Stance is honoured to announce the addition of Jimmy Chin to their Punks and Poets roster, the brands’ ambassador collective that unites a diverse community of creative originals from around the world.
“There’s no more qualified person on earth to steer the Stance Adventure program. He’s done it all, often while holding a camera. He’s our spirit animal” - Java Fernandez, Stance Marketing Director
All mountain multi-taskman, Jimmy Chin is a celebrated photographer, filmmaker, and mountain sports athlete. He was part of the first American team to ski off the summit of Mount Everest and can claim a laundry list of first ascents in just about every corner of the earth. He’s directed award winning films and, whether behind or in front of the lens, has tattooed the covers of the biggest publications in the world.
In 2015 Jimmy’s documentary, Meru, inspired the outdoor community and beyond. Meru won the Audience Award at Sundance Film Festival, and was on the Oscar’s shortlist for Best Documentary.
Jimmy Chin is the new face of Stance’s Adventure category – a 3-tiered collection of performance outdoor, hiking, and trekking socks that can take you from daily use to the pinnacle of your ambitions.
Stance’s Adventure socks retail from £15.99-21.99 and are available from exceptional retail locations throughout Europe. For more information on Jimmy, visit stance.com, follow Stance’s Instagram at @stanceeurope, or follow him at @jimmychin to stay up-to-date on his latest expeditions.
Embracing “The Uncommon Thread” as its mantra, Stance turned one of the world’s most boring accessories into its most exciting in less than five years. Stance’s founders saw a category that had been ignored, taken for granted, looked over, dismissed. By breathing life into something that had been overlooked, Stance ignited a movement of art and self-expression that has drawn athletes, performers and iconic cultural influencers to the brand – a group they call the Punks & Poets. And by underpinning its creative roots with a relentless focus on technical innovation, Stance is now found in over 60 countries on the feet of those who dare to be different.
