GREENSBORO, N.C. - A North Carolina student showed the true meaning of Christmas this year after noticing that a classmate was in need of a new pair of shoes.
But it was not just any shoes according to WTVR it was a pair of "Concord" Air Jordan 11 lows.
According to WRIC, Yaovi Mawuli said that other kids were teasing his classmate about his worn shoes, so he decided to help him get a new pair of the shoes many will wait in line for. Mawuli asked other "Greensboro Sneakerheads" on Facebook how to go about giving the gift.
He posted "I spotted a kid in my french (sic) class earlier today at school with these (the worn-out shoes) on only because this other guy was making fun of him. So I'm planning on giving him a pair of concord lows (sic), now my question is how do I present it to him without himfeeling like I feel sorry for him?"
Now social media is giving Mawuli shout-outs for coming to the aid of a classmate who is now a friend.
