Socks + Your game = Does it make a difference?
For me? Yes. It does. How? Let me explain.
When you’re on the court and it’s starting to heat up (literally), your whole body starts to sweat. Including your feet. You don’t want your feet to sweat, it feels uncomfortable. That’s where the socks come in. These aren’t your ordinary socks. These are basketball socks that are made to prevent sweat from interfering with your game.
There are tons of basketball socks out there, but I’ll be talking about the ones I use when playing.
- Nike HyperElite Socks:
A. Comfort- 3.5 out of 5.
B. Fit- 5 out of 5
C. Ventilation- 2.5/3 out of 5
Overall- It could have been the best if it wasn’t for the ventilation of the socks. To me, that was the problem. I don’t know if you guys have the same problem, but I certainly thought that they could have made some adjustments to make it a bit better.
- Adidas Team Speed Traxion Crew Socks:
A. Comfort- 4 out of 5
B. Fit- 3.5 out of 5
C. Ventilation- 4.5 out of 5
Overall- The ventilation was better than the HyperElite’s but the fit was not as good. I like socks that are tight around your feet and legs.
- OBBO Tempo Socks:
A. Comfort- 4.5 out of 5
B. Fit- 3 out of 5
C. Ventilation- 4 out of 5
Overall- Comfort was really good but it did lack a whole lot in the fit department. Ventilation was above average. It’s just the fit man, c’mon.
Total overall: I prefer the Adidas Team Speed Traxion Crew Socks. It’s comfy and snug and provides good ventilation. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t buy the other socks, it still depends on what is more comfortable for you.
