Contrary to what the name may suggest, ice hockey socks do not actually go over the foot as a traditional sock would; they are instead used to go over a player's shin pads and hold everything in place. They are available in a traditional knitted option or a more lightweight flex style.
Some ice hockey players like to go barefoot in their ice skates to connect better with the ice. However, going barefoot can make your skates smell more from the extra moisture and leave your feet more prone to blisters and hot spots.
If you prefer the feel of your skate when you’re out on the ice, go for a thin sock — make sure your ice hockey skate is baked for a better fit around your foot and less chance of blisters or pressure points.
If you love the feel of a thicker sock in your skate, go for an old-school knitted hockey sock. Not only will knitted socks cushion your feet, but they can also protect your legs from blade cuts and blisters.
Whether you choose a thicker or thinner sock, remember that it will affect how your skate fits. Play around with what feels good for you, and then stick with it after you get your skates thermoformed for peak comfort and performance.
