On this week's episode of The Dropcast, internal protests at adidas addressing the company's racist culture takes center stage. Hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon discuss the article we published earlier this week, outlining the need for an overhaul of how the company treats its Black employees.
But it's not all bad news for the sneaker world, as SNEEZE magazine released a Reebok Club C (an adidas-owned company that certainly isn't faultless either) with all the proceeds going to Black Lives Matter. We also examine some of the better Nike releases this week, how Yelp is making it easier than ever to find Black-owned businesses, and why Philipp Plein is still a fuccboi for his latest BLM shenanigans.
