A Second Chance for Kyle Lowry's Sneakers

posted by Romy Aquino

Remember this guy?
Well that Raptor fan who got Kyle Lowry's sneakers stolen from him in Chicago, got a second chance to get a pair of Lowry's shoes.  This time, there wasn't a random Chicago fan playing the passing lanes to yank them from Toronto fan, Alan Vale.

Via Raptors.com:
Vale, along with his friend Francis, was invited to take in pregame warmups courtside on Monday. He was then taken to the players lounge for what he thought was an interview about his story, only to have Lowry arrive to personally delivered a pair of his shoes.

 

A video clip and a little social media love can go a long way, his story even made The Starters "Worst of the Week" on NBA TV.  Shoutouts to Kyle Lowry for making things right for this Raps fan.
