“Today’s a very special day for me, and these kicks are very special to me,” the Cleveland Cavaliers player, 28, captioned an Instagram post showing off the colorful shoes with three photos.
The NBA player, who shares 11-month old True and 2-year-old Prince with his exes Khloé Kardashian and Jordan Craig, respectively, had his babies’ names on the toes. True was written on the right foot and Prince on the left.
The personalized sneakers also featured Thompson’s little brother’s name, and he opened up about the reason for this on Instagram earlier that day.
“Today is Purple Day!” he captioned photos with his younger sibling, Amari. “It’s a day we can all come together to grow as much awareness as possible for people living with epilepsy and to end the stigma. I’m grateful that I can help my little brother Amari, as well as thousands of other people through the Amari Thompson Fund and @EpilepsyToronto.”
“Tristan isn’t too worried about not seeing True, or Khloé establishing new rules when it comes to coparenting,” the insider said.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star elaborated on this point on Twitter earlier this month. “He is a good dad to her,” the Strong Looks Better Naked author wrote on March 16. “My sweet and special baby True will NEVER be put in the middle of him and I. I can promise that.”
