Stance Fusion Basketball Socks

Stance Fusion Basketball Socks

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.

Jordan Brand Takes a Classic into the Future

In 1995, the Air Jordan 11 became an instant classic with its high-tech outsole and patent leather upper. The popular dress shoe material made its basketball court debut on Michael Jordan’s feet and the rest was history. The Air Jordan Future Premium looks to do the same in 2014, seamlessly melding high-quality materials and beautiful color blocking that go hand-in-hand with the classic outsole. The result? A pair of sneakers that are as versatile as they are comfortable.

The Jordan Future isn't exactly like the Air Jordan 11, though. Super-light woven tech material replaces the patent leather upper, while a smaller lacing area renders the lifestyle shoes more form-fitting than their basketball counterpart made of leather and nubuck. The outsole, however, remains largely unchanged with the same icy EVA material and carbon fiber shank as the classic.

For NBA players, the summer months are a time to regroup from the grueling 82-game season. Players across the league hit the gym, their preferred pick-up games as well as the film room to try and figure out how to improve upon their performance from the year before.

Between those endeavors and spending time with their families, that is a loaded schedule for any NBA player—but not Russell Westbrook. After making a deep run in the NBA Playoffs with the Oklahoma City Thunder, this summer, the superstar guard has been busy bringing his unique fashion sense to life.

Save Your Ankles With The Point 3 X-Wrap Socks:
point 3 x wrap socks

In case you haven't noticed, the U.S. is fighting through one of the worst winters in nearly twenty years. That means people all over the country are combating the urge to stay in their homes and apartments as much as possible, and are still trying to get some exercise in to fight off extra cold weather weight.
One of our go-to winter activities is playing indoor basketball. When you are trudging through frigid winds and leftover dirty snow, by the time you get to the YMCA or neighborhood gym, your body is stiffer than you'd like it to be—especially your ankles. And very often that can result in nasty twists, rolls and sprains.
Luckily, cutting edge basketball apparel brand, POINT 3, has developed their X-Wrap socks, the world's first basketball socks that provide a base layer of ankle support. X-Wrap socks help prevent needless and nagging ankle injuries that can put an extra strain when you're getting around in the next polar vortex.
We've already written about POINT 3's revolutionary The World's Best Basketball Shorts featuring DRYV Moisture Control panels, and the X-Wrap socks are an even more ingenious addition to athletic apparel. The key to these socks is that they are made with compression bands that stretch around your ankle and arch for support that standard socks just don't have. Also, the 75% wicking polyester fabric keeps your feet dry for even the most epic pick-up sessions. And extra thick cushioning provides additional impact resistance and comfort so there is no lingering soreness in the subzero temperatures once you leave the gym.
In addition to the 75% wicking polyester, the X-Wrap sock is also made from a 23% nylon and 2% spandex blend, which means that each pair forms tightly around the foot for an anatomically correct left/right fit. But while these socks provide the highest level of support on the market, they are still not meant to replace any ankle brace or other support you may require for a game of pick-up.
Just because most of the world is a frozen tundra, doesn't mean that you can't fit in a little indoor run. And if you're going to play ball, why not treat yourself to the best socks on the market. You'll thank us once the game is over.
