Highsnobiety

On this episode of The Dropcast, hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon are joined by the B.STROY guys, Brick Owens and Duey Catorze. Not sure if those are their real names, but they sound cool so we’ll allow it.

This week’s quick hits are sneaker-heavy, starting with the missed opportunities known as the latest Nike SB x Supreme collabs. We of course plug our latest New Balance 577 kicks (sorry they’re sold out), and discuss why Skepta’s Nike Shox sneakers are some of the best footwear to release ever since humans discovered how feet work.

We also touch on a recent article by contributor Jon Moy on the growing similarities between fast food and streetwear, made all the more apparent with the ruckus around the Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich. Then we get to talking about the history of B.STROY, how Atlanta can improve as a city, and then address the QOTW.

This week, Dropcast listeners weigh on on the question: What’s the hottest sneaker collab of the year so far? There are no wrong answers (just kidding), but see who we agree with and who gets absolutely roasted on the pod. And for a chance to end up in a future episode, peep the Highsnobiety Instagram every Monday for the latest Question of the Week, then leave us a voicemail on The Dropcast Hotline at 833-HIGHSNOB (444-4766). We’ll see y’all next week.
