This Sunday, my cleats are dedicated to raising awareness against human trafficking and animal abuse.My life my choice is an organization that fights against human trafficking and provides resources for survivors of exploitation. Show your soft side is an organization that fights against animal cruelty. This year’s cleats are very special to me because they honor two amazing organizations that my wife and I work very closely with. #mycausemycleats Cleats by: @joevdesigns
