THIS JUST IN: STANCE SOCKS ARE THE OFFICIAL SOCKS BRAND FOR THE NBA AND MLB!
Stance has tons of varieties to suit the roving “sporties” out there. But even cooler than that, in May 2016, Stance became the official socks of the Major League Baseball organization. With features like elastic arch bands, self-adjusting cuffs, mesh vents to keep you cool, and reinforced toes and heels for durability, it's no wonder this rising, dependable sock brand is also the official on-court sock of the National Basketball Association.
Upon its official announcement, Stance stated in a press release that it plans to debut the new Fusion Baseball socks during the 2016 All-Star Game on July 12 at the San Diego Convention Center.
“Socks were a forgotten piece of apparel and completely overlooked as a piece of technical equipment,” Taylor Shupe, Stance chief product officer, stated in the release. “There hasn’t been any real innovation in the space despite how important socks actually are in achieving comfort and function to protect the foot. This particular sock is going to open the eyes of a lot of players to what they’ve been missing out on.”
We knew we were on to something when we started stocking Stance at Baggins all those years ago! While it’s not clear yet whether the socks for the pros will be the same as what the public has been enjoying for years, we’re pleased to have MLB teams featured on Stance already.

Gigantes, you ask? It’s the Spanish word for Giants, and the reference first appeared on the team’s jersey in 2005. The Giants were first team in Major League Baseball to translate their name to Spanish and periodically wear it on their jerseys, which started a small trend in the League.
For the basketball fans out there, the Stance National Basketball League Collection, also in store at Baggins, does not disappoint, with plenty of players and teams covered, ranging from the LA Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Utah Jazz, New Jersey Nets, Miami Heat and more.
