Shaq Buys 10 Pairs of Size 18 Shoes for Atlanta Teen Basketball Player Whose Mother Can’t Afford Them

  When Shaquille O’Neal was 18 and trying to get to the prom, his father asked around to find a pair of size 18 penny loafers.

  Bruce Teilhaber, the owner of Friedman’s Shoes in Atlanta, gave the future Hall of Famer a free pair of shoes.

  O’Neal, who grew to size 22, has been buying from him since.

  O’Neal and WGCL’s Sharon Reed surprised Keith and his family at Friedman’s, with O’Neal buying him 10 pairs.

  He hasn’t had a pair of dress shoes in about four or five years because its been hard trying to find the ones that actually fit.
