On this week's episode of The Dropcast, hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon discuss everything from crepe-sole wrapped Hender Scheme sneakers to the influence of late Japanese designer Kansai Yamamoto. We also touch on some of the biggest reveals of the week — namely the Union x Jordan 4 leak and the news that Mercedes-Benz and Virgil Abloh are working on a collaboration.

The German automaker has tapped the creative services of the Ghanaian-American multi-hyphenate to create a “limited-edition artwork” that will be revealed to the world on September 8. Fingers are crossed that it's a fire take on the inimitable Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon. But no matter what the final product looks like, we're certain of one thing — it's gonna have an insane soundsystem.
