After his Seattle Seahawks team beat Dallas on Nov. 1, running back Marshawn Lynch stopped at a Dallas-area McDonald’s and was promptly complimented on his shoes by a man mopping the floor.
“I told him I liked his shoes — navy blue Buscemis — and how I wanted to buy a pair and we all started talking,” Terrance Downs told TMZ.
According to the report, Lynch asked the 17-year-old about school and what he aspired to do with his life. Downs said he was into fashion and wanted to own a boutique someday.
Lynch handed him $500.
“If you’re serious about getting those shoes, here’s some money to help you get ’em,” Lynch said, according to Downs. “My job is to continue to see you grow.”
Downs “went out and bought a pair,” TMZ reports. Buscemis retail upwards of $800.
