So long Rob Kardashian! Now that you're fat and in a dark space, a tall, lean, more recognizable and liked celebrity has taken your sock idea and run with it. Fellas, you may not be able to take a walk in Dwayne Wade’s shoes, but now you can definitely strut your stuff in a pair of his socks. The 31-year-old Miami Heat guard just teamed up with Stance to create a sock collection featuring bold colors, zany prints, and fresh designs for men with serious style and an aversion to plain black socks.
“We’re very excited to unveil the Wade Collection,” said Jeff Kearl, CEO of Stance. “Dwyane has had an undeniable influence on the NBA and on fashion, and we are thrilled to collaborate with someone that is so passionate about everything that he is involved in. This is one collection that really speaks for itself.”
Added Wade, “Style has always been a personal interest of mine, and I’m excited to be able to express some of my own influences through my collection for Stance. Socks are often overlooked in fashion, but socks have the amazing ability to transform any ensemble into a bold fashion statement that reflects your personality and mood.” Read more about Wade's sock collection launch here: http://live.drjays.com/index.php/2013/11/07/dwayne-wade-designs-a-wacky-sock-collection-with-stance-for-bold-expression/
Robert Kardashian's sock line, Arthur George was already in jeopardy of flopping even without the new competition in the urban sock marketplace.
Back in April, a sales rep from Neiman Marcus had this to say about Robby's line:
"Rob’s socks sold around the Christmas holiday, but since then no one has been really buying them. We actually had to ship a bunch out to other stores because they weren’t moving at all. To be honest, a lot of customers bought them more as a gag gift. At this point it doesn’t look like we’re going order anymore."
Well.... Which socks will you be buying this holiday season? Robs? Wade's? Or will you stick with the Hanes?
