Grandpa Waited 8 Yrs For Light-Up Shoes, Can’t Stop Freaking Out When He Finally Gets Them.

We’ve shared some awesome stories about birthday surprises. From this heartbroken little boy surprised with a new baseball hat, to these sick children receiving incredible birthday cakes, to this young Rolling Stones fan… There are so many great stories out there, and this is one of the best!

Despite the fact that light-up sneakers are normally seen as something for kids, the man in the video below had wanted a pair for 8 years. When his daughter surprises him with a special gift on his birthday, he absolutely freaks out! They are Nike shoes tricked out with lights on the bottom, and the birthday boy cannot get enough.

The video was shared by Evolved Footwear, the brand who created the flashy sneakers. They called the video, “The highlight of our year… Nah, we mean existence!!!” And it’s easy to see why! The Dad’s reaction is absolutely priceless, literally leaping to his feet when he realizes what he has been given. It’s impossible to watch without smiling!

Check out the moment below, and just wait for the moment when he sees his new shoes light up for the first time!
