On Sunday, Marshawn Lynch stopped by a Dallas McDonald's and found a fellow sneaker admirer in 17-year-old Terrance Downs.
Downs, who according to TMZ was mopping at the time, struck up a conversation with Lynch about his shoes.
"I told him I liked his shoes -- navy blue Buscemis -- and how I wanted to buy a pair and we all started talking," Downs tells TMZ Sports.
Lynch asked him about school and what he wanted to do in life, and Downs told him he's into fashion and wants to own a boutique one day.
Lynch handed him $500 in what's only the latest chapter of Marshawn the Magnanimous.
"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.
