J Dilla

Stance continued to find uncommon collaborations with a limited edition sock to honor music producer James Yancey, commonly known as J Dilla. Coming onto the underground hip hop scene in the mid-90’s as a rapper/producer, J Dilla continued his success working with big names such as A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and Common. Stance is honored to have brought you their sock “Donuts”, a celebration of the 10 year anniversary of the iconic album.

With only 1000 units available worldwide, Jay Dee fans hadto move fast to get their hands on a pair. Proceeds of sales went directly to J Dilla’s estate, making this limited edition style a must-have for hip-hop fans around the globe.


Stance welcomes brand collaborations with like-minded visionaries who share our same passion for quality, creativity, and authenticity. The aim within these partnerships is to deliver a unique storytelling experience through positive brand synergy for our shared consumer base. Highlighted below is a curation of previous Stance partnerships that we consider to be among our best. Welcome to The Reserve.
