NBA/Roots Of Fight/Starbury

The holidays are coming, and rather than tell you how many shopping days we have left, we’ve decided to do something a little more practical: help you. If you’re anything like us, you are impossible to shop for, and the all-seeing eye of BASKETBALL isn’t all that much of a road map.

That’s where we come in. We’ve asked a few of our favorite DIME contributors to think about the gifts they want to give and/or receive this holiday season, and no this doesn’t include giant TVs or Game Of Thrones box sets. You can find that elsewhere on the UPROXX network. Instead we’re focusing on what we know – hoops – and giving you options for the hoop head in your life (even if that person just so happens to be you).

Without further ado, here’s the DIME holiday gift guide.

Stance Christmas Day Crew Socks


Holiday socks are as much a part of the season as Christmas Vacation or egg nog. And Stance consistently delivers some of the best socks out there (and we’re not just talking about on-court wear). If I had more pairs (but I’m not flush with cash or nearly as influential as the GOAT Lang Whitaker), I’d probably wear them every day with jeans. They’re comfortable, contour to your foot, give support, and do more than you ever thought a sock could do. Plus these are festive as all heck. And there are other options. Your feet deserve to remember the reason for the season too.
