For three years now, two local El Paso teens have made their mark on the business community, by selling sneakers worth thousands of dollars.

Jamie Frank, 15 and 16-year-old Drew Frank are brothers who not only sell rare sneakers but also donate higher-end sneakers to underprivileged teenagers.

The way they chose to celebrate their three-year anniversary, is by giving back to not only their customers, but to kids in need, as well.

"It's just really nice to see the support from the community," Jamie said.

"It's a great feeling to give back to my hometown," Drew Frank said.

To start the day, the brothers gave out tickets for a raffle.

"We're giving away one pair of Travis Scott Air Forces for retail, a pair of Yeezy 380 Aliens for retail, and a pair of Red Elevens for free," Jamie Frank said.

The brothers tell KFOX14 that they've always had a love for shoes.

"We started when I was in eighth grade and Jamie was in seventh, and we've just been selling rare sneakers and rare clothing to the people of El Paso," Drew Frank said.

For every pair of sneakers bought Saturday and Sunday, the brothers will donate a pair of shoes to a kid in need.

"Every few months, we donate sneakers to less fortunate children. We've done it in El Paso and also all over the world, like in Israel," Drew said.

The donating is done through their Kickpin Foundation. The brothers started it a few years ago when they noticed that too many teenagers had trouble walking to school because of holes in their shoes. So far, they have given away 5,000 pairs of shoes.

"Our hope is to continue to support the community of El Paso," Jamie said.

The brothers said this store has opened up a lot of opportunities for them.

"We have a lot of celebrities that come to Kickpin, and we've met a lot of celebrities through this like Khalid, Kevin Hart, Lil Yachty, Migos and more," Drew said.

The brothers said they're thankful for the support from El Pasoans and people across the world.

"Seeing our hard work and all the support that we've gained over these last three years, it's just a really great feeling to see that," Drew said.
