I am a big fan of fun socks. Several years ago, I was at a party wearing plain black tube socks. I noticed some of the other men wearing interesting socks, and realized I was not as fashionable as I thought I was. That day, with the help of my wife, I bought my first pair or “funky” socks. I haven’t looked back since.
The problem with fun socks is that they vary in quality. Sometimes they are too thin or not of good quality and wear out quickly.
One day, however, I was shopping with a friend and he introduced me to Stance socks.
I could instantly tell that the quality of the socks were excellent. The first pair I bought were Christmas themed.
After purchasing a few pairs of Star Wars themed socks I never looked back. I now rarely buy any other brand of sock.
You may be wondering how this post is related to Sports Team Apparel. Stance offers various lines of sports themed socks that bring together two crucial items in my wardrobe: Fun socks and sports team apparel.
This post will talk about Stance as a company, as well as review their various lines of sports themed socks.
Stance was founded in 2009 in San Clemente, California. As of 2015, they have sold over 36 million pairs of socks. They are also the official sock company of MLB and NBA. They offer lines of men’s underwear and T-Shirts, and women’s socks.
One cool thing that Stance offers is a subscription program. This allows you to have 2-4 pairs of socks shipped free of charge to your residence monthly or quarterly. You can either pick the socks yourself, or allow Stance to do it for you based on your chosen preferences. I think this is a great program and innovative idea.
Another cool thing about Stance socks is the variety of thickness, height, and material. A lot of sock companies only make socks out of one material. Stance, however, makes socks of several types of thickness.
If you are purchasing on their website, each item comes with a description of the sock’s thickness, height and material, so you know exactly what you are getting.
MLB Stance Socks
As the official sock of MLB, Stance offers a wide array of sock choices. They offer several lines of MLB socks, including MLB On-Field, Future Legends, Mascots, and women’s socks (Stance also has a line of MLB themed underwear). The Stance MLB page conveniently allows you shop by collection
or by your favorite team, which simplifies the shopping experience based on your preference.
NBA Stance Socks
Much like with MLB, Stance socks are the official sock of the NBA. I feel like Stance could do a better job with their NBA lines, as a large part of their offerings are from an NBA logo line, which features, as the name suggests, the NBA logo.
For example, there are only 3 offerings for the Sacramento Kings, where there are 14 offerings for the Dodgers.That being said, the socks that they do offer are excellent quality with cool designs.
Here are a few the offered designs for the Sacramento Kings (you will likely find similar designs for the other NBA teams):
NFL Stance Socks
Although Stance is not the official provider for NFL socks, they do offer numerous selections of NFL team socks.
For example, Stance offers five selections for the Oakland Raiders, including their Banner, fade and women’s collections.
Here are a few of my favorite from the Oakland Raiders:
College Stance Socks
Stance does offer a line of College Logo socks. Stance, however, only offers socks for about 31 college teams.
Hopefully, your favorite team is one for which Stance offers choices. Fortunately, my favorite college team, BYU, is offered.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of colleges missing, so the odds are not in your favor.
One nice thing Stance offers for college socks is the ability to buy three packs for the offered colleges.
Here are a few of my favorites for BYU:
Areas of improvement
Stance does not appear to have a line of NHL socks or Soccer team socks. I would love to own a pair of Manchester United FC socks made by Stance. Hopefully, this will come true someday.
The other potential drawback for some customers might be the price. Stance socks have a higher price point than other socks, but this is definitely a case of “getting what you pay for.”
In my opinion the quality of the socks makes them worth the money.
Even though their Sports team socks line is not as complete as I would prefer, Sports fans can find great socks from Stance.
This, coupled with Stance’s high quality makes Stance Socks a definite buy for Sports Team apparel fans.
I know I may seem very enthusiastic about these socks, but I can’t mention enough how well made they are.
A lot of reviews online are based on product descriptions, but I wear a Stance socks every day.
I 100 percent stand behind this statement: Stance socks are the best socks I have ever owned.
