A lot of people don't realize when you completely sever the achilles it shoots up your leg and has to be pulled back down. Looks nasty, I'd rather spend $20 and play hockey in safety and I think the NHL needs to mandate these kevlar socks. Hockey is still that caveman-like sport where men object to safety because they claim they are more comfortable in the less safe option.
