MCLEANSVILLE, N.C. — A North Carolina high school student is being noticed for his act of kindness after after he noticed a classmate was being teased about his old shoes, according to WGHP.
So, Yaovi Mawuli decided to help — and brought him a pair of “Concord” Air Jordan 11 lows.
He just wanted to “help a brother out.”
“I could not live with the fact that such a cool guy would be made fun of in this way,” Yaovi told nicekicks.com. “I remember I got made fun of for wearing some shoes that had 2006 on them while we were in year 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.”
