IIHF Hockey Socks
 
Any idea where to get the Nike hockey socks they wear in the WJC's? I also see some college teams wear them but have not seen them for sale anywhere on the internet.

not nike but if all else fails they should have it matching.

Thanks, but both of those have the traditional hockey sock for sale. The Nike sock is made of different material and have a different look as seen in the WJC's. I am looking for th sock the NHL players wore in the Turin Winter Olympics, since the WJC's are back I thought I would give it another shot.

Are you talking about these, that all the teams wore at the Turin Olympics?

Yeah I don't believe they are out on the market...the vertical stripes weren't a big hit with many. I personally like them...eBay is probably your best bet. I've seen them on there a couple times. But if you wanted something similar, try some mesh socks. They got a bit of a tight stretchy fit, and arn't as thick as traditional ones, but no where near those Nike ones probably.

I have a pair. They are not on the market.

Very tight, very light. If you fall you actually pick up speed.

Let me know if you find anything. Wouldn't mind having some myself.

Tikkanen 12-27-2006 10:35 PM

I think most of the European teams wear them as well, I find it hard to believe with so many players wearing this new style of sock they don't exist for sale anywhere on the planet. I look on Ebay periodically but haven't found anything.

ModSquad 12-27-2006 11:01 PM

No, the Euros wear mesh socks. The Nike Swift is not mesh.

I remember a website that made socks like those European teams wear. You can have them custom made too...so you could replicate that look, but the material is different like the poster said above. I need to find that site.....

lol, good luck. I've never seen them for sale online or in a hockey related store, or have I seen someone wearing them. They're really not as bad as people are making them out to be.

Here's a pic of Esa Tikkanen playing for Jokerit a few years ago, looks like the Nike sock to me:

It is not the same sock.

The Nike Swift sock is super-tight, with Dri-Fit and a vent on the back of the leg and a ripstop material that resists abrasion.

What I don't like about them is that while the front has a velcro tab for your jock, the back doesn't. It is a sock you definitely have to wear garters with.

It keeps everything in place but it is a workout putting them on.

How did you get access to a pair?

ModSquad 12-29-2006 11:53 AM

I know very important people in this industry.

There was a discussion on my message board and Nike got me a pair to test.
