Pros: Great value, Quality, Easy to use
Cons: some durability issues
Compared to traditional knit hockey socks, these are definitely an upgrade. They're lighter and more breathable than traditional knit socks, and I can say for sure I can tell the difference when wearing them. They won't make you play better, but they're more comfortable. My only issue with them is durability. It seems they get rips and tears in them more easily. Overall, I'd sacrifice some durability over comfort and continue to purchase these types of socks. I've had a pair for about 2 years, well worth the extra few dollars compared to a knit sock.
