the Bauer's I have now.
