‘SNL’ Comedian Pete Davidson Remembers His Father With Shoes

Saturday Night Live” funnyman Pete Davidson is best known for making people laugh, but he took a more serious tone on Sept. 11 to honor his late father, a New York City Fire Department firefighter who was killed during the 9/11 attacks.

“One of my dads homies gave me his old dirty ass boots from work and a sick photo of him lookin like a young legend,” Davidson wrote on Instagram.

Davidson is quite a sneaker enthusiast in his own right, and previous Instagram posts have shown the comedian wearing sneakers such as the Nike Mag. He’s also been spotted in the Just Don x Air Jordan 2 and Air Jordan 4.

Davidson was previously featured on the Comedy Central roasts of Justin Bieber and Rob Lowe. The comedian’s first hourlong comedy special, “Pete Davidson: SMD,” will premiere on Oct. 29 at 10 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
