For those of you who are part of a cycling team or are organizing cycling events (whether it’s road, mountain biking, etc …) you might wonder what type of sock you should get as there is no strict rule for that sport.
Well, while you can rule out tube socks, unless you are following 1890’s fashion trends, these are mostly ankle socks – and sometimes crew socks – that are used as custom cycling socks …
Please note this means that both regular ankle socks and shorter no-show socks are used as bike socks. To get an idea, you can check on the right an example of a custom cycling sock made for one of our clients.
Hockey is one of these sports where apparel is important. Players should not only wear the colors of their team but their team logo should be showcased prominently as well. As a result, unlike sports that are less organized, the apparel used for hockey teams must follow some established guidelines and socks are no exception.
So here are a few things you should know if you are planning to order some custom hockey socks:
- The sock model should be tube, also known as knee-high (see picture on the right)
- The color should be solid and there are usually a couple horizontal stripes toward the top of the sock
- A team logo is often featured on the side of the sock, with the team name and/or motto
- The socks should not be made out of cotton to avoid blisters – go for wick-moisture away fabric instead
Finally if you are ordering customized hockey socks for your team, it isn’t a bad idea to order a few extra pairs for fans as they like to wear their favorite team’s colors …
