Stance -Uncommon Styles Afoot

The action sports world runs on functionality and style, yet in the sock department we’ve long been prisoners to those tired old tube-socks.  In just 2 years Stance has reinvented street socks with modern art, technology, and by assembling a core collection of action sports icons young and old.

From Duane “The Master of Disaster” Peters to Lizard King to 4th generation ripper Greyson Fletcher, Team Stance is a wrecking crew of unparalleled skate talent and personalities. They hit the road to test their signature socks with features like gripper cushion sole padding enabling the boys to even skate the pool without shoes (4:30). Enjoy the antics…

The Stance Surf Team is equally radical, turning skate expression into surf progression. Led by World Title contender John John Florence, radical designs and outlines were contributed by the next generation of these underground idols and anti-heroes.

Stance socks feature:
+ Moisture and Odor Controlling Mesh vents
+ Russ Pope Paintings
+ Left Right specific toe shape (ON performance styles)
+ Gripper cushion pads, locking foot in place
+ Elastic arch support
+ Seamless toe closure
+ Deep heel pocket
+ Self adjusting welt cuff
+ Signature Team Rider Logo

Launching in the summer of 2009 KR began making high quality, performance-driven surfing fins with a collaboration of team riders, shapers, and manufacturing elites. After comprehensive R&D and hours of testing out in the field, these fins aren’t just endorsed by their riders, but they are the actual fins ridden in competition and free surf sessions the world over.

 

Kinetik has a healthy assortment of templates to fit a variety of styles and surfers. From the Occy’s power-surfing to Dusty’s above the lip approach, you’ll find a set to take your surfing to the next level. The best part is that all KR fins come in single and twin tab versions so they will fit both Futures and FCS fin boxes.
