When Floyd Mayweather walked into an Atlanta shop and bought shoes for everyone

Boxing champ Floyd Mayweather gets super generous when things go his way in the ring.

In 2015, he went on the most epic shoe-buying spree ever, dropping part of the $200 million+ paycheck from his superfight with Manny Pacquiao on some lucky Atlanta ladies.

A well-placed (and well-heeled) source let us know at the time that Mayweather popped into the Christian Louboutin store in Buckhead days after his match-up with Manny and bought red-soled beauties for every woman who happened to walk in. Talk about right place, right time.

A store employee told us at time they “could not disclose” information about the impromptu shopping trip but did note that Mayweather is a regular and much valued customer.

So.. who watched the fight Saturday night?
