On this episode of The Dropcast, hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon open up with a look at some of the latest in sneakers, including Brain Dead's garden-inspired Reebok collab and the newest YEEZY Boost 380 that looks like a Fruity Pebble.

Then we shift to the importance of supporting Black Trans Lives and the ongoing protests around the world continuing the fight for social justice. After outlining some action steps people can take, we tackle the two biggest news stories of the week: Matthew Williams' appointment as creative director at Givenchy and Kanye West's upcoming YEEZY cosmetics line, which will purportedly include toothpaste. Listen to the episode to hear speculation about what it tastes like.
