Jason Kelce shared his joy over a viral video that captured the adorable reaction of his
4-year-old daughter, Wyatt, to the pink cleats worn by his teammate, A.J. Brown.
During their podcast, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, the brothers discussed breast cancer awareness month and the significance of the NFL’s efforts to support various charities.
Jason confirmed that October is indeed breast cancer awareness month, and Travis jokingly pointed out that he has been involved in it for his entire career.
Jason Kelce and Travis spoke about how the breast cancer awareness campaign has evolved over the years, expanding beyond pink to support multiple charitable causes.
They highlighted that Brown’s choice of pink cleats was a tribute to the time when breast cancer awareness was represented primarily by the color pink.
The video shared by Kylie, Wyatt’s mother and Jason Kelce’s wife, showcased the little girl’s excitement and fascination with A.J. Brown’s bright pink cleats during an Eagles game.
The viral clip caught the attention of football fans and warmed hearts on social media.
Jason Kelce couldn’t help but smile upon seeing his daughter’s reaction, and Travis praised A.J. Brown’s excellent advertising move, as keeping a child’s attention is a challenging feat.
They discussed how memorable and effective it was for an NFL player to have a child exclaiming, “Pink shoes! Pink shoes!” every time he appeared on screen, including the adults in the audience.
The cleats have been a talking point in the league, as Brown had to change out of the vibrant-colored footwear during the Eagles’ week three game or face a fine and removal from the game.
Brown’s choice of pink cleats was deeply personal, as he wore them to make it easier for his 3-year-old daughter, Jersee, to spot him during games.
He expressed his support for players having the freedom to wear unique cleats to express themselves and their causes on the field.
