Hockey socks?

keHey all..

Normally I just wear Nike ankle cut socks but definitely need to change it up. I am getting deep cuts on my ankles and wicked blisters on my toes. I think I need a thinner, taller sock.

Do you guys just wear higher athletic socks or have specific hockey style socks? I want something breathable but with high abrasion protection.

Any ideas?

With abrasion protection meaning skate cuts or just not to get blisters?

I've always worn ankle socks with palyer skates and now especially with goalie skates.

Sounds like your skates aren't properly fitted.

I've got Under Armour knee-high socks that I quite like. They're a pretty good thickness but breath pretty well. I've not had any problems with blisters (but then I rarely get blisters anyway). I prefer the high socks to keep my knee pads from pinching against bare skin.

I use cut resistant socks, like to feel as protected as I can be from injury and they are surprisingly comfortable.

I use a Bauer thin sock and it works fine. If I can't, I use a plain dress sock. My feet seem to be immune to lace bite/blisters, so I can't recommend anything there.

I use Drymax LiteMesh skate socks that go up over my calves. I love them. They keep my feet cool and dry in my skates and my legs cool and dry under my shinguards. I've never had any problems with blisters either, comfortable overall.

Any of these will do really:


Socks are socks. I personally use the ProFeet because they were the cheapest. I couldn't use regular socks or go barefoot though. Regular socks just feel weird the whole time and barefoot makes me feet incredibly sore for days.

Great product, comfy. Really an upgrade from regular athletic socks I used to wear before.
