In this episode of TSB, Caesar, Geeno, Francis, and Dunks are in-studio.
We begin the show with an email Dunk’s received from Warren Lotas. In it, Warren exhibits a lack of self awareness by acting like some martyr in his court case with Nike, even going as far as offering to send Dunk’s a commemorative “lawsuit” t-shirt and bumper sticker. Some people never learn.
Do brand’s shoulder some of the blame for the sudden rise of knockoffs, and the overall landscape of the resell market, by the way they manufacture hype and demand by limiting product?
Dunks isn’t very good at analogies.
Can brands like Nike and Adidas do a better job of marketing and storytelling? Caesar thinks so. He also feels like this is where the smaller brands, like ASICS, excel.
Apparently, Dunks isn’t the only person on planet earth who likes rice pudding. Also, can you be thugged out from Canada?
We read some of Dunk’s “fan” mail.
Caesar goes in on the Hulu X Mitchell & Ness jersey collab.
Shout out to Sia Collective.
We find out why the “Strawberry Cough” Nike SB Dunks kept getting pushed back this year.
What do people look for when they watch sneaker YouTube? Has it reached its saturation point?
And finally, Caesar and Dave get into a lengthy debate as to whether or not it’s possible to have fun in Cleveland. Seriously, they argue for over 20 minutes.
