Marshawn Lynch: Shoe Kid Gets Free $2,000 Pair ... 'Inspiring Story'

EXCLUSIVE

Marshawn 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.
