Hockey is one of these sports where apparel is important. Players should not only wear the colors of their team but their team logo should be showcased prominently as well. As a result, unlike sports that are less organized, the apparel used for hockey teams must follow some established guidelines and socks are no exception.
So here are a few things you should know if you are planning to order some custom hockey socks:
- The sock model should be tube, also known as knee-high (see picture on the right)
- The color should be solid and there are usually a couple horizontal stripes toward the top of the sock
- A team logo is often featured on the side of the sock, with the team name and/or motto
- The socks should not be made out of cotton to avoid blisters – go for wick-moisture away fabric instead
Finally if you are ordering customized hockey socks for your team, it isn’t a bad idea to order a few extra pairs for fans as they like to wear their favorite team’s colors …
