Tell us about those shoes.
A friend got them for me. They’re Giuseppe Zanotti.
Are those crystal details?
No. I wouldn’t walk around with crystals on my shoes. I’m not sure what they are, but I like the way they look.
Sounds like you have an an eye for fashion.
Yes! It is something I am very interested in. I would like to do something with fashion after football. When it comes to clothes and style, I always like to get my two cents in.
Where do you prefer to shop?
I go to Saks a lot. I also go to Got Sole? for shoes.
Which teammate is the most fashionable?
Greg Toler. He’s new to the team, but you can just tell when someone’s got style. And Reggie Wayne has style, as well.
Did you follow New York Fashion Week?
Yeah! My friend actually had tickets for it. The problem was that I was in season, so I couldn’t go.
