Chase Reed has a love affair with sneakers. And it is this love affair that propelled him to open Sneaker Pawn, a pawn shop dedicated solely to sneakers in Harlem. The 17 year-old entrepreneur manages the store with the help of his father Troy Reed. As he inspects the sneakers and runs the shop, Chase gives us insight into his desire to make his family proud of him and the crazy costumer scenarios that come up with owning a pawn shop.
