Meek Mill to Wear Shoes Benefiting Criminal Justice Reform on ‘Saturday Night Live’
Meek Mill is on a mission when it comes to criminal justice reform. The Philly rapper recently hooked up with Puma for a new sneaker called the Reform. Proceeds from the shoe will go to benefiting criminal justice reform efforts. The Dreamchasers MC will wear the sneakers during his upcoming performance on Saturday Nighty Live.
Meek is set hit up SNL tonight (Jan. 26). Actor James McAvoy is slated to host. When Meek does hit the stage he will show off the new sneaker collab, reports Page Six. The Golden State Warriors' DeMarcus Cousins debuted the sneakers on court on Thursday (Jan. 24.). A version of the Puma Clyde Court, this particular colorway is called Reform and is inspired by Meek and Olympian Tommie Smith.
The black, charcoal and red sneaker features the phrase, "We had to be seen because we couldn't be heard." The shoe will be available on Feb. 1.
According to Puma, "100% of net proceeds from every pair sold will benefit The Reform Alliance," which is a criminal justice reform organization recently started by Jay-Z and Meek Mill, as well as New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, Nets co-owner Clara Wu Tsai, Third Point LLC founder Daniel S. Loeb, Galaxy Digital founder Michael E. Novogratz and Vista Equity Partners founder Robert F. Smith.
