“No matter what you do in life, always have a perfect bed and a comfortable pair of shoes, because when you’re not in one, you’re in the other.”
This is the credo of Johnny-boy Bailey’s late father, Murray, a man whose passion for life and love for adventure was an inspiration to all. It is also the credo that has haunted Johnny-boy, an overworked and under-enthused lawyer from South Jersey who finds himself trapped in a routine as dull as the black loafers he spends every day in. When Johnny-boy inherits a pair of blue sneakers and a key to a mysterious New York City apartment from his father, he is given a chance to find a new direction for himself and live up to his father’s legacy.
With his best friend, Ace, by his side Johnny-boy slips on the sneakers and the two embark on foot for a journey spanning the state of New Jersey to the Big Apple. It’s a trip that will not only bring them to the brink of friendship, but also give them a chance to rediscover the connections that matter most in this world.
