Christmas cheer: High schooler gives classmate new sneakers

Instead of making fun of his classmate's worn shoes, Yaovi Mawuli surprised him with some new footwear.

GREENSBORO (WRIC) – One North Carolina high school student showed off his sneaker enthusiasm and his Christmas spirit, all in one kind gesture.

Yaovi Mawuli, a high school student from the Greensboro, N.C. area, spotted one of his classmates sporting a pair of less-than-ideal sneakers. Other kids in their French class were making fun of the worn shoes, but Mawuli felt compassion and decided to take action.

Taking to Facebook, he posted to the Greensboro Sneakerheads group for advice on how he should reveal to his classmate his gift of a new pair of popular sneakers.

“I’m planning to give him a pair of Concord lows,” he posted. “Now my question is how do I present it to him without him feeling like I feel sorry for him? I’m just trying to help a brother out.”

Mawuli’s classmate appreciated the fancy footwear and the two even posed for a quick Facebook photo. The teens are now friends, all thanks to a little bit of Christmas cheer.
