Football Pro, David Hunt, mentioned that he’d discovered a way to hold his shin-pads and socks up in complete comfort – people wanted to know his secret!
So, after some light persuasion, Hunty’s decided to share this secret with us mere mortals!
Since my last column I’ve had many people asking how and why I wear ankle socks instead of normal match socks. So, I’m going to tell - and also show you – how I do it.
Here you’ll find football boots, shin pads, Nike socks, cut off match socks and underwrap.
My routine is the same every match, first on is my Nike ankle socks.
Then I get my shin pads on and start to put the underwrap around it.
Once I™ve finished wrapping my shin pad it should look like this:
Then I get my cut off match sock and start to put it on.
I then make sure the sock is even at the bottom and that you can’t see the underwrap hanging.
And this is how it should look – Personally, I find it extremely comfortable and like how it looks!
Everyone’s different, try experimenting with methods and see which suits you. I hope this has helped those people that wanted to know how I did it!
Until next time!
Thanks to Hunty for giving us that pro-tip! What do you think of Hunty’s method – will you be giving it a try?
If you d0 – let us know how it goes!
