In recent years, players have often been seen entering the field with huge holes in their socks. Many ask why? We specify that it is not a question of fashion, since especially during the World Cup in Qatar there are many. Rather, behind all this is a health aspect.

The holes on the socks are intended to prevent the formation of muscle cramps. Lack of circulation, especially in the calves, could lead to cramps. Sometimes the socks players wear in matches are new, so they feel tight when worn. This can cause blockage of circulation and therefore cramps. In fact, the holes create air, allow the muscle to breathe, relaxing it and avoiding problems for the player.

Some players also have very large calves. For this reason the hole on the socks is even bigger, just to allow the muscle to breathe.

No fashion then, but only a way to prevent muscle problems.
