When I first bought these Nike soccer socks I was just hoping for a decent pair of soccer socks to drape over my shin pads. Initially I thought the R90 price tag was a little high I'll admit but I was most definitely not disappointed with the quality I received. The socks pull quite nicely over your shin pads holding firm but not too tightly the sock itself feels like a welcome extension of your shinpad. Sometimes I even forgot they were actually soccer socks and found myself wearing them as normal socks when my more conventional ones were in the wash. I nice little thing I noticed about the socks were that they just have a little smooth area just about where your ankle starts for people like myself how prefer the addition of ankle tap I thought this was absolutely ingenious. Another great thing about these socks is that they are very easy to wash which surprised me. These are high quality socks that more than justify the R90 price tag. If you are in need of some quality soccer socks or just want some longer socks for winter than look no further than these wonderful socks from Nike.
