This episode of the Dropcast is brought to you by DC Shoes. Founded in 1994 by Ken Block and Damon Way, DC was an early trailblazer in skateboarding, snowboarding, and streetwear. Twenty-five years later, DC continues to push boundaries and collide worlds. Check out DC Shoes Reserve to follow their latest projects and collaborations.

On this week’s episode of The Dropcast, hosts Jian DeLeon and Noah Thomas are joined by skateboarder and Philadelphia’s pride and joy, Jimmy Gorecki. The former pro skated for Pharrell’s legendary ICECREAM skate team before moving on to create his own streetwear brand Jimmy Sweatpants. Now, he’s back with a special Kalis OG collection in collaboration with DC Shoes.

First off, the episode begins with talk about Justin Bieber’s newest Instagram post. Beliebers rejoice — Justin promises a new album release before Christmas if his post reaches 20 million likes (2:35).

Things really take off when the cast moves on to Pyer Moss’ upcoming Reebok Experiment 4 Fury Trail shoe, which brings back Kerby Jean-Raymond’s BoF critique and its implications (6:26). Another futuristic shoe on the lineup of drops is Jerry Lorenzo’s Air Fear of God 1 in an Oatmeal colorway (8:27).

This week, Highsnobiety launched the Acne Studios x Russell Westbrook collection which boasts an all acid wash, denim-centric capsule (11:20). The quick hits continue on with the prestigious International Woolmark Prize, which has A-COLD-WALL*, GmbH, BODE, and Richard Malone shortlisted. The finalists are set to present their Merino wool collections in London early next year (12:36).

If you’re listening to this episode of The Dropcast from anywhere besides IKEA, chances are you’ll miss out getting your hands on the goodies dropping today for their collaboration with Virgil Abloh (14:04). Talk of Virgil has Jimmy reminiscing about the Glow in the Dark Tour back in 2008 and the rise in fame of the multi-hyphenate designer, DJ, and entrepreneur (who also supports Jimmy’s newest sneaker with DC Shoes, the JSP-JK1’s). Jimmy talks through his thought process, connection, and approach to creating the shoe as well as details incorporated in the design (19:22).

The Question of the Week (QOTW) asked listeners “What’s your favorite skate park?” and Jimmy responds to voicemails while sharing valuable skate insight. He wraps up the segment by revealing his own favorite skate park and tricks (30:20).

In “What’d You Cop?” Jimmy plugs his other brand, Standard Issue Tees, and talks about his newest cops from Antonio Ciongoli’s 18 East label. (39:20).

Keep your eyes peeled for the next QOTW which will be posted on Highsnobiety’s Instagram, and leave a voicemail on The Dropcast hotline at 833-HIGHSNOB (833-444-4766) for a chance to be featured in a future episode.
