Steve Sullivan, Masterson Award winner with over 1,000 NHL games, is one of the Swiftwick’s Cut-Resistant Hockey Sock’s first fans.

Swiftwick, a leading producer of athletic compression socks, is expanding its reach on the ice. This hockey season the Swiftwick Cut-Resistant Hockey Sock will be worn by players on more than a dozen National Hockey League teams such as the New York Rangers, Toronto Maple Leafs and Los Angeles Kings, as well as several AHL, CHL and collegiate teams.

"As a team we have made these socks mandatory,” says Adam Sheehan, head equipment manager for Penn State University’s hockey team. “It’s an issue of keeping our players as safe as possible while they’re on the ice. The players love the feel of the Swiftwick Cut-Resistant Hockey Socks and we look forward to continuing to use them in the future.”

The Cut-Resistant Hockey Sock delivers superior cut and impact resistance against potentially devastating Achilles tendon injuries. Many players think cut-resistant socks inhibit play, but the Swiftwick Cut-Resistant Hockey Sock boasts the ability to protect without impeding performance. Because of this, it’s grown in popularity amongst players and equipment managers.

“These socks are being worn by some of the best teams and players in the world and we’re incredibly excited about it,” says Mark Cleveland, Swiftwick's co-founder and CEO. “No other sock on the market has ever combined cut-resistance, moisture wicking and compression in a way that also provides comfort to the player. It’s the technology behind the sock that makes it one that players really want to wear.”

To create the sock, Swiftwick uses an ultra-high modulus composite yarn based on state-of-the-art cut and ballistic-resistant fiber technologies. The end result is a sock comparable in strength to the materials used in bullet-proof vests. Equipment managers are touting the product not only for its cut-resistant qualities, but also for its performance.

"We could not be happier with the Swiftwick Cut-Resistant Hockey Socks,” says Josh Penn, ice hockey equipment manager for the University of Massachusetts. “The performance and comfort are unmatched. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a performance hockey sock. The fact that it is cut-resistant is a bonus."
