Pass me the sock

There are many ways you can express yourself with your sock collection. You can really say a lot about your personality and your interest through your socks. With so many different brands and with crazy socks becoming a more popular trend it’s becoming easier to show your personality and add a little flair to your outfit. One of the biggest and easiest things to express is a love of sports.

I love basketball and you can definitely see that through the socks that I wear. One of my first “funky” pairs of socks were black and red socks with the logo of my favorite basketball team, the Miami Heat, on them. Since then I’ve collected many more sports related pairs. A large portion of those sports related socks display clear photos of famous NBA Players. I have socks with players such as Alonzo Mourning, Shaquille O’Neal, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Walton, Julius Erving, Allen Iverson, Klay Thompson and Steph Curry (one pair together), Patrick Ewing, and Shaquille O’Neal & Penny Hardaway (one pair together). These aren’t even necessarily my favorite players. I like them at least somewhat (otherwise I wouldn’t have bought them), but they are mostly a cool way to express my love of basketball. I try to get a new pair like these anytime I can find them. I absolutely love these kind of socks with pictures of the players because they’re so unique. I get comments on them all the time.

These kind of socks are from my favorite sock brand, Stance. Stance has awesome collections for NFL, NBA, MLB fans and for other sports as well. They’re a really great brand and there’s a lot I could say about them but that’s for another time. If you’re a big sports fan and looking to up your sock game I would definitely recommend checking them out. There are also many sports stores that carry Stance, as they are becoming more popular, so keep your eyes open for them.

There are plenty of simpler sporty socks as well. There are plenty of places that sell socks with simply a team’s logo on them. Nice, simple designs are often just enough to express yourself through socks.

If you want to go even simpler you can always just wear the colors of your favorite team. Sometimes it’s hard to find socks that are really specific to your interest, but every team has a set of colors and you can always find socks for them. I’ve done it before even when my collection was very small. It’s very easy to find red and black socks. I would put one color sock on one foot and the other color sock on the other foot.

You don’t have to show love for a specific team either. I also have other pairs of socks that are simply cartoon basketballs or billiard balls for example. These were only $4 at Boscov’s. It is always good to check the clearance section of any clothing store. You can easily find inexpensive, sports related socks there. Remember, the trick to finding cool socks is to always keep your eyes open. You’ll find cool socks to express your interest of sports or any interest, more often than you might think.

  1. It is a really interesting and unique topic that you chose for your passion blog. I liked how you connect your interests with the selection of your socks. Personally, I have never see people wear the socks you displayed posted in this blog, and it looks special. It is also useful that you introduced the ways and the variety of the socks. Besides the reasons you purchase the socks, is there any stories behind your sock? I have never paid much attention on sock, but you definitively makes me think more about getting interesting socks next time. Do you actually wear all the unique socks you have or it is a collection? Good Job!
