DeSean Jackson Shoes, Caution Cleats

Washington Redskins wide receiver, DeSean Jackson will wear custom shoes on Sunday, October 2, 2016.  The Skins play the Cleveland Browns and Jackson will be wearing "Caution" cleats to protest police killings of African Americans.  The cleats have yellow caution tape on them and were designed by SolesBySir, whose real name is Marcus Rivera.

DeSean wearing the shoes will definitely lead fans to share their opinions on police brutality.  San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick's refusal to stand for the national anthem has been the most debated incident of the 2016 NFL season.  While there are some that agree with Colin's actions there are others that think he's out of line.

DeSean made it clear that he doesn't want to group all police officers as racist nor do Black Lives Matter.  The NFL star wants his shoes to stand alone as his personal way of shedding light on the issue.  That's exactly what they'll do thanks to the bright yellow "Caution" tape on them.

The tape symbolizes one of the most vivid memories after an innocent life is lost.  After the damage is done, the tape is used as a barrier, protecting the scene of the murder.  Hopefully they'll motivate officers to use their best judgement before deciding to take a person's life.
