Highsnobiety

You ever paid rent off of selling one pair of YEEZY 350s before they became fedoras of the feet? Have you ever been so desperate to cop a hot item you overpaid by hundreds of dollars and named your firstborn after your plug? Well, then you gotta listen to this latest episode of The Dropcast.

Hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon are joined by Round Two co-founder Luke Fracher, and the three former Virginians reminisce over growing up in the DMV before talking about some of the latest drops this week. Then we talk about the future of reselling, and how Round Two addresses a big consumer gap in the resale space—gently worn gear.

Fracher drops knowledge on how Round Two authenticates, why their business model doesn’t work for everyone, and how three friends built a resale empire off the strength of a YouTube series and a strong presence on social media. Follow Luke on IG @oglukemook, and follow Round Two New York @roundtwonewyorkcity. Also peep their highly addictive show on YouTube.

You also get to hear how much some listeners were willing to pay for hot releases, as well as some insane stories on resale deals. As always, call us on THE DROPCAST HOTLINE at 833-HIGHSNOB (833-444-4766) for a chance to end up on a future episode.
