Brentwood-based Swiftwick today announced its cut-resistant hockey sock is now available for general consumer purchase.
NHL players with the Nashville Predators, Florida Panthers, Phoenix Coyotes and Dallas Stars use the sock.
Swiftwick began developing the sock three years ago to deliver superior cut and impact resistance against potentially devastating Achilles tendon injuries, yet also allows players to perform effectively.
“No other sock on the market has ever combined cut-resistance, moisture wicking and compression,” Mark Cleveland, Swiftwick co-founder and CEO, said in a release. “In addition, these socks do not inhibit performance on the ice. We’re able to manage moisture while providing blood flow benefits and the performance enhancement of compression, without compromising the overall feel of the sock.”
