NFL star and current Pittsburgh Steeler Plaxico Burress, who once shot himself in the leg with a 9mm pistol (and faced felony weapons charges, and eventually a prison term, as a result), is big on socks. So big that he started his own line of luxury socks. Complete with photos of models wearing striped socks. “An avid collector of luxury socks, Plaxico found himself always looking for the ‘perfect sock,’” the website claims. “Often, he would love the design, but not like the fit. Or he would like the fabric/material, and not like the length.” Plax loves his socks.
