CCM Oxysox

I'd like to hear about others' experience with these. For ~$20 I'd like to know if there's any real benefit over my standard skate socks.

I wouldn't think so. I'd just deal with cold feet.

Not so much temperature, I rarely get cold on the ice and don't even wear socks under my Vectors.

I'm looking more at a dryness & breathing for summer roller. I have to wear socks under my Bauers because in the summer my feet get wetter and that's when I start to get rubbing problems. I've already drilled 20+ holes in my skates' tongues to help with airflow. I want to know how these socks do from a dryness standpoint.

Got me there. I've had a cheaper pair of "performance socks" and it wasn't too much of a difference.

I'm hoping someone has used them and loved them/hated them just to get a take on their attributes.

I just think it's dumb to pay that much for socks. Any athletic sock will do, as long as there are no holes. Just my opinion.

I personally wear Nike Dri-Fit high-cut socks when I skate. They seem to wick away the moisture fairly well, and they cost $18 for 6 pairs.

go on ebay and search oxysox.

i got 6 pair for $20, they don't say ccm, but they are from oxysox.
I could be wrong but i think the main idea of oxysox is they are like a compression sock. They are tighter to help keep the muscles warm and less prone to strain.

I got the long over the calf oxys because the straps from my rbk shin pads drive me nuts on my bare skin.

If you just want wicking, google liner socks. Or you could just get long dress socks.

Been skating in Oxys for 5 years and won't switch to anything else. It promotes circulation because it is a tighter-fitting sock.

Did you drill holes in the tongue or the footbed? Because holes down on the footbed help drain excess sweat from the boot, not too sure if that will help your problems...

I've used Nike Dri fits, the newer Nike/Bauer hockey socks and the Synergy socks and I think the OxySocks are the best. The Synergy socks might be better for roller since they are a bit thinner but they got holes in them pretty quickly.

I have 4 pairs of these socks. They keep my feet dry and blister free, and I don't get as tired when I wear them.

They work great for me. I am less fatigued and have more energy. It could be a placebo effect, but I won't play without them.
