Disadvantaged Tucson Unified School District students are getting a new pep in their step. 

The Educational Enrichment Foundation is hosting their annual spring shoe shopping days.

Select students from TUSD schools are taken to Payless to pick out a new pair of shoes and some socks. 

"These are kids who sometimes only get one new pair of shoes a year," Pam Francis, executive director of the program said. 

In addition to the new socks and shoes, the children get to leave with a big eegee's cookie.
