Aside from his glove and his invisible cape, the next most important accessory Kevin Pillar wears on the field? It may be his socks.
Pillar is a high-sock guy on the field, and off the field, he continues that foot fashion. This one completely flew under the radar to me, but it turns out Kevin Pillar has his very own line of socks over at Yo Sox.
They’re a Toronto-based company which has come up with six special Kevin Pillar-inspired sock designs. In fact, it’s the Yo Sox “Kevin Pillar Bundle” and each sock has its own significance to the Blue Jays’ centre fielder.
Pillar doesn’t flash his tattoos all that often, but there’s even a Compass design modeled after a tattoo he has in honour of his grandfather. You’ll also notice the Yo Sox interpretation of Pillar’s Superman moniker with the “K” in Pillar’s Superman crew socks.
There’s also an homage to Pillar’s home state, California, with the Mountain and Surf socks. The Striped socks are reminiscent of the California sunset. The Camouflage design in celebration of his alma mater, the Cal State Toros.
