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

- 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.
