A lucky wrestling sock could be the difference between winning and losing. I can still remember my pair of socks that I wore whenever I wrestled in a tournament or a dual meet. My parents had to loads of laundry as soon as we got home from that competition.
In all seriousness, a good pair of socks that can be worn in competition and or at practices is something nice to have. Many of our customers that come into the store collect socks one in particular I remember said he had over a dozen pair of wrestling socks.
If your budget allows, pick up a pair or two of socks every so often. It does not cost much more in shipping to add a couple pairs of socks to your order. Or when you come into our store, pick out a couple pairs to bring home. When we sold at tournaments, there would be some tournaments that our socks were among our top selling wrestling gear.
Next time you are at a wrestling practice or a wrestling tournament, take note of the socks the different wrestlers are wearing. You will likely find a wide selection of socks. Wrestling socks are one of the few pieces of gear you can pick to express yourself on the mat.
In most cases, you can get away with a standard crew or quarter sock, but some customers like to train in a shorter sock or a "no show" length sock.
We stock our socks in a variety of sizes because we know fit matters. And of course, we stock the top brands too including Nike, Under Armour, ASICS and adidas.
