Could Plaxico Burress's key to being known for something other than accidentally shooting himself at a nightclub lie in footwear? The Steelers wide receiver, according to The New York Times is debuting his own line of luxury hosiery.
The line has its own Twitter account (@PlaxicosSocks) and a website (PlaxicoBurressCollection.com) for curious consumers looking to up their own style. The line on display runs between $24-$29 and begins shipping on June 1.
"I've been planning my sock line from behind the scenes for a couple of years; nobody even knew I was doing it," Burress told the newspaper. "So it's a lot of hard work that got me to this point."

If the socks take off, Burress plans to expand his line.
"The ultimate goal is to get into bow ties, cuff links and belts," he told the Times. "Definitely belts. Come on, who doesn't need a great belt?"
