Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams posted this picture on his official Instagram account today, announcing that he’s wearing the sneakers in honor of Autism Speaks, “the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.”

Williams’s three-year-old son D.J. was diagnosed with autism in 2010.
