It’s stories like these that are not only positive but depict that there are many times that sneakers are so much more than leather and rubber.
When 13 year old Shaylynn Hampton of Louisville, Kentucky saw another child getting picked on, she decided to do something about it.
The little boys playing—before he had gotten here—were making fun of his shoes because they were not what you would call designer, Hampton said.
What she decided to was to give the young fella a pair of sneakers-Lebrons to be precise- from her personal collection. She had this to say of the sneaks:
“They were clean and like brand new. I didn’t have anything to use them for.”
