It's hard not to envy the Goldston twins: 25 and good-looking, two years ago Ryan and Adam developed sneakers that allow people to jump an additional three and a half inches. Their invention made them rich; so rich they bought matching condos a door apart on one of the top floors of the 54-story Ritz-Carlton Residences at LA Live, the Los Angeles Business Journal reports (sub. req.) (prices undisclosed, but condos at the luxury tower start at $850,000). The sweet irony is that their sneakers were banned by the NBA, and their new condos overlook the Staples Center, home of the Lakers and Clippers. The Goldstons are now developing new shoes that will allow their wearers to run faster. If they take off like their magic jumping sneakers, Ryan tells the LABJ, "We'll move up to the penthouse."
