Here at Hoops Fiend we like to provide you information on the latest and greatest in the world of basketballs and basketball hoops. Yet, on occasion there appears a basketball related product that is so outrageously cool that we feel compelled to buy the product and try it out for ourselves. One such product that we recently found is the Stance Socks NBA Legends sock collection.
Typically socks are an afterthought when it comes to playing basketball. Everyone seems to have their own preferences on length, whether you like footies, ankle height, shin height, or the old ABA favs, the knee highs. Stance has taken the sock game to a whole new level. Now you will be able to choose what NBA legend (or almost anything else for that matter) you want to sport on your socks at your next pickup game at the playground. Stance has somehow manage to screen print socks and that has opened up a lot of possibilities for helping you create your unique style. Before we get into the different players that are available take a look at my video review with pictures of the socks on my feet.
As you can see from the video these socks fit about shin high and have a snug feel. They are quite comfortable overall and would have no problem wearing them for a game or just out and about. The quality of the sock material also appears to be above average as well. With a price tag currently around $16 per pair I think it is important for you to know that they do fit nicely before running out to make a purchase blindly. Also remember that it appears that these are limited quantity (not sure about this) so if you want a specific player do not wait around. Without further a due here are some of the more notable NBA Legends you can now wear on your feet.
“Pistol” Pete Maravich
Probably my favorite basketball player ever. Ahead of his time with tricks and moves that nobody had even thought possible. Pete Maravich was one of the most unique players ever to step foot on the hardwood.
