Hockey Socks Take 2

Oh shit! In my previous post I pointed out the socks as being one of the nice features of the new uniform. Except I didn't do my homework properly. I only saw a picture of the front of the socks with the traditional horizontal stripes. To my horror, I finally saw an image of the back of the socks and it seems somebody was influenced by old Houston Astro's uni's and the movie Tron when they designed these.
They are straight up awful. Why break up the stripes? Were you going for an action figure look?

On a more positive note, here's a closer look at the numbering and lettering which I absolutely love. They actually look a little like Team Canada jerseys from behind.
