Vic Mensa Gives Away Thousands Of Shoes

Vic Mensa and his SaveMoneySafeLife Foundation gave away thousands of free shoes in the Chicago neighborhood of Englewood.

The event was held in response to local authorities planting a “bait truck” loaded with sneakers in the neighborhood earlier this month to catch people in the act of stealing.

“Last week Chicago Police escorted a ‘bait-truck’ full of shoes through the South Side of Chicago to lure poor people with FREE NIKES,” Mensa tweeted out after the news went viral. “So we’re filling a truck with shoes to give away to those who need it.” The SaveMoneySaveLife Foundations aimed to giveaway 5,000 pairs, and it looks as if their goal was fulfilled as people came out in droves to support their cause.

During Mensa’s “Anti-Bait Truck” event, shoes from brands such as Puma, Adidas, Nike and Converse were given away from trucks, with a portion of the donations coming from “multiple athletes and musicians who asked to remain anonymous,” according to WGN9. Check out photos from the event below.
