At the start of the 2013 season, Tuff-N-Lite Hockey was approached by the Los Angeles Kings to develop a cut resistant material to be used in the back of game socks. Working closely with their equipment staff, we developed a cut level 4 liner, the highest comfortable level of protection available, that weigh only 1.2 ounces, are thin, stretchable and breathable.
That same fibre is used to make our 9 x 9 panels and our new cut level 4 sani thin Pro-Air skate socks.
As is the tradition with all Stanley Cup winners, game used items were sent to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. Game socks with Tuff-N-Lite Hockey liners were one of those items.
