About the Kobe X9800 Knit Hockey Socks
Why fix what's not broken, right?
"New style" mesh hockey socks have been around for over 15 years now, yet we still see about 50% of our customers spring for the old, reliable knit hockey socks.
What's kept them around, you ask? They're less expensive, have more forgiving sizing, and "hug" the shin pad more tightly than more modern socks.
The X9800 socks are designed to match the striping patterns of the house league jersey series (XJ5 and 5200). That said, they generally follow colour schemes of NHL teams and can be a nice match to other jerseys as well! Socks are all in-stock and ready to ship from a Toronto-based warehouse within 1-2 business days!

Sock Cut Details
• Available sizes:
These knit hockey socks can stretch an extra 2-3 inches. Due to the cotton content, they can shrink up to 4 inches in a washer/dryer cycle (the more heat applied, the more they will shrink). To avoid shrinkage we recommend washing in cool water and air drying.
Please note: There is no "adult" or "youth" sizing in socks. For example, almost all adult men will wear at least a medium (26") sock.
Sizing increments vary substantially by sock model and brand. The most accurate way to determine sock sizing is by measuring the length and finding the correct length required.
All Kobe knit hockey socks are 65% polyester, 35% cotton (150D yarn).
See sizing tab for details on potential shrinkage.
Kobe X9800 knit hockey socks have a matching house league hockey jersey (one or both of the XJ5 and 5200).
Please see the product description for links to the appropriate matching jersey.
Kobe X9800 knit hockey socks are manufactured in Scarborough (Toronto), Ontario, Canada using imported fabric. Read more about Kobe Sportswear here.
Because knit hockey socks utilize special, dedicated machines not used for manufacturing other products (e.g. jerseys, mesh hockey socks, etc.), backorders tend to be less frequent and shorter in the event they do occur (typically 2-3 weeks).
