STANCE - The Latest Socks from Stance Are Made to Jimmy Chin’s Standards

Jimmy Chin’s feet regularly take him places most only dream of. Whether the renowned photographer is climbing the tallest peaks of the Himalayas or hiking around the Tetons at home, he needs his gear to perform at the highest level — and that starts from the ground up. Which is why Stance tapped Jimmy to help develop a new Adventure line, pairing the brand’s design know-how with Jimmy’s next-level experience for socks with matchless performance.

“I’m always looking for functionality first in my gear,” Chin told Gear Patrol. “It has to perform well under all conditions. Since footwear and feet are so important in the mountains, I need something that feels good, functions well, protects my feet by keeping them dry, wicking moisture and keeping my feet from blistering.”

Stance designer Christian Schrader worked directly with Jimmy to thread the legendary climber-photographer’s profound knowledge and demands into the Adventure line. “Jimmy was great in the sense he came with a few ideas and concepts and then let us run with it,” Schrader said. “He trusted we know socks — would you question him behind a camera or on a big wall? Me neither, and he really trusted us when it came to the collection, execution and the finished product.”
