The incident got myself to believe that equipment is everything. Forget just performance. First comes comfort, but YOU HAVE TO PROTECT YOURSELF. It looks like the kevlar socks are just like any other socks and I will def buy it. 30-40 is steep but I think its important especially after seeing this. Maybe even some padding back there. Like a flap.

The Soviets were smart in their orgin of sports. They knew the importance of athletics was health and prevention of injury. Who cares how fast, strong, good you are if you are hurt... Thats why they were all forced to wear helmets. They looked weird but you heard less tragic stories.

And that idealogy should stand. Safety first. As a hockey player, you have to understand anything can happen and you have to protect the most fragile areas. Achilles, head, eyes... do your best to protect these.
