Yaovi noticed a classmate of his was getting made fun of for having shoes that were falling apart, so he went on Facebook and asked a group of local sneaker fans the best way to give him a pair of shoes without embarrassing him.

"I could not leave with the fact that such a cool guy would be made fun of in this way," Yaovi told NiceKicks. "I remember I got made fun of for wearing some shoes that had 2006 on them while we were in years 2008. But nobody knew what I did to get that pair of shoes. I would cut my neighbors lawn and take out her trash and she would give me $20 which I save to buy in order to buy that pair of shoes. So I understand not everyone if fortunate enough to afford new pairs of sneakers."
