Every marriage proposal is different, but Chris Green might be the only groom-to-be who refused to put his sneakers at risk when he popped the question.

Earlier this week, sneakers/201708/0921890.html">video footage of the Texas-based personal trainer proposing to girlfriend Liz Craven went viral after Green was seen removing one of his kicks before getting down on one knee. Presumably as friends and family looked on, Green took Craven to a spot near a romantically-lit setting before carefully taking off one of his 2018 Air Jordan 11 Concords and placing a ring on his lady love's finger.

SINGLE DAUGHTER’S HILARIOUS CHRISTMAS CARD GOES VIRAL

Apparently, there were two reasons for the funny ploy. Green, a sneakerhead and owner of Fit Factory Houston, told Yahoo Lifestyle that he took off his shoe to buy some time, as some members of the family were running late en route to the proposal. But he also removed the sneaker because his Jordans were especially valuable: A pair of 2018 Concords retail for $450, and the resale value drops once they’re creased.

In fact, Green says he made another big purchase the same day he got the shoes.

“I got the [engagement] ring at 12 noon and was going to hold it for a little while, [but] maybe around 3 p.m., I said meet me here at 7,” Green said, recalling how he got his shoes, a ring and a bride-to-be all within a few hours. “I got the shoes first and then got the ring.”

The 20-second clip soon went viral on Twitter, with over 24,000 likes and 11,500 retweets pouring in after All Def Digital shared the video. “My man really took his shoe off first to avoid creases. Legendary,” the outlet wrote.

Craven, meanwhile, said that Green’s funny move in no way detracted from “one of the most special days of my life.”

Let me clear my throat... Marriage Proposal- Is an event where one person asks for the others hand in marriage. Not to be taken lightly! While my #proposal has gotten a lot of attention and exposure because Chris pulled off his #jordan11 to prevent a crease. Some understand some may not and that’s fine. I know Chris very well and I know his love for #Jordan’s so when he pulled his sneaker off nothing about my demeanor changed. Lol. Because I know him. While some may call it corny, may not understand, shake their head, or have whatever opinion. I’ve let you have your moment. But i will not let you take away from one of the most special days of my life. I said yes before he even asked me lol. Our relationship has its own rhythm and flow. We do things how we want to. S/N I’m very grown...i normally don’t say much cause i don’t really care. #butjustsoyouknow #ihavemykingmayyoufindyours #queen,wineunderwear
