Stance Art Series

Whether it’s stringing together a crisp line in a pillow field or hitting a grass gap created by the spring thaw, shredding is about creativity. The socks in our Artist series embody this same spirit, sporting the work of folks like Russ Pope. Thanks to our friends, you can now have a mini art museum in your boots.

Stance Acrylic Series

If you view each pint of plasma you donate as a payment toward a season pass or make your meals from the condiment bar in the lodge, it’s time you met the socks in our Acrylic Series. These babies will keep you warm, dry and looking good – even with a dirtbag budget.

Merino Wool Series

Even though sheep can’t press rails or float backside ones into pow, they do have one thing dialed: wool. In addition to being super soft, merino wool does an excellent job wicking moisture and regulating temperatures. We made these socks so you can rock the benefits of wool without the hassle of shredding with sheep in your boots.

Stance Premium Series

Our premium socks offer a buffet of technical features and fabrics. Whether it’s asymmetrical fits based around the way you ride or fabrics that help maintain toasty temperatures, these rocks provided unsurpassed performance. If you want tomorrow’s technology today, pony up to the premiums.

Stance Women’s Series

Sex. Okay, now that we have your attention it’s time for an anatomy lesson. Compared to men, women tend to have feet that are narrower and have a shorter instep. The female calf muscle also sits lower on the leg. Needless to say, socks must be designed around those differences in order to work best. At Stance, we create a proper fit through function.

Stance Kids Collection

Even though kids are down-sized humans, we don’t downsize the performance of our kids socks. We design them around the proportions of kids’ feet and calves and blend in top-notch technology. Kids can now spend more time worrying about backside airs and book reports and less time worrying about bunched up socks.

Winter Casual Series

After a day of charging, slip into our apres shred socks. These things are comfort-driven for casual living. Whether you party in front of a wood burning stove or at the bar, your feet will thank you.
