With Stance now the official sock of Major League Baseball beginning with the 2017 season, could stripes in baseball be making a comeback? While stirrups and striped socks have already seen a resurgence the last few seasons, their use amongst players and teams have been less than uniform. Often several players on the same team will wear different styled socks, leading to a look than is not team cohesive and just ends up being messy.
Now with Stance leading the way it seems inevitable that the game's hosiery will be the hottest new design trend, so I took this as an opportunity to see if I could create unique designs for all 30 teams that fit within nicely their brand. The socks were styled after striping elements on the team's jersey, their logo, or even their heritage.
