STANCE Socks: My Favorite Workout Attire

“If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you do good. If you do good, you are successful.”

- Kevin Hart

I read this quote in one of the Men’s Health Magazines I steal from my dad from time to time and it stuck with me. As much as I’d like to say that looks and clothes are not important to me or something I think about in preparing for a workout, the truth is I prefer to look good while I workout. It gives me more confidence, and with the confidence comes more energy and I feel  more prepared to push myself to new levels of fitness. Nothing in my closet makes me feel cooler than my collection of STANCE Socks.

While I tend to favor solid color tops with darker solid color bottoms, these socks allow my personality to Shine. I feel so cool in these socks, which come in a variety of colors and patterns. Basketball, Baseball, Crosstraining or Running, STANCE is leading the way in stylish sock ware that is also built for performance and comfort suitable for just about any athlete’s foot.

My favorite type of STANCE Socks are their running socks. These ankle high socks have just enough compression to mold to my feet, giving me a sense of security. The lightweight, anti sweat and odor material feels really good even 7 miles into a long run. These are my go to socks for hot Texas summer runs because they stay dry so well despite the countless miles I log during marathon training.

Here’s the catch, these socks are not cheap. The price for a STANCE sock is $12-20 per pair. On averag, these prices are the highest for athletic socks that I’ve personally experienced. With that said, I can personally attest to the quality. I’ve been wearing these socks for years, put them through hundreds of miles of running and countless training sessions, and yet there have been no holes or any noticeable wear and tear. I definitely recommend these socks for the avid athlete.

Whether or not you give these socks a try, workout gear has evolved so much in quality and style. Gone are the days when most of society used their old worn out cotton T Shirts and cheap mesh shorts for work outs. Athletic clothing is being worn in and outside of the gym because of the comfort and style associated with being fit.

But looking good and feeling good can get expensive when looking for athletic clothing. It’s easy to drop $100 or more on one of the latest Nike outfits.  Yes these socks are some of the most expensive on the market, but it’s still one of the cheapest ways to elevate your workout gear.
