Highsnobiety

On this week’s Dropcast, we got a brand new sound effect machine—and you can bet your ass we abuse the hell out of it! Hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon are joined by Nigel Minani and Robbie Russell from the Highsnobiety Berlin office. It’s their first time in New York, and boy are they excited to eat all the things that make Americans fat!

Of course, you can’t visit America without being reminded of cold hard capitalism, an overly negative sentiment fueled by the current political climate, and the sheer amount of available jawns one can cop within a three-block radius. Robbie especially talks about how he blew a bag at Dave’s, the venerable NYC outfitter of workwear and surplus gear. But of all the stuff our Berlin tourist friends copped, one particular item is polarizing: The Tom Sachs x NikeCraft Mars Yard Overshoe.

Part moon boot, part foot condom, it features all of the artful details Sachs is known for, but looks-wise, it’s definitely a space boot. Things get heated as the crew argues over its wearability versus value as an art piece, and Dropcast listeners weigh in with their own spicy takes. As usual, keep those Dropcast Hotline voicemails coming. Each week is a new opportunity to get featured on the podcast. In case you forgot, the toll-free number is 833-HIGHSNOB, that’s 833-444-4766.
