Post Malone Trades Shoes With a Fan at His Concert in Heartwarming Gesture That’s Gone Viral
This genuine moment meant so much to this fan, and the humble gesture has been appreciated by nearly 4 million viewers.
In a world that sometimes feels dominated by negativity and self-interest, it’s refreshing to come across stories that remind us of the inherent goodness in people.
Especially when that goodness was just rocking out on a stage in front of thousands of people.
Famous artist Post Malone made his way to the audience after a live concert to accept a gift from a fan. An unexpected twist turned this into an unforgettable moment.
Post Malone: Good Rapper, Good Guy
A female fan was holding up a box of shoes to get the 27-year-old rapper’s attention — and it worked!
The fan has purchased a special pair of Converse for the star, but just when it seemed as though Post Malone was about to be gifted, the situation changed completely…
“These are so sick,” he said. “I saw them when I was on stage… so I wanted to make sure I could come and grab them,” Malone said in the video posted on the fan’s TikTok.
He leaned in toward the fan and made direct eye contact so she could see how genuinely appreciative he was.
“You’re a legend,” he said.
The fan seemed absolutely smitten by Malone.
She was clearly excited to meet the star, but she was equally focused and ready to seize the moment to ask Post Malone a very important question.
The Shoe Twist
The fan didn’t just want to gift him, she had something more in mind for this intimate experience with the artist, and he was about to find out what she had in mind.
Malone seemed intrigued by this interaction with the fan. He chatted with her and gave her multiple compliments.
“These are for me? You are fu*kin’ so sick,” he said. “Thank you so very much, that’s so sick.”
That’s when the fan surprised him by making a request.
“You take mine, I take yours,” the female fan said, as she handed Malone a box of new Converse shoes, and waited to see what his reaction would be.
The mega-fan was excited to give Post Malone the shoes she purchased for him, and she wanted the shoes he was wearing, in return.
The artist was visibly surprised for a few moments.
“Oh is that the trade?” he said.
He raised his eyebrows with curiosity as he very quickly mulled this over.
“I didn’t know it was a trade,” he said.
Post Malone immediately bent over and reached down to untie his shoes.
He looked up as he was untying the sneakers that were on his feet, and addressed the fan.
“I’ll have you know… these stink, probably,” he said, as he laughed.
The crowd of fans in the arena roared with excitement.
The famous celebrity then took the actual shoes off his feet. He untied them, picked them up, and handed her the shoes he had worn during his live concert just a few moments earlier.
There Was Just One More Thing…
Post Malone could have refused to take his shoes off his feet. He didn’t need to honor the request. It was a humbling, meaningful moment.
Post Malone handed his personal pair of shoes to this stranger he had never met before.
The fan still had a little bit more in store for the famous artist.
The fan asked the star if he would be able to autograph the shoes. Fans continued to shout in the background, and one aggressive fan tried to shove a paper in front of Post Malone to get his attention.
“Posty- Posty,” the other fan shouted. Post Malone kept his focus and attention on the fan that had traded shoes with him.
Post Malone signed his name onto the shoes without any hesitation whatsoever.
The Final Word
Post Malone is one of the few celebrities that would take the actual shoes off their feet for a fan. He chose to oblige the fan and was a true sport by untying his kicks and handing them off to this virtual stranger.
The fan managed to swap a new pair of Converse shoes in exchange for Post Malone’s personally-worn sneakers, complete with an autograph and video that demonstrates authentication.
The value of the shoes she gifted him was likely under $200.
The value of the shoes she now has in her possession – priceless!
