Hockey clothing should not only look nice, it can also prevent injuries. Make sure you buy light, flexible clothing that doesn’t pinch. Moisture-absorbing and breathable clothing will maintain your body temperature in warm weather, and in cold temperatures it will prevent you from cooling down too quickly.
Socks with holes can easily cause blisters because your walking surface has become irregular. Socks with a terry cloth footbed are comfortable and long lasting. Buying a tracksuit is also very smart, because you wear it before and after hockey and it keeps you warm. When muscles cool down, you are at a higher risk of getting an injury.
