“I sat down with her and had someone take a picture of us. I complimented her on her show, but I was overall super nervous and flustered.

He smiled and said, ’You want my new shoes.’ I stumbled over my words, then said, ’Yes, I’m going to buy a pair right now.’ He asked me my size and bought me 2 pairs. One he signed, and he said the other was for me to practice my post moves in. One of the best days of my life.” (Twist83/Reddit)
