Three years after debuting its initial NBA Legends collection, Stance is excited to announce a new collection of NBA Legends designed by acclaimed artist Todd Francis.
Like all Stance Hoops collection, the TF styles are designed to fit the aesthetic of both hardcore NBA fans and sock enthusiasts.Specifically, Francis, who is best known for his extensive work in the skate world but is an avid follower of the NBA, worked on all of the player illustrations and vivd colors by hand. In doing so, Francis blurred and pushed the boundaries of art, socks and the NBA.
