Mesmerizing KICKS Trailer: Sneakers Are More Than Shoes

Heading to theaters on September 9 after premiering recently at the Tribeca Film Festival, Kicks is all about teens, life, and a stolen pair of sneakers.

Justin Tipping wrote and directed. Here's more from the official synopsis:

In Justin Tipping's feature debut Kicks, nothing is as simple as it seems. Fifteen-year-old Brandon longs for a pair of the freshest sneakers that money can buy; assuming that merely having them on his feet will help him escape the reality of being poor, neglected by the opposite sex and picked on by everyone -- even his best friends.

Working hard to get them, he soon finds that the titular shoes have instead made him a target after they are promptly snatched by local hood, Flaco. Seemingly the embodiment of menace, Flaco harbors complexities of his own that will be revealed when Brandon goes on a mission to retrieve his stolen sneakers with his two best friends in tow.

The first, mesmerizig trailer debuted at Complex. You can watch it below.
