RBK edge pro stock socks

Can anyone suggest where I could get a pair or 2 of these? I don't want retail, as I hear they are not worth the money. Would prefer Toronto white or blues, but generally something with blue/white (eg. StL, Buf, Van).

At your team's equipment sale at the end of the season. I got Habs ones for 10$ a pair.

They are like 30 bucks at PHL.

Even though it has nothing to do with anything, would just like to say that i personally hate these socks (look and feel). I will stick with the old school 10 bucks a pop socks.

Equipment sales for teams, and they pop up on e-bay fairly often.

hockeymonkey.com or hockeygiant.com

It's too bad that Sportchek doesn't have them. They only have the all white or all black socks.

Those are not pro stock ones. Those are retail edge, which are not nearly as good a sock. The material is thinner, cheaper and won't stick to velcro, so they have a velcro tab that never matches up to anybody's jock.

I like the look of the RBK Edge socks, but alas the retail versions are a little lacking (sounds like the pro stock ones are 100% better).

In all reality, I really like the old style socks (i.e. CCM), they stick well to the velcro on the jock shorts and are more traditional (don't get me wrong, I'll look for a pair of RBK pro stock stocks the next time the Sharks have a team sale).

I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing. Hockey socks are the things that go over your shin pads. I think you're talking about skate socks.
