Best Socks
Ciankc (Manchester United) 6 years ago
Hey! I was wondering, what are the best type of soccer socks? I get blisters really easily, and I have nike dri fits.

The only problem is, it takes like 10 minutes just to put them on! Can someone reccomend some good soccer socks to me?

Ankle Pads! They absorb all the shock from a tackle and are great againts blisters. I have shoes that are a bit big on the sides. (T90 Lasers) and the socks are really thin. So the ankle pads protect me

Haha Yea I can't believe the people that go out there with tiny shin pads that don't provide any protection whatsoever. I always make sure to get ones with ankle pads other wise I get a tackle and am out for the next three games

Haha yes. Also another thing. Ankle padding enables us to obtain almost all the shock from a twist of the ankle. It helped me loads. I have weak ankles from all those ankle twists in the past but with the pads. I obtain a lot of the shock, and in a few minutes the pain goes and I heal quickely.

Wear to pairs of socks.

You can do this by either wearing your footy socks then some of those small white nike socks (which makes you look like a ronaldo wannabe)

Or by buying some socks that can go under footy socks.

OR you can buy sports tape and put it where you are getting the blisters

Hate the tape. Makes me look goofy

You should wear reflective tape, That way is distracts the other team
