A couple of men may have been so desperate to get new gym shoes they were willing to use a gun to get them.

An Elmhurst man went online trying to trade a new pair of Nike Air Jordans for a different size. He was robbed of the shoes at gunpoint.

Police captured the alleged getaway driver, 22-year-old Rodney Payton of Bellwood. He was charged with armed robbery. They have tentatively identified the gunman and are looking for him.
