Odell Football Socks

In the NFL, there are rules dictating player dress codes. One such rule is in regards to the players socks and team colors. To abide to the rules, two socks are usually worn in order to get the look, comfort and feel players desire.

In most cases, players wear a regular performance sock with a cut out long sock or leg sleeve covering the upper ankle and calf area that looks like this:

Often seen on athletes like OBJ, these socks are worn "scrunched" one over the other. In fact, because long socks don't usually provide optimal foot comfort like short performance socks, both are combined together to provide the right look and protection.

What are the Socks that NFL Players Wear?

Regular long socks may feel uncomfortable because of their loose fit and tendency to slide down the calf when running. On the other hand, compression leg sleeves may feel too tight and light.

The best solution is a sock specially designed for football like the Nxtrnd XTD Sock. The XTD Sock isn’t tight for compression but the material still feels nice and has the right amount of tightness not to fall down the leg. Ultimately, it is all about comfort and not being restricted when on the field, which is why we recommend an extra-long padded socks like the Nxtrnd XTD Sock.



Why Does OBJ Wear Extra-Long Padded Football Socks

Elite Football Players put their body through high physical stress each and every down of the field. With every snap of the ball, players run at full speed, push out of stance, jump, twist and bend. Being repeated play after play and with little recovery between downs or game time, football players need the help of high socks specifically designed for football.

A pair of well designed football socks will feature additional cushioning in the forefoot and around the ankle making them extremely comfortable and help avoid blisters.

Some socks also provide leg compression around the lower leg part and foot arch to reduce sock movement and help blood flow fight against the effects of gravity. 

How Do Football Socks Increase Performance

The compression aspect of Extra long padded socks helps increase blood flow and supply more oxygen to the muscles. Thus, allowing football players to benefit from enhanced performance when wearing them.

This enhanced performance and increased blood flow leads to less fatigue, increased player production, quicker muscle recovery, decreased muscle soreness and puts them back in action at 100% both in the game and the following games.
