The Detroit Pistons are set to wear some special edition Ben Wallace socks to celebrate his jersey retirement on Saturday against the Golden State Warriors. The Detroit Pistons Twitter account sent out this tweet that showed them off:
Look at these sweet Ben Wallace @stancehoops socks our guys will wear tomorrow night! #FearTheFro #DetroitStyle pic.twitter.com/ynIuJKLHB7— Detroit Pistons (@DetroitPistons) January 15, 2016
This is one of the awesome things about the NBA partnering with Stance Socks during the offseason. They are known for their creative sock designs, and the fact that they designed these and the players are allowed to wear them during the game is something I didn't think I would ever see. I am a big fan of crazy sock designs like these as I own a pair of the Andre Drummond Penguin socks, and I plan on picking up a pair of these when they become available.
According to Stance, there is a limited supply available now, but I'm sure there will be more in the future. What better way to celebrate one of the Pistons' best than with an awesome pair of socks!
In honor of Ben Wallace, the Pistons wear these tomorrow. V limited amount available now: https://t.co/v7yppBgT8r pic.twitter.com/HIcPzCdaE9— Stance Hoops (@stancehoops) January 15, 2016
What are your thoughts DBB? Do you like these or do you think they look tacky?
