Programming note: Watch the pregame edition of Warriors Outsiders Tuesday night at 6 p.m. PT streaming live on the MyTeams app.

On Friday night, Steph Curry hosted a party at the Fox Theater in Oakland.

The two-time MVP and three-time champion wanted to honor the city -- and the people of Oakland -- for supporting him throughout his 10 years playing for the Golden State Warriors.

On Monday, Bleacher Report dropped a new episode of "Sneaker Shock" -- which gives you a behind-the-scenes look at a special surprise from the event (the full video is below):

Curry "shocked" 250 total kids from 11 different high schools around the Bay Area with a pair of his "Curry 6" signature shoes.

"Oakland kind of adopted me as their own. It's my home now and I want to be able to celebrate my journey here," Curry says on the video. "So for us to be able to give back to the next up-and-coming kids who are trying to pursue great things -- and represent Oakland while doing it -- it's a cool opportunity to give them this little surprise.

"Show them that we appreciate their support but also give them some inspirtation to keep working hard, keep pursuing their dreams. It gives them some motivation and confidence to reach their full potential.

"We have an opportunity to tell a lot of great stories about my journey through Oakland and what Oakland means. The creativity and the spirit here in the city -- that's why I wanted to bring the life in the shoe.

"There's just so much authenticity here in the city. They are ride-or-die fans -- celebrate just how special of a place this is."

Oakland is special and so is Steph Curry.
