We made these for those who wear hard shell knee pads (good idea) or any one else who also likes really tall socks.
they have a lighter mesh on the calf for ventilation and arch and ankle support to keep them in place.
Brian "Chubs" Cortright gave us the idea by pointing out how during winter you want full leg coverage from the cold but knee pads go so much better with shorts than pants.... So know we have the PCA knee high sox to cover up the lower legs.....
talk about by skaters for skaters ;)
