TCK Defender Over the Knee Padded Football Baseball Socks
I rarely leave reviews, but when a product is really good or really bad i think it is deserving.
I am an adult male in good athletic shape. Not skinny with bird legs and not fat. These socks have some real design flaws that effect the functionality and limit their use to a very specific leg type and shape. The foot bed was extreamly long. I wear a 12, so I ordered the 12-15 option. The extra footbed material was half way up my calf. The second problem is the lack of elasticity in the socks. I could barely get tge socks over my foot. It was even harder to get them over my calf and knee. They have an elasticity capacity that limits the stretch to work fir someone with the very skinniest of legs. Basically, if you have any muscle on your legs these are going to be too tight. They were so tight they actually hurt. They left marks on my legs for hors after wearing them, which I won't be doing again. MK Socks, would do good by finding a different supplier for their over the knee sports socks. That all being said, MK Socks was timely with their delivery and seems like a good company.
I was having a hard time finding over the knee socks to wear with baseball knickers. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to pay the price for these socks but they were worth it. The extra length is perfect. My boys are hard on their socks and holes were always forming in the toes or footbed of the sock. These stood up to the last half of the season. There are no holes. The padding is great for preventing blisters also. The only thing my sons found as a negative were that they are hard to get on but for all the positives this sock has, it is worth it. They are easy to get off though. I do recommend these socks.
My 13yo son loves these socks!
I bought the largest size socks offered and they are really tight around the calves. This is coming from someone that doesn’t have big calves.
My son has very long legs and likes to wear the knicker style baseball pants. These fit great with them and don’t slip down.
