A platoon in Afghanistan is "very happy" after receiving shoes from Houston Texans' J.J. Watt. 

One soldier tweeted at the football star thanking him.

According to KTRK, the soldier and Watt talked about his shoes on Twitter last month and soon Watt wanted to know the shoe size of every soldier in the unit. 

"Send my best to the rest of the crew, stay safe and know that ll of us over here are thinking about you and thankful for you," tweeted Watt.
