Let’s face it, when you’re getting ready to play pick-up basketball with your buddies, the last thing you think about is your socks. Ankle length black socks? Fine. Calf length “high” white socks for that traditional baller look? Yeah, sure; why not?

Now, that may be your current mindset, but Stance Fusion Basketball socks will be sure to change that.

The Stance brand is dedicated to making socks that are completely individual and they hold “a design philosophy that believes in expression and function.” Since 2010, Stance has been creating affordable and wholly unique pairs of socks in a wide variety of colors, patterns and styles. You just have to look at a few of their designs to completely understand the Stance vision.

Over the past year, Stance has developed a firm connection with the NBA and the basketball community at large. First, the company rolled out their NBA Legends and Hardwood socks that feature classic team logos and full representations of iconic NBA players such Larry Bird, Julius Erving, Dominique Wilkins, and the duo of Shaquille O’Neal and Penny Hardaway. Then, this past fall, Stance partnered with current NBA superstar (as well as fashion trend setter) Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat to create a collection of socks “with color and class.” Each design in the collection would fit right at home on the streets of South Beach.

Stance’s latest development is their Fusion series. Stance Fusion socks use Triniti Technology, which combines traction control (thanks to the integrated networks of silicone printed on each sock), premium cushioning and support, as well as moisture management for a sock that matches high fashion as well as cutting edge athletic performance.

Just because these socks are made for games of pick-up ball, doesn’t mean that the design quality is compromised. The Cyrpsis (Mint), Jimenez and Ganado designs are just as creative and innovate as any of Stance’s other offerings. Plus, if you want more of a traditional on-court look, you can’t go wrong with Overtime (White) or Overtime (Black), which update the classic basketball sock look.

You may not think about style when heading out the court now, but after you use Stance Fusion, we’re pretty sure that you’re whole outlook on socks is going to change.

All new Rolex 1908 men’s watch leans into timeless Rolex styling and we can’t get enough of it
You won't stop staring at it, but that has nothing to do with what time it is
The Rolex Perpetual 1908

The world’s most desirable watch brand, Rolex, is paying homage to its long and storied history with a new series of watches. The new Rolex watch takes inspiration from the vintage timepieces that made the luxury brand what it is today. So expect an almost impossibly slim profile, smaller dimensions than modern men’s watches, and large numbers. Another nice vintage touch is the lack of a central seconds hand, with a dedicated sub-dial being used instead.

Rolex’s main inspiration when creating the Perpetual 1908 is the original Oyster Perpetual from 1931. While its 39mm diameter may be a little more petit than the 45+ mm dive watches that have been in vogue over the last few decades, it’s actually somewhat of a compromise. Many classic men’s watches are rocking 34mm or 36mm cases.

We found those iconic Deion Sanders sunglasses, and they’re only $67
Look like Prime, stay winnin' like Prime
Deion Sanders wearing Blenders

There are a lot of things that Deion Sanders is good at: baseball, football, and coaching the latter, for instance. But one that he is excelling at off the field is promotion. Sure, he is a name and a face, and it seems like it would be easy. But when you develop your own sunglasses with a brand like Blenders, you feel the need to promote harder than usual. And now, you can snatch up a pair of these viral sunglasses yourself but don't expect them to show up on your doorstep as fast as they went viral.

Creating a viral sensation
Before his Colorado football team took the field and triumphed over rival Colorado State in a double overtime victory, his entire team showed out with their own pair of Prime 21s, the new collaboration between "Neon" Deion and Blenders sunglasses. Of course, that is never enough, as he gifted big names in sports like Stephen A. Smith (sports TV host) and Dwayne Johnson (former wrestler and football monster himself) a pair of their own to promote to their giant followings. Not to mention, another commentator called him out before the game for wearing glasses in interviews. We're not saying it was orchestrated, but the timing was perfect.

ZENITH Watches DEFY Extreme Carl Cox edition lands September 25, limited to 100 watches, priced at $30,100
There are only 100 pieces AND you get to meet Carl Cox
ZENITH Defy Extreme Carl Cox watch

Luxury watch enthusiasts, mark your calendars! ZENITH is set to release a horological marvel that's bound to send ripples through the world of timekeeping. The DEFY Extreme Carl Cox edition from ZENITH watches, a limited masterpiece, is slated to land on September 25. With only 100 pieces available and priced at a sumptuous $30,100, this timepiece is a tribute to both precision and fashionable aesthetics.
A fusion of craftsmanship: The ZENITH DEFY Extreme Carl Cox Edition
ZENITH's collaboration with Carl Cox, an ambassador for the brand, has given birth to an extraordinary creation. At the heart of this men's watch beats the most rugged and fastest 1/100th of a second chronograph, setting the tempo for accuracy that is second to none. But this watch is not just about attention to detail; it's also a nod to Carl Cox's musical heritage. The design takes cues from his favorite set of turntables, seamlessly blending the worlds of horology and music. The chronograph sub-counters have fine circular ridges that look like vinyl records, and the one at 9 o’clock has a Carl Cox logo on it. The number of sub-counters, three, also reflects Cox’s pioneering three-deck DJing style.

The ZENITH DEFY Extreme Carl Cox edition is a stunning watch that combines the best of both worlds: a classic design with a modern twist. This watch features a 45mm matte microblasted stainless steel and yellow gold case, with a 12-sided yellow gold insert under the bezel and crown guards. This blend of materials exudes a minimalistic and retro-futuristic look; it's a visual masterpiece that will undoubtedly turn heads. The case is water-resistant to 200m and has a screw-down crown for added security. The dial is open-worked, revealing the intricate workings of the El Primero 9004 in-house calibre, a chronometer-certified movement that boasts a dual regulating organ, one for timekeeping and one for the chronograph.
