Jeff Staple collaborations perfectly exemplify the ‘quality, not quantity’ idiom. It’s not often we see Jeff Staple team up with a major sneaker brand, but when he does, the term ‘instant classic’ can be attributed. Jeff’s clothing brand ‘Staple’ is the exact opposite of a misnomer, and his famed ‘pigeon’ motif has resulted in some highly-coveted gems like the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Pigeon’ and a duet of New Balance 575s. Much to the satisfaction of sneakerheads worldwide, Staple will once again team up with New Balance – this time on the 577 model. Will it feature the Pigeon graphic once again, or will Staple divert into another direction? The salmon pink color seen here could indicate the return of the unofficial bird of NYC. Check out the teaser below and let us know what you think.
