Stance’s founders, Jeff Kearl (chairman and CEO), John Wilson (President), Aaron Hennings, Ryan Kingman, and Taylor Shupes saw a category that had been ignored, taken for granted, and dismissed. By breathing life into something that had been overlooked, 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 those who dare to be different.
Stance is headquartered in San Clemente, California. As of March 2015, the company Stance had sold over 36 million pairs of socks which has helped fund their expansion into the underwear market. Stance was named the official sock of the NBA and of the MLB.
