OK, if you’re like me, you don’t know sneakers. I buy New Balance shoes myself because they’re made in the USA. My buying decision is influenced only by going into the New Balance store and walking around until I find something that looks good to me and that’s about it. But apparently, LeBron shoes are a big deal. (Yes, I know who LeBron is.) So when a young student gave a pair of LeBrons to a classmate who had been picked on because of his shoes, the reaction was priceless.
Like so many stories that get shared on the internet, there isn’t a lot of detail. Apparently this boy was being made fun of because of the condition of his shoes. So the other boy decided to help him deal with the bullies and give him a new pair of shoes at the same time.
The video shows a boy who looks to be maybe eight or nine, who appears to be sitting in a classroom doing school work. Another boy enters with a box behind his back, and says to the first boy:
Since you felt bad yesterday about how everyone was making fun of your shoes…there you go.
He puts the box down on the desk and opens it to reveal the LeBrons. Even though the video isn’t the best, you can’t misinterpret the reaction of the boy, who looks like he has just been given one of the best gifts he has ever received.
Here’s the video via YouTube:
