Here’s the synopsis:

Devin (Allen Maldonado), a former sneakerhead turned stay-at-home dad, gets back in the game only to quickly find himself five G’s in the hole after falling for one of old friend Bobby’s (Andrew Bachelor) get-rich-quick schemes. Desperate to get his money back before his wife finds out he’s fallen off the wagon, Devin enlists the help of a ragtag group of fellow shoe lovers on his global hunt for the elusive “Zeroes,” the holy grail of hard-to-find kicks.


Sneakerheads boasts a hilarious ensemble cast that includes Jearnest Corchado, Matthew Josten, Yaani King Mondschein, Justin Lee, and Aja Evans.
