    Cutshield PRO-AIR 4 socks are so comfortable and soft on my feet that you couldn’t tell it’s a special protective sock. It is a sock that I can feel protected against the dangers of ice hockey. I wore them 4 games this weekend and they are my new favorite sock. I wear a kids size 3 shoe and the socks fit me.

    I’ve been playing hockey my entire life. As a now 50-year old senior skater, safety and comfort are my top priorities when selecting equipment. Knowing that Cutshoeld Hockey Socks can protect me from injury brings me great peace of mind. These are also some of the most comfortable socks I’ve worn in my 40 plus years on the ice.

    Thank you CUTSHIELD HOCKEY!!

    I just wanted to let you know that I am so happy with your socks!

    Your socks are so comfortable, and the fit is phenomenal! The sock around the foot is so thin, and feels seamless when I have them on. No bunching or clinging in my skates either. Just amazing!

    I’m a goalie and play 3 times a week. Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.The one day in-between skates gives me a chance to wash and dry them for the next skate. My socks (PRO-AIR 4) have seen about 24 washes to date and there is no sign of any wear, or the elastics loosening any. In fact, I find the upper sock wears like a compression sock almost, and once it’s in place they never slide down or bunch up. Being a goalie I’m up and down a lot during a game and I’m never distracted by feeling like these socks are moving, coming down or bunching up. They are so comfortable!

    I love your socks so much that I gave a pair of the AIR-4 to a really good friend of mine. He’s a forward and plays 4 times a week, and he absolutely loves them too! He normal wears a regular compression sock because he loves that fit. He can’t believe that these feel even better than his old socks, and will protect him 100% more too!!

    Excellent product CUTSHIELD HOCKEY!! Keep up the great work, and thanks for keeping us players protected, and safer on the ice!!

    Very Sincerely,

    The socks are comfortable and feel natural in the skate. After a game if you forget them in your bag they are not crunchy or gross as well, they seem to dry right off and stay feeling solid. The pair I had were a little tight around the calf but nothing made it hurt or uncomfortable. Just felt like I had taped my shingaurds down twice. All and all, solid material, solid socks, they are a beaut.

    These cut resistant socks are amazing not only do they give me peace and mind, but to know I’m protected, and the comfort level is great, they actually soak up any water penetration from the ice and or sweat.
    Great product , I’ve been wearing them since August 2021 and haven’t used any other socks since. To feel protected is to feel safe to play the game I love.
    Thank you!

    I love my Cutshield PRO-AIR 4 cut resistant hockey socks! They are super soft, non-itchy, comfortable and light weight. In the past, I almost lost my leg to a skate cut because of osteomyelitis. Cutshield socks give me great peace of mind knowing I’m protected.

    Cutshield PRO-AIR 4 socks are our new favourite pair of socks! We love how thin, soft, and comfortable they are. Our parents love knowing that we are protected against skate cuts. The Cutshield wrist protectors are thin and light while still protecting us from skate cuts”.

    I purchased the PRO-AIR 4 socks for my goalie, then a u11, now a u13. His summer goalie camp coach put an endorsement on his website and I thought why not. He might be local league (sometimes rep) but he has been on the bottom of a pile! Fortunately, they have not been needed that I’m aware of but they give me great piece of mind when I see him in a butterfly with lots of players digging for the puck!

  9. Anthony Lemarbre

    By far the best hockey socks i have ever worn they are comfortable, light, and really protective they became my go to socks for hockey and made me change my opinion about anti-cut socks because of my bad experience with other brands but those one are absolutely perfect. I highly recommend those socks to everybody! I was lucky enough to meet the owner of cutshield very nice guy so passionate in his work and that is proven into his product
