I bought these socks on Sunday at the St Peters location. I have always been a NO SOCKS player. After buying my new Easton Mako skates, I got a few blisters. I had a very comfortable skate last night. The only area it didn't help was the rubbing on the ankle area, which I think might be an Easton problem. The socks were very comfy and I plan on wearing them for each game.
