do some talking
The Ravens aren't playing today, so wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. won't be able to show off his new cleats this month. That's a shame.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and Smith, who has regularly spoken out against domestic violence, custom-ordered a pair of Under Armour shoes inscribed with the words “Break The SILENCE.”
“Enough is ENOUGH,” wrote Soles BySir, the custom cleats' designer, on Instagram. “Thank you to [Smith] who gives me the opportunity to paint cleats like this. It has never, and will never be OK in my eyes, to resort to violence.”
Smith was inactive for the Ravens' game last Sunday against the New York Jets but has been active on social media recently, commenting on domestic violence in light of Giants kicker Josh Brown's admission that he physically abused his wife.
“You know what if, your ex-wife was my daughter, yo [butt] would be on [injured reserve] ... what a shame NFL acts like it cares,” he wrote on the Sqor Sports social media network.
