    most players wear two socks to keep from getting blisters on there toes.(and its more comfortable).

    First, 2 pairs of sock make good cushioning, also if you were 2 pairs of socks you have less of a chance of blisters. If your shoes are too big the extra sock makes them fit better.

    I don't know about the whole 2 pairs of socks things, but a lot of people wear a compression brace to protect weak ankles that kinda look like socks.
