A quick look at Jermaine Jones' Instagram account confirms that he's a family man. The US international is regularly sharing special moments he spends with his wife and kids, whether they're seeing the Blue Man Group, going to the movies, or just hanging out poolside. Now Jones will carry a constant reminder of those he loves when he's on the field.
The laces are a subtle gesture to his family. It also proves that Jones is committed to winning. To make his family proud, Jones will have to be the hard-working game-changer that he was last season. As the comment that goes along with the image implies, Jones wants to lift the MLS Cup.
Jones is definitely one of the most interesting players in New England Revolution history. However, it's important to look past the quirky interviews and celebrity parties when trying to get to the core of Jones--a person who loves his family and winning. If you ever forget this, just look at the man's shoes.
