Performance Skate Socks

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to spend roughly $20 on a pair of performance skate socks. I've been looking around online and I can't seem to narrow it down to a certain brand. I'll post a few of the socks I have been looking at below. Are the cut-resistant/protective socks really worth the extra cash? My skates tend to fight a bit tight, so I'm not looking for anything too thick.

+1 for the synergy socks. By far my favourite. I've got a pair of Bauer elite performance socks which cost me $45 and the synergy socks that cost around $15 and I always end up choosing the Eastons over the Bauers.

The Eastons were free with my Makos. I also have a pair of the top of the line Bauer socks and still prefer the Easton.

I agree Swiftwick for sure. I've tried many and these are the way to go. Extremely comfortable, very good compression and very durable. I have not used anything since

I'm waiting to hear some feedback on the new Bauer performance socks with the 37.5 tech. If the 37.5 fabric works anywhere as good as it does with the shirt that might be a game changer for me.

I'm wondering the performance of the new Lexus models. Can you help me with that?

I'm very interested in this. I'm looking at a few of the Bauer shirts and socks with 37.5 technology. How drastic or significant is the difference in comparison to other brands? I currently use Nike, Under Armour, and Reebok shirts, which aren't specifically meant for hockey, but I'm still curious what your thoughts are.

IMO it depends on what kind of texture you like. Personally i like something that feels a little more natural. I've tried a few and these are my 2 favorite pairs. They both wick sweat away nicely and have great traction with the inside of the boot. They are very durable as well. The reeboks are slightly thicker and have a looser weave. Both are quality socks though.

The 37.5 is nice, bought one of the new compression jocks and it's awesome

Oh they have new ones? Are they the cup on the inside ones like the previous bauer elite model?

I have been using the 37.5 Bauer socks with the skate cut protection- Elite or whatever they are called. The socks and my feet are dry after games, and I am a sweating machine ordinarily. The liner of my skates is a bit damp, but nothing extreme.

I've used the Bauer Premium socks and the Easton Synergy socks and neither of them compare to the Smartwool socks here http://www.smartwool.com/socks/ski/mens-phd-ski-ultra-light-socks.html?swatch=Black I used to skate barefoot in my old Bauer 4000 skates and it is difficult to do in these new skates so the Smartwool has been the best sock for me.
