Her Daughter Was Bullied at School For Having Disgusting Shoes. Then This Man Stepped in

My daughter was telling me a girl at school called her shoes “disgusting”. A man chased us down, then this happened… Thank you stranger ;-;


While this lady was on her way back from hospital after getting an EKG holster attached, she was chatting to her daughter about a mean girl at school. The girl had told her daughter that her shoes were ‘disgusting’. In response her mother told her that shoes don’t define a woman and that her actions do.

On the way to the elevator a man ran over and handed the mother this $50 note insisting that she should take it. At first the mother refused but the man insisted saying ‘I have more than enough’. The mother started to cry and thanked him from the bottom of her heart.

She decided she wanted to spend every penny of the money on new shoes for her daughter so she took her to a top notch shop called Nordstroms.

Unfortunately the first member of staff the mother spoke to wouldn’t help her out and judged her for her shoddy appearance and obvious lack of social status. This was very upsetting for the mother who had been through recent financial hardship. She went to the manager who then made things right by giving her daughter the experience she deserved.

She ended up coming out of the store with these new shoes which are apparently all the rage.


Her daughter was over the moon with her new shoes.


After having to see her daughters hurt and upset face as she told her mom the story of the mean girl, seeing her daughter loving her new shoes meant the world to her mother. They were also able to buy some new tights as her daughter had been wearing 2 year old leggins with the legs cut off up until that point.

Here are the ‘disgusting’ shoes the girl was bullied about


It is nice to know that there are people like that man out there in the world. It is just a shame that people do get bullied about being less wealthy than others.
