You don’t have to be a sneakerhead to appreciate the video you’re about to see.
In the clip above, a young student gives a fresh pair of Nike LeBron sneakers to a fellow classmate who had apparently been teased over his kicks.
“Here you go, I gave you a pair of shoes,” the youthful good Samaritan said. “Since you felt bad yesterday about how everyone was making fun of your shoes, there you go.” The two friends then share a hug to cap off the touching moment.
In the post’s comments, a woman claiming to be the boy’s son chimed in. “He came home so upset that the kids at school wouldn’t stop picking on this kid for his shoes, he begged me to get him shoes. Begged. I could barely buy him shoes but I had extra money that week so we got him shoes and he brought them in for him the next day,” she wrote.
A similar act of kindness went down late last year, when a high schooler from North Carolina gifted a pair of “Concord” Jordan XI Lowsto a classmate who had been bullied for wearing beat up kicks.
It’s dope to see that today’s youth are so willing to help out those who are less fortunate, and this is one sneaker trend that we can definitely get behind.
