What's the underground economy? And how do sneakers play a part?

Entrepreneurs make money by solving problems for others.

Meet Chase Reed, a teenage entrepreneur who runs Sneaker Pawn, the first pawnshop that specializes solely in sneakers. He's solving a problem many of his neighbors have to contend with—they cannot secure loans from traditional banks, nor can they save money in banks.

Instead, they're using sneakers as currency!

Find out how, despite his age, Chase is pursuing his own dreams and helping others at the same time!
