NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A few hundred Metro students got a new set of kicks Wednesday morning thanks to the generosity of Soles for Souls.

The charity group is partnering with Metro Nashville Public Schools to distribute a few thousand pairs of new Sketchers summer shoes.

And this simple gesture of kindness is already having a big effect.

"All morning, the kids have been so appreciative, just big smiles. It's an unexpected gift for the children. And actually, as we're going through this process with volunteers, we're seeing that many of our children need shoes that fit properly. Some of them don't have shoestrings," said Tony Majors, MNPS chief support services officer.

Soles for Souls is partnering with Metro to donate free shoes to students at 50 area schools.
