Golden State Warriors star, Demarcus Cousins was rocking a pair of Meek Mill’s Puma sneakers tonight as the Warriors took on the Washington Wizards here in D.C.
He is showing his solidary by wearing the kicks tonight in support of the cause (fist bump). Meek teamed up with Puma to launch the new Clyde Court #REFORM kicks, where all the proceeds go towards the newly founded Reform Alliance by Meek Mill. It’s mission is to reform the probation and parole system in the U. S.
Everything about the shoe has a special significance. Each color in the shoe means something. The red symbolizes the blood and sacrifice of those who have fought for justice. The black represents the American prison system and the gold represents future victories. See shoe below.
How awesome!! Earlier this week Meek Mill teamed up with Jay Z to launch criminal justice reform organization REFORM. The kicks are available for pre-sale today at http://www.puma.com. Just type in the words ‘Meek Mill’ into the search bar on the website and the shoes pop right up.
Meek Mill says he wants to be the voice for those who are mistreated by the justice system. This is a growing alliance that is garnering major support from other A-list celebs to include Amy Shumer, Ed Norton, Russell Simmons and about 90 others. The Alliance started with the unjust reimprisonment of @MeekMill due to minor technical probation violations.
The two to four year sentence he received sparked a national anger in Nov. 2017, which led to the #FreeMeek movement. This worldwide demonstration ultimately led to his release April 2018. This is when he realized, that although he was fortunate enough to have the legal resources he needed , that he was only one of millions of others who shared the same experience. He and millions of others are now committed to changing mass supervision laws that will have the greatest impact on the largest number of people. We outchea!! Making history yall. It’s a beautiful thang.
