Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller isn’t shy about making bold fashion statements. On Sunday against the Jaguars, Miller rocked a specially designed pair of Adidas cleats.

The shoes, which resembled an eye-chart test, were worn to raise awareness for Miller’s charity Von’s Vision. Von’s Vision provides eye care and corrective eyeware for low-income Denver children.

Miller was one of dozens of NFL players who wore specially designed cleats Sunday. It was all part of the NFL’s #MyCauseMyCleats social campaign, which allowed players to raise awareness for their charity of choice by rocking special shoes.

Good on the NFL, which has developed a deserved reputation for limiting players’ expression, for doing this. You can donate to Von’s Vision here.
