After appearing on The Dropcast to explain how to run an independent brand, John Geiger returns to take part in Cop or Drop, as the designer tells us whether he'd purchase or pass on some of the hottest trending items. A tastemaker in his own right, Geiger has transitioned from pro athlete business manager, to sneaker customizer, to independent brand builder. You may know him for his "Misplaced Checks" Air Force 1s, which ultimately led him to launch his own sneaker label.

Admittedly, the most flex-worthy cop Geiger has made is a Los Angeles factory. Here, however, he decides to cop or drop an $18 million Bugatti La Voiture Noire, the NEIGHBORHOOD x Helinox camping tent, Nintendo's first VR cardboard headset, Tom Sachs' $2,000 Shop Chair, a Saint Laurent cigarette case, Supreme Band-Aids, ALYX leather snake pants, Prada's padded nylon beanie, and a pepperoni pizza slice candy. John insists that he's "good with his money," so it should come as little surprise that he chose to pass on a number of items from the list.

To see what John Geiger would and wouldn't drop a check on, press play above. After watching the episode, be sure to peep our first installment of Cop or Drop where Chinese hip-hop group Higher Brothers dish on their favorite Louis Vuitton, Nike, and Chanel products.
