"The Christmas Shoes" is a Christmas song that was written by Eddie Carswell and Leonard Ahlstromby, and performed by the Christian group NewSong. The song is said to have been inspired by a chain letter that was passed around in the 90's called: "The Golden Slippers."

YouTuber benfreeze decided to create a short film based around the song for a film class project. In it, the narrator is a man who is out doing some last-minute shopping and he ends up behind a young dirty boy in a line at a shoe store. The boy is attempting to buy a nice pair of shoes for his mother, but he just doesn't have enough money. 

If you have not heard the song before, it is quite a sweet, sentimental one. Check out the video to learn more about the boy's mother and find out if she gets her Christmas gift.
