On this week's episode of The Dropcast, hosts Jian DeLeon and Noah Thomas take a  quick second to talk about the upcoming U.S. election, and the severity of what's at stake. After discussing the nomination of Kamala Harris as Joe Biden's running mate, the conversation shifts to product-oriented fare, starting with sneakers tailor-made for the summer.

There's Aime Leon Dore's crispy New Balance 1300 collab, with a rich green or dusty pink upper on top of a vintage-inspired sole, as well as Eric Emanuel's clean Reebok Club C collaboration, combining a mostly white upper with a pop  of color in the heel tab and inner lining. In style  news, we discuss Virgil Abloh and Walter Van Beirendonck's current beef, Futura's fire CDG collab, and then discuss labels that were truly ahead of their time. Listen to the ep to find out who finally gets their roses.
