The Dropcast Episode 7 featured image Nike ikea virgil abloh

This week we aim to answer one question: Are women underserved in the sneaker market? That’s why hosts Jeff Carvalho, Noah Thomas, and Jian DeLeon are joined by sneaker brand consultant Jazerai Allen-Lord and Leah McSweeney, O.G. streetwear head and founder of Married to the Mob, who give great insight into a woman’s perspective on the sneaker industry, as well as the recent news at Nike involving several executives stepping down after an internal survey revealed a company-wide problem of discrimination and mistreatment of female employees.

Meanwhile, Noah talks about his recent trip to Montreal, where he visited the new SSENSE flagship store. The crowd also weighs in on the week’s latest releases, like PLEASURES x KORN, Palace’s new Juergen Teller-lensed lookbook (photographer flex!), and share their thoughts on Virgil Abloh’s “MARKERAD” IKEA collab. Oh right, and Jeff and Jian talk about how much money they spent last week in Japan.
