LC grad and US Army veteran's business brings him back home

Sam Talkington wears his Spokane pride from head to toe. Especially right around the ankle area. Talkington, a 2006 graduate of Lewis and Clark High School, has joined forces with two fellow University of Washington students in their start-up called Strideline; and after success from coast to coast, he's bringing it home. Strideline designs and sells performance socks that show off their local pride, and they're coming to Spokane just in time for Hoopfest.

Strideline socks are emblazoned with the city's skyline, and the newly unveiled Spokane design features the Monroe Street Bridge, the Pavilion, and the Clock Tower. While they will be available in a wide variety of color combinations, some of the first run will definitely focus on the colors often used by Gonzaga University and Washington State University. Other designs have already proven to be a hit with popular skylines including Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis, New York, and "The Bay."

Talkington himself has participated in Hoopfest for nine years and is thrilled to be offering a product that is such a perfect fit for the athletes who take part in this Spokane-signature event. You can learn more about Strideline on facebook.
