The all new OSAKA SOX have been developed to specifically suit the needs of the modern hockey players. Different weaves in different areas ensure your legs and feet receive the support and compression they need. The back of the calf features a mesh so your muscles have room to contract and stretch. Around the ankle and the top of the sock there are 2 compression ribs to make sure the sock does not slide off and the shinguard stays in place. And the bottom of the foot area has been reinforced with thicker fabric to make sure you will be able to enjoy this sock for many games and practice sessions.
