Ice hockey is one of the world’s fastest and most dangerous sports and cuts from skate blades are a constant risk. Several professional hockey franchises have taken preventative action to reduce serious cuts from skate blades just by changing their socks. Tactics Armoured Skate Socks and Armoured Hockey Socks incorporate Dupont™ Kevlar®, for strength and cut resistance, COOLMAX® Xtralife polyester for fit, comfort and dryness while minimizing wear and tear, abrasion-resistant CORDURA in the footpad, and shape-retaining LYCRA. Solefresh® yarn infused with Alphasan® inhibits odor and bacterial growth.
