How is he breaking tradition if he has done this for years? Shouldn’t it read he is continuing tradition?

He’s breaking tradition in that one of those who had their feet washed was a young Muslim woman.

So yeah, that’s breaking tradition.

It was his tradition as archbishop, but not the usual papal tradition.

This is a youth prison and Francis often went to those places in Buenos Aires. He probably didn’t know that in this prison in Rome, there were only 6 Italians, and the rest of the prisoners were mostly North Africans and mostly Muslim (both male and female).

However, his visit was explained to the prisoners, and they wanted to be there. So who knows...many good things may come of this.
