Socks hold the shin pads in place and should extend from the ankle to the top of the thigh.
Socks are tucked in the back of the skates & inside the garter belt or velcro fasteners attached to the jock or jill strap.
Using tape or straps above the knee can cause friction and circulation problems if too tight. Care must be taken in this area.
Tape or straps below the knee should secure the sock and underlying shin pad.
