'Young Hearted Socks' is currently producing a pair of luxurious golden socks that are made from the finest materials available. Although socks are often an afterthought, this essential garment can change the entire look of an outfit. These ultra-luxurious socks are perfect for those who care about every aspect of their wardrobe.

The limited-edition socks are made from 24-karat gold and a type of merino wool called 'Honeycomb.' The mid-calf socks are also infused with spandex to help them stay up. While the socks themselves are soft and breathable, the addition of gold gives the garment a unique texture that is not found in conventional knitwear.

While the golden socks are in high demand, the company only plans on releasing 50 pairs of the luxurious hosiery accessories. Of those sales, 10 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Atlanta Children’s Shelter.
