In some cases the WOD is of secondary importance to our WOOTD – workout outfit of the day! Our wardrobes and drawers are becoming packed with fitness clothing, workout and training gear.
If you go to any box or competition you can’t help but notice the sock craze sweeping the community. The same goes on social media with all our friends talking about their sock game being on point or tagging their posts and pictures with #upyoursockgame.
So what exactly is your ‘sock game’ and where did it come from?
We all like to look good and when we look good we feel good. This is a great mindset to have, no matter what we are doing and is equally as important in the gym. A positive outlook and good vibes can help get us through the nastiest of WODs or help set a new PR. With this outlook Stance socks have been spreading like wildfire in the Crossfit community.
Stance breathed life into something as mundane as a pair of socks and unwittingly created the sock game. Stance socks are made of combed cotton, polyester, spandex and nylon and are extremely soft. They have collaborated with Rihanna and are also the official sock of the NBA.
Stance are connecting fashion with Crossfit
Stance has fresh new take on style when compared to other sock brands and manufacturers. In Crossfit, many athletes wore plain black or white athletic socks, Stance has completely changed this – now colourful and patterned socks are the new thing and are taking over.
NBA basketball player and Stance brand ambassador Klay Thompson “Stance has found a creative way to make socks a fashion statement, and their unique designs make it fun to show off my personality both on and off the court. Along with the artistic style of the socks, the comfort and performance is extremely high-level.”
Stance has ignited a movement of art and self-expression that has drawn athletes, performers and iconic cultural influencers to the brand – a group called the Punks & Poets. And by underpinning its creative roots with a relentless focus on technical innovation, Stance is now found in over 40 countries on the feet of those who dare to be different.
It is rumoured that they first entered the Crossfit world in a big way when the Progenex athletes were given a few pairs to wear. In the UK and Europe the trend has almost certainly come across from the States with many Crossfitters claiming to be the first person to have worn them in their box.
