A mother's gift to her son has TikTok users 'crying'

A mother came up with a creative way to gift her son a pair of Nike sneakers — except they weren’t actually Nike. On Nov. 16, TikTok user @ninimon recorded her mother using a black permanent marker on a pair of sneakers with velcro straps. “Mom, are you serious right now?” the user asks. But the mother, who is seen carefully drawing the Nike logo on the sneakers, is too focused on her work. When the mother’s young son walks into the room, the mother then surprises him with the sneakers. “Come, poverty won’t kill us,” the mother jokingly says to him. “Now, you have Nikes. Put them on, son”. the young boy puts the sneakers on and poses for the camera. The TikTok has since gone viral, receiving nearly 491,000 likes and more than 7,600 comments. “He deserves for all of us to buy him a pair of nikes,” one wrote. “He put them ‘Fikes’ on with a smile of gratitude”
