The 2013 Shoe & Gear Review features socks

With the fall season already upon us, it’s time to brush off those lingering grains of sand and remind ourselves how to play in shoes. In this year’s annual shoe and gear review, the VBM staff focused on the game-time essentials: jerseys, shorts, spandex, shoes, and socks. In collecting the newest gear from all your favorite brands, weve determined that sublimated jerseys are here to stay, pinhole mesh detailing is on the rise, and colorful socks are the trendiest way to add a little pop to your uniform.
