Photos: Check Out DeSean Jackson’s Custom Cleats Honoring George Floyd and #BlackLivesMatter

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson helped to create custom cleats to honor the memory of George Floyd, which he showed off on Instagram Thursday.

The cleats have “0 hours 8 mins 46 sec” on them, which is the amount of time that Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s death resulting in his murder.

Also, on the cleats are the phrases, “No justice. No peace.,” along with “I Can’t Breathe.”

The cleats were created by Marcus Rivero of Soles By Sir.

Jackson explained his reasoning behind creating the cleats.

“I’m making my mark, Regardless of the feedback,” Jackson wrote in the caption. “I’m taking a stance on justice & using my platform to stand for what’s right !!”

Since Floyd’s murder, there have been protests of police brutality and racism in every state and around the world.
