Sock-Gate Solved

When the Islanders introduced the vintage alternate uniform system in November, something was amiss. As you can see in the picture to the left, there was a manufacturing mistake with the socks – a blue gap in the stripes on the back of the leg.

Rebook originally told the NYI that replacement socks wouldn’t be ready until the start of the next season. And in the grand scheme of things, not the end of the world. Just annoying.

But the team got word a short time ago from Rebook that the soc
ks were ahead of schedule. Delivery date was this weekend and you can see below, the problem was fixed for today’s game versus Phoenix and all is right in the uniform world again.
