Sometimes, the price paid for a pair of shoes is more than money.

Trakaim and Luis are best friends who love sneakers. When they spot the new Air Jordans in the window of the Dr. Jays on Fordham Road their friendship turns into a rivalry when they make a bet on who will be the first to have the new kicks.
