In Colorado, one middle got a visit from an H-town rap icon after being bullied and sent to the hospital.

A middle school student was put in the hospital with a collapsed lung after being stabbed in the hallway over not wearing regular shoes. Kyler Davila is unable to wear “normal” shoes, and has encountered a lot of bullies because of it.

Since the episode, Kyler began a sneaker movement, collecting and donating shoes for other kids that get bullied for the sneakers they wear. Houston emcee Lil Flip was in town and heard about his fan who was doing great things for other kids, but was also getting bullied at school. Flip decided to delay his video shoot and stopped by the hospital to meet Kyler himself.

After getting to know Kyler, the Houston rapper decided to donate shoes to the middle schooler from his own shoe line to help with his movement. The local news reported on the story.

If you’re in the Colorado Springs area and want to help Kyler out, you can drop off pairs of kicks at a collection box at WP Nation at 2509 Platte Place Suite A in Colorado Springs.
