Police Officers Turn to NBA to Help Find Size-17 Shoes For Homeless Man

A Lawrence, Indiana police officer noticed the shoes on a seven-foot tall homeless man were torn and tattered, but he soon learned it is not easy to find size 17 shoes.

The officer, who wanted to remain anonymous, called up the Indiana Pacers basketball team for back up.

The NBA Pacers found a pair that had been made for former player Roy Hibbert and donated the bright yellow kicks.

When he tried on his new shoes in the Waffle House restaurant where he frequently eats, there was not a dry eye in the place.
