You don' wear double pairs of socks just like that, it cuts the blood circulation in your toes by preventing them from moving too much.

But as you saw in the all star games, players have customized socks so they don't get blisters or staph infection, as you saw with Rick Nash, and Joe Thornton who previously had a staph infection on his elbow, it required operating on, he learned his lesson.
