This week on The Dropcast, hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon talk about one of the last sneaker stories that until now, hasn't been retold via product. That of course is the Nike Air Ship, Michael Jordan's original on-court shoe, and the one famously “banned” by the NBA. Somehow an Italian boutique finessed its way into re-releasing the classic.

Speaking of sneakers, we asked Dropcast listeners to weigh in on today's kick game. Has it simply become too hard to buy cool sneakers? The resounding answer was yes, from salty voicemails about SNKRS Ws turning to Ls when orders get canceled a week after they're placed, to the endless hustle of raffle after raffle, to ultimately having to pay resale prices or figure out how bots work, it seems too many people are frustrated with the current state of the market. What needs to change? Listen to the episode and find out.
