Christmas came a little early for students at Lebron James’s I Promise School in Akron, Ohio.
That is because the future Hall of Famer rewarded the students from his school ( who mostly come from at-risk and poverty-stricken backgrounds), with 800 pairs of his Lebron 16 sneakers. They come in ten different colors, and will undoubtedly save the students’ a fortune, since those shoes cost around $140.00 a pair.
The Lebron James Family Foundation website says the reason for giving the shoes was to get ” Them to keep pushing “.

Lebron “King ” James plans to give back to his people, in a way most black athletes don’t, with his Lebron James family foundation which has partnered with the university of Akron.
The partnership will give full ride scholarships to poor and economically disenfranchised high school students from Lebron’s hometown, of Akron, Ohio.
An estimated 2,300 needy needed students could benefit from the the scholarships, which will be made available to eligible Akron high school graduates by 2021.
