About the Brand


In 2009, Stance took the 'stance' to reimagine what was once a stagnant staple and transform socks into one of fashion’s most exciting accessories. Their vision of transforming the 'open canvas' that is socks, ignited a worldwide cultural movement that attracted visionary artists, athletes and icons to embrace the positive message of individuality, movement and self-expression.

Through a bold combination of technological innovation, superior comfort and fresh artistic design, Stance socks and active apparel have expanded from their roots in San Clemente, California, to now being found in over 40 countries. Stance socks offer unparalleled comfort and colourful constructions that are built to last. They are Stitched Different.
