Few companies have enjoyed a quick, successful ascension like the sock company, Stance. Founded in 2010, the San Clemente-based company prides itself on its superior quality, tangible creativity, unique vision, and uncommon approach—supported by their tagline, “The Uncommon Thread.” Becoming synonymous with the premium sock outfitter, Stance is now the exclusive on-field/court MLB and NBA sock provider.
The world’s best athletes depend on Stance to propel them forward. No, you and I don’t need the same premium grade socks to carryout daily activities, but it’s comforting knowing that the fibers surrounding our feet also helped LeBron James secure Cleveland’s first championship in 52-years. But personally, what makes Stance the coolest sock provider—and the fact that sock companies can actually be cool—is their intricate, creative designs. Some feature abstract patterns; others pay homage to NBA legends; but what’s caught my eye the most is their Hip Hop-inspired lines.
After combing through their 23 pages of Men’s socks (you guys couldn’t have a “Hip Hop” section??), here are their dopest Hip Hop collaborations:
