Steelers WR Plaxico Burress launched his Plaxico Burress Collection of men’s luxury hosiery at a New York nightclub rooftop party on Friday night. Plax looked a little more dapper at the event than he did back when he was packin' a gat at Latin Quarter. The socks will go for $24 a pair.

“I’ve been planning my sock line from behind the scenes for a couple of years; nobody even knew I was doing it,” Plax told the New York Times. “So it’s a lot of hard work that got me to this point.”

What a week for international sock moguls! (No, not you Rob Kardashian). Just days before Plax dropped his new line, rapper Cam'ron showed off some of his new Dipset socks (with his medical marijuana in the picture, of course).


Cam's last socks sold out quickly and are now going for more than $300 for a pair on eBay. Who buys this sh*t? Total rip off of the Stance NBA Legends socks. But who am I to tell you that wearing pink socks with a rapper’s face on 'em ain't cool? I just wear Hanes socks.
