About Hocsocx

“Necessity is the Mother of Invention"

HOCSOCX were founded by two sports moms, Debbie, a pharmacist and Judy, a pediatric nurse, out of necessity for their daughters who play field hockey and soccer. They found that by wearing Hocsocx under their shin guards and pads, their daughters did not develop shin guard rash and irritation like many of their teammates.  Our specially designed socks added no bulk to the shoe, stayed in place and felt amazing to wear. The girls loved them!  Hocsocx were born!

HOCSOCX made their public debut at the USA Field Hockey Festival in Palm Beach Gardens, FL on Thanksgiving Day 2012! They were a big hit!  Hocsocx have been official suppliers to the USA Women's National Field Hockey team since 2013 and added the USA Men's National team in 2015.

While the original purpose for Hocsocx was Field Hockey socks(Hoc) and Soccer socks (Soc), they have been well received by other sports such as skating and ice hockey. We are now offering girl's, women's, boy's and men's sizes. 

2017 brings exciting new patterns of Hocsocx and an expanding boy's and men's line,. Once you try Hocsocx, you will never, EVER, want to go without the comfortable liner.

Against Rash and Rub with a physical barrier and wicking properties

Hocsocx® are liner socks worn under shin guards and provide very specific benefits. Their special breathable fabric blend is designed specifically as shin guard rash protection. They are exceptionally comfortable, stay in place and are superior to shin guard sleeves because they don't ride up or fall down. For added comfort, the top wide band stays in place without binding. 

Athletes who wear shin guards frequently develop skin irritation resulting in chronic rashes, sometimes known as Shin Guard Rash.Hocsocx® provide a physical barrier that protects skin and significanly aids in rash prevention from shin guards. Our breathable fabric provides wicking properties that keep moisture away from aggravated areas.

As added bonuses, the physical barrier helps avoid buildup of sweat and germs, not only extending the life of the shin guards, but also preventing unpleasant odors.


Light Compression that increases muscular endurance and recovery


Hocsocx® are a high performance sport socx with exceptional protection, comfort and support compression that athletes require. Hocsocx breathable blend of nylon/lycra (spandex).


Clinical trials prove that wearing even mild support before, during and after physical activity improves blood flow to the muscles, increasing the rate at which waste and by-products leave the muscles. The end result is a reduction in muscle fatigue, quicker muscle recovery and increased physical performance.


The incredibly thin, durable Hocsocx design withstands high impact performance, without adding extra bulk in the athletic shoe like other shin guard socks. It performs better than compression sleeves or shin guard sleeves that tend to fall or ride up, or add too much compression.
