New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham surprised LSU’s football team on Thanksgiving Day.

LSU played a video message from Beckham during the team’s meeting Thursday and the former LSU player surprised the entire team with pairs of his new Air Force One sneakers. And yes, the shoes are in LSU colors.

LSU players got the shoes a day before they were released to the public. They went on sale Friday and have a retail price of $160. Not a bad gift at all.
