The Uncommon Thread 

Since The Running Works began stocking Stance a fair few months ago they have become my favourite socks. I used to choose between a variety of sock brands depending on what type of running I was doing, which trainers I was going to wear and what the weather was like. I choose to wear Stance now because I find them super comfortable. This is due to the fact they feature a breathable performance mesh, lightweight terry select cushioning, left/right engineered arch support and are reinforced in the toe and heel.I have run in Stance socks for so many months now and have never had any issues. I put this down to the moisture wicking fibres that keep your feet cool and dry. They’re also really durable, I believe this is because they have a 200 needle count stitching and are well padded in the toe and heel. When one of the Stance reps came into work to show us the product he explained that if you put the sock into a foot shape it will stay in that position. This showed that the socks will hold their shape well even after being through the wash a large number of times, there aren’t many socks that do that.

The Fusion Run range of socks is vast and therefore you can find a sock suitable for each run. If I’m hitting the trails I’ll opt for some OTC (over the calf) whereas if I’m heading to run around in circles aka track I’ll put on lightweight tabs. When I’m road running I’ll wear the Crew height, mainly because they are comfortable and due to the massive range of styles/colours they look good. Due to having lots of styles of Stance socks, I have been alternating them and pairing them with various trainers. James Poole and Claudia Schroegel (the founders of Advent Running) and I came up with #STANCEOFF for us to share our favorite sock and trainer combinations on Twitter & Instagram. It has been fun to see everyone’s choices and styles, including the likes of Anton Krupicka & Rickey Gates.

Here’s a few of my #STANCEOFF combinations:
