Its a great concept but like the old Lexan full shield face masks & Cooperall pant systems sans socks altogether, impracticable.... I'd say back to the drawing boards on that one.
I don't think you can write them off as a total failure without trying them, or before they've been extensively utilized. There must be a good reason why NHL equipment managers and high level players are recommending them.
I'd never wear them though, I can't stand wearing socks when I play.
