Their comfortable, breathable design makes them suitable to wear before, during, and after games so you can experience a shorter recovery time and less overall discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do Compression Socks Help with Ice Hockey?

Ice hockey requires players to balance on skates while bearing down with their legs to move quickly through the rink. These movements strengthen and tone leg muscles but also leave players prone to chafed ankle joints and leg cramps—especially through the calf.

Compression socks for ice hockey players can alleviate and reduce the occurrence of leg cramps by supporting the leg with graduated pressure. This pressure improves blood flow and reduces muscle strain so you can play for longer and have a shorter recovery time afterward.

What Is Nurse Yard’s Design for Compression Socks?

Many compression socks only offer compression. At Nurse Yard, our compression socks feature a specially designed comfort system to protect and support your legs from ankle to knee. 

Since you can’t stop a hockey game to adjust your socks, our design starts with a knitted no-slip cuff that will keep your compression socks in place until you take them off. Next, we added a cushioned ankle and light arch support to protect and comfort the foot. Finally, we used a wave-knit pattern through the calf to deliver graduated pressure. 

How Do I Know What Size of Compression Sock to Get?

Compression socks that are too loose won’t stay in place, while socks that are too tight may disrupt your circulation or abrade the skin. With a flexible measuring tape and Nurse Yard’s sizing chart, you can easily determine what size compression socks you need for leg cramp relief. 

Begin by measuring around the widest part of your calf with the flexible measuring tape—it should lay snug against your skin without making a dent. Then, use your calf measurement and shoe size to choose your compression sock size from our chart. 

For example, if your calf circumference is 11 inches and you wear a size 9 women’s shoe, our L/XL women’s compression sock will fit you best. 

However, if you’re between sizes, you should choose your size based on your preferred fit in the foot. Our compression socks are roomy in the toes, so size down if you like a snug fit. 

Does Nurse Yard Have Different Colors & Sizes Of Compression Socks?

Our compression socks for ice hockey are available in a wide range of colors and sizes to stylishly support as many athletes as possible. 

Sizes run from S/M to XXXL in men’s and women’s sizes, and our CORE series styles include the following designs:   

  • Black: black with gray design
  • White: white and gray with light gray toe and heel
  • Blue: blue and gray with white toe and heel
  • Green: green with gray design
  • Orange: orange and gray with black toe and heel
  • Pink: pink and gray with white toe and heel

You can also show support for those in science and medicine with our HERO series, which include: 

  • Scrub Life: white with blue details and teal scrubs print
  • DNA: yellow with multicolored DNA strand print
  • Ambulance: teal with white ambulance print, orange toe, and heel

You can order each style in every size.

How Tight Are Compression Socks for Leg Cramps?

Our compression socks for ice hockey prevent and alleviate leg cramps by delivering graduated pressure from ankle to knee. Compression is highest around the cushioned ankle at 30mmHg to support the joint. 25mmHg of medium pressure hugs the calf muscle to improve circulation, and 20mmHg of light pressure holds the no-slip cuff in place just below the knee.

Our graduated pressure system supports your joints, muscles, and connective tissue and encourages blood flow, which reduces soreness and recovery time after ice hockey practice and during games. 

Where Does Nurse Yard Ship From?

Benefits of Nurse Yard’s Compression Socks for Ice Hockey

When it comes to wear and tear on your legs, ice hockey is a very demanding sport. Between balancing on skates and maneuvering quickly across the ice, there’s a lot of pressure on your lower legs, which can cause swelling and leg cramps as your muscles cool after a game.

Our compression socks prevent cramping and muscle soreness with a specialized design. From wave-knit, graduated compression to cushioned ankles and a no-slip cuff, Nurse Yard compression socks deliver hours of support to keep you playing in comfort.

If you experience leg cramps while playing ice hockey or after games, Nurse Yard’s compression socks are the answer to your problems. Order a pair today, and get a second pair for 70% off!

Does the job

I was pleasantly surprised that they were comfortable first wear and they are comfortable for a full 8 hour shift, though I found them a bit uncomfortable in the seams around the toe box if I work a 12 hour shift. I would love it if they made a full thigh high length in the same weave. Will be purchasing more to have a good rotation of stock. Will

Hi Lisa,

It's great to hear that the Nurse Yard compression socks provided comfort during your 8-hour shifts! However, I understand that you found the toe box seams uncomfortable during longer shifts. Your feedback about wanting a full thigh-high length version of the same weave is valuable, and I'll pass it along. Having a good rotation of stock sounds like a wise plan to ensure you always have comfortable socks on hand.

Work really well

I've recently started walking 3 miles a day, 5x a week and these socks have been wonderful at helping my legs. I was getting horrible cramps in my calves that ointments like tiger balm wasn't helping with relief. I wear these after walking and it helps with recovery without feeling like the circulation is cutting off blood flow. I'm so glad I bought 2 pairs!
