On Thursday, a Texas high school student surprised his coach and teacher with a pair of Air Jordans he's wanted since he was 12 years old.

"This is for you, for always keeping it real with me," Hector Montez said. "You told me sophomore year this was your favorite shoe, and you told me your size, but you don't even remember."

Thomas Walser, whose Twitter bio lists him as a defensive coordinator, was elated. He posted a picture of his new Air Jordan 12 "Taxi":

Walser hugged Montez three times and then put the kicks on.


UPDATE, October 3

If you look up the definition of karma, this story could be the perfect example.

Less than 10 days after Montez gave his teacher theย Air Jordan 12s, the student received a special package.

Nike hooked him up with a brand-new pair of Jordan sneakers. Talk about a feel-good story.
