As people around the world up their shoe game with every passing day and every passing release, when matching up outfits plain socks no longer seem enough. So a top of the top shoe game is starting to be accompanied by an up there sock game. For our first Feetured Brand story I wanted to throw the spotlight on Stance Socks – I came across their socks on sale on the Packer Shoes website and thought to myself yes I need some of these socks to match up with my kicks, in particular the Ewing ones to match my pair of 33s.
They have a NBA set that features some of the NBA greats such as Dr. J, Hakeem Olajuwon and Larry Bird (please restock the Rodman ones!), an artist line that features designs from a number of select artists, in addition to a performance line and a snow line. So these are for sure not just some NBA print gimmick socks instead Stance offers a wide range of socks and styles to cater for the different tastes of the many different wearers of socks, whether stylers or snowboarders. Check the Uprising pair too.
I was going to describe their vision myself but thought that they have done such a good job of it themselves on their website:
STANCE is dedicated to the spirit of individuality with a design philosophy that believes in expression and function. Expression that creates an emotional visual connection and function that also provides comfort and performance. Building outstanding socks with the best fit and performance characteristics from the highest quality materials is the unspoken priority. The outward facing personality of the brand and our products are the creative and artistic stories that go into every single sock we make.
Unravel the spool of convention and celebrate bold expression with this free-thinking fabric. Send a crystal clear mixed message that’s silently loud and quietly bold. Designed in San Clemente, worn everywhere.
I just love the creativity that goes into these socks and I’m definitely gonna be copping a few pairs to rock this summer, I am also really digging their strapline The Uncommon Thread. Great designs, great vision, great quality product and a story in each sock. The sock has become a canvas really really feeling that. Really into what Stance are doing and an Independent brand too – yes yes.
So please check em out they have socks for the whole crew, women, men and kids to grab a pair and get your sock game up!!!
