Stephon Marbury sees a problem with expensive sneakers.
NBA superstar Stephon Marbury made it big as a starting guard for the New York Knicks. But off the court, Stephon keeps the crowds cheering with his Starbury sneakers.

High-priced athletic shoes worn by basketball's biggest names are status symbols for many consumers. But because of their price tags, kids wearing them can become the targets of robbers who want to make a profit from the expensive kicks.

"You see kids that don't know any better," Stephon says. "They know that the shoes cost [a certain] amount, and it's like, 'Okay, well, I'm going to take his sneakers and I'm going to sell them.'"
