The latest piece of kit is the Shinnerz or under sock that is worn as an under-layer beneath the shin pad to protect the shin. They are light weight fast drying sports inner socks that do not change your shoe size. Until now players have often resorted to wear double socks – i.e. one sock under the shin pad and then a further pair of hockey socks on top – this however creates not only a larger foot size but also increases the chance of blisters.
