One way to have a better skating experience is to use High Performance skating socks. These socks were designed specifically for skating by selecting the best materials, patterns and features to ensure incredible fit and performance. The pique construction and double pique shin area provide allround comfort and reinforcement in the areas where the feet may feel the most pressure. The socks are also right and left specific to optimize padding and fit when pushing off on the skates as well as in cruising mode. Antimicrobial properties reduce odors and maintain natural balance in the skin, friction reducing materials prevent blisters, provide a softer touch and wick away perspiration. A sock for all skaters that will out perform expectations in a skate sock. Durability, comfort, increased shape retention and technical features make this the only thing that should come between one's foot and their skates.
