Earlier this year we revealed an exciting project Yo Sox had been working on with Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar. Together, we created an exclusive capsule sock collection called KP11 and we're excited to share that the line is officially available on our online store.
The California native is known for wearing his socks super high on the baseball diamond, so it was a natural fit for us to collaborate with Pillar. The collection features five different designs each covered with a unique graphic design that was inspired by different facets of Pillar’s life.
There’s a baseball design, which reflects Pillar’s love for all things baseball. The baseballs are even in Blue Jays colours and they’re a must-have for all Jay’s fans.
There’s also a camouflage print, which pays homage to Pillar’s Cal State college baseball team where he became the school’s all-time batter leader.
There’s a striped pair, which represents the natural beauty of Pillar’s native home of California. The colouring in this pair draws inspiration from the surrounding landscapes in Cali.
Anyone that’s a fan of Pillar will know that his nickname is Superman because of his spectacular diving catches, so we had to create a KP Superman design to represent his alter ego on the field. There’s also a sea to sky design to represent Pillar’s love of skiing and surfing, as well as a rose compass to represent a tattoo Pillar has in honor of his grandfather (not shown below).
So if you’re a fan of Pillar or you know someone who is, these capsule socks are definitely a must-have item.
