This Dad’s Reaction to Light-Up Sneakers Is Priceless

There’s nothing like a good birthday surprise. In a now-viral video, a father quite literally jumped for joy after receiving a pair of Nike sneakers he’s wanted for eight years.

In the clip, the man clearly had no idea what would be in the shoe box. Surrounded by family, he slowly opened the gift and pulled out a pair of what seemed to be regular Nike running shoes. To his surprise, the shoes began to light up after he squeezed the heel — thinking it was just cushion.

“Get out of town! What?” he yelped. “You’ve got to be kidding me. No way.” 

“What a dream come true,” he said with a smile, as his family laughed at his ecstatic reaction.

Watch the video below.

The man’s daughter had the light-up Nike Air Max Dynasty shoes custom-made. 

She posted his reaction on Instagram: “This is what happens when you give your dad something he’s wanted for about 8 years, but he always thought they made them just for kids. He was wrong. They make them for big kids too.”
