24 Karat Gold Socks

The American made mid-calf sock was constructed with superfine merino wool measuring 16.5 microns. Nylon spandex was added to create a subtly raised textural effect. Pebble black, the color of the wool continues the textured theme with a grainy, overcast appearance, while a gram of gold was woven to create texture not normally found in knitwear.

Keeping with the spirit of our brand, we are donating 10% of the proceeds to the Atlanta Children’s Shelter to assist with Holiday essentials. For more information on the Atlanta Children's Shelter, please visit www.acsatl.org/.

7-On-7 Football Camp

This July, YHS teamed up with KaBoom, Cosentino's Price Chopper, KC United, the Della Lamb /Trey Hobson Youth Skills Camp,Wings Lovers USA, and NFL Athletes to show kids how to train like the Pros.   

Kids at the camp got the chance to interact, have fun, receive autographs, learn the basics from professional athletes, and play a little 7 on 7 with NFL players as their quarterbacks. The camp was for grades 2nd through 8th and was held at Shawnee Mission East High School on July 18th in Kansas City, Missouri.

The camp featured Sanders Commings (Kansas City Chiefs), Junior Hemingway (Kansas City Chiefs), Chris Harris, Jr. ( Denver Broncos), and Trey Hobson (former Mizzou Defensive Back).

From the pictures below, it’s apparent the kids got that work in. #PlayMatters
