If this decade's fashions have taught us anything, it’s that socks can make an outfit. The underrated accessory finally had its street-style moment last year after dominating the runway in 2012 (Prada, Bottega Veneta, Victoria Beckham, Michael Kors—the list goes on) and being championed by Rihanna back in 2010. Now, thanks to Santigold, the accessory’s cool stock just went up again.

And just like that, it's over. After months and months of Playoff games, the Miami Heat have defeated the San Antonio Spurs, clinching the 2013 NBA Finals championship, meaning back-to-back wins for the franchise and stars LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade. Last night was all screams and popping bottles and high fives, but now, as die-hard NBA fans, today brings the cruel reality that we now have to wait until mid-October for the next league game and season. *SIGH* The good news is: just as fashion is growing in popularity amongst the hoops crowd, basketball is also catching on in the fashion world. In an effort to help all our style savvy Spalding fans through the off-season, our latest crop of "Stan Swag" is dedicated to the National Basketball Association.
