The parents' guide to what's in this movie.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Sneakerheads is a comedy about a couple of friends trying to get rich quick via their obsessive knowledge of sneaker culture. The characters come up with schemes to obtain specific pairs of shoes and flip them for a profit. Consumerism is front and center here: sneaker brands and styles are shown and name-checked throughout each episode and plenty of other product placement shows up as well. Characters use profanity consistently, including "f--k" and "s--t." Though funny money-making schemes make up most of the plot, Sneakerheads is essentially about learning to make responsible decisions for oneself and family.

What's the story?
SNEAKERHEADS finds Devin (Allen Maldanado), a sneaker-obsessed stay-at-home dad, sneaking off to buy a new pair. He runs into an old friend, Bobby (Andrew Bachelor), who convinces him to make an investment he can't afford. The two quickly find themselves involved in the underground sneaker trade, eventually teaming up with the connected Nori (Jearnest Corchado) and novice Stuey (Matthew Josten) to track down a rare set of kicks that might not even exist.
Is it any good?
The world of sneaker culture is full of drama and the perfect setting for a heist-type sitcom set-up, but the material here doesn't ever really live up to the promising premise. Just about every joke has been recycled and reused since the dawn of the Air Jordans in the 1980s. But the cast is charming, no matter how well worn the jokes feel, and the characters' schemes keep things from standing in one place for too long, making for fleet entertainment -- but Sneakerheads is nothing to get obsessed over.
