apparently the sock-esque protuberance is a "calf-length compression sleeve" that i guess is built into these shoes

Wouldn't that cause more knee injuries / wear+tear?

Jenny Ondioleeene (Leee), Tuesday, 12 April 2016 21:30 (three years ago) Permalink

not sure why it would? just socks more or less.

Better Pau Gasol (Spottie), Tuesday, 12 April 2016 21:32 (three years ago) Permalink

I remember reading somewhere that the more you immobilize the ankles, the more stress goes into the knees. So if they're just compression socks, maybe not?

Jenny Ondioleeene (Leee), Tuesday, 12 April 2016 21:38 (three years ago) Permalink

this is going to end with players in full body compression iron man/ greenscreen suits up to their necks and in 2023 some young hotshot will start covering his head and then THAT'S gonna be a thing
