Odds are, you wouldn't wear thick cotton socks with your best dress shoes. Not just because it wouldn't look right, but because your foot (and sock) wouldn't fit properly inside their tight, leather surroundings. The same is true with your skates. Your skates will fit better and you'll experience less foot slippage inside the boot with the proper socks.
The Bauer Elite Performance Skate Socks, are designed specifically for hockey players and hockey skates. A thin, well ventilated design, makes entry and exit of the boot a seamless transition, while a unique, Y-seam construction, improves sock-fit within the skate and eliminates sock bunching. A backward-shifted toe seam helps reduce chafing at the toe box.
Protection is also a premium with the Elite Socks. Exclusive Kevlar brand fibers provide your lower leg with cut resistant protection against unforeseen rigors of the game. With yellow protection zones encompassing the entire lower leg area, around the calf, Achilles heel, and ankle area, your feet have never seen this level of protection in a sock. A slight compression fit and longer length further protection by improving blood flow throughout the leg. Moisture control is achieved via Thermo-Max performance yarn technology that wicks moisture away from the skin while also helping to control odor.
The bottom line is the better your feet feel and the better they fit in the skates, the more power you'll have, and the better you'll play.
