Kid Gifts Brand New Pair Of Nike Shoes To Classmate Who Was Made Fun Of For His Shoes
November 18, 2015
There was a look of shock, a long pause and then a big bear hug full of gratitude and joy when a young boy handed over a new pair of shoes to a bullied classmate.
"OK that was a grown up move," wrote Miguel Marquize Howell in the caption to the clip. "Kid was getting bullied and ragged on about his shoes ... so another student bought him some LeBron’s [Nike shoes] the next day."

"Here you go," the kid says in the video. "I gave you a pair of shoes. Since you felt bad yesterday about how everyone was making fun of your shoes, there you go."
In the Facebook post's comments, Rachele Pizzuti, who claims to be the boy's mother, explained how the act of kindness happened:
"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."
The boy's thoughtful act has earned him plenty of praise this week on social media. Even LeBron James chimed in with words of commendation.
"You're going to great places kid for your generosity towards him," the NBA star wrote on Instagram. "True leadership right there!"
