1112_Marshawn-Lynch_boy_gettyMarshawn Lynch‘s generosity is spreading … because the kid who got $500 from Beast Mode just got free $2,000 shoes from a company that also wants to help him become successful. 

The kid at the center of the action is 17-year-old Terrance Downs — who was mopping up at a Dallas McDonald’s when Lynch walked in and they struck up a conversation about Lynch’s Buscemi shoes. 

Downs told Lynch about his plans to start a fashion store — so Lynch gave him $500 so he could buy a pair of his own Buscemis to help get him on his way. 

Now, we’ve learned Rob Heppler — the co-founder of Buscemi — found out about the story and was so moved, he reached out to the kid to help him on his journey. 

In fact, he’s hookin’ the kid up with a pair of the multi-color 100mm kicks — which retail at $1,950 (they’re hand painted with gold plated hardware and real snakeskin leather).


“Marshawn’s goal was to help Terrance grow,” Heppler said … “We felt that having him put his money toward starting his business would help that.”

“Now, he’ll look really sharp when he opens his boutique.”

Talk about having a helluva week.
