Jeff Staple is the sort of record holder when it comes to sneaker lineups, his initial ‘Pigeon’ release of old famously causing quite the commotion, including police escorts and lurking thugs, when it hit the streets of NYC. You probably don’t need to expect that sort of mayhem for the upcoming New Balance 577 ‘Black Pigeon’ produced in conjunction with Size?, but they’re definitely gonna be a tough get regardless. Fortunately Staple is raffling off a free pair, and all you’ve gotta to do enter is pick up the slick ‘Black Pigeon’ shirt from Staple. Click through for a peek at the sneakers and the shirt and enter the raffle now through Reed Space.

Staple Design x Size? x New Balance 577 “Black Pigeon”

November 7th, 2012 by | 3 comments

staple x size x new balance 577 black pigeon Staple Design x Size? x New Balance 577 Black Pigeon

Jeff Staple’s contributions to the modern wave of sneakerhead culture cannot be understated, his legendary ‘Pigeon’ Dunk Low SB collaboration a watershed moment in the 21st century movement that cemented New York’s sneaker capital status and Nike SB’s street cred, and created a sense of excitement the likes of which so many designers have sought to replicate.  Staple himself has revisited the Pigeon theme a number of times, including thrice now with New Balance, who’ve released different color bases on different classic running silhouettes in 2008, ’09 and now coming up in just over a week.

The Staple Design x Size? x New Balance 577 ‘Black Pigeon’ makes good on a teaser image we saw one week less than one year ago today that had until this point been without a follow-up of any kind.  The color and materials appear identical after the long break, but we can see now that the tongue embroidery has been altered to reflect the version three-ness of this latest Staple New Bal collabo.  A bit too “low-down and dirty” to fit in with the rest of the Pigeon clan, this delayed NB577 touches down in London to celebrate the Flimby Factory’s 30th birthday at select Size? locations in the UK and Paris, along with their e-store starting next Saturday, November 17th. Also for stateside heads they will of course be up for grabs at Staple’s own Reed Space in NYC. We’re heading into a serious heatwave on the verge of the holiday shopping season, so have a closer look below and let us know how these compare to both Staple’s earlier (NB) collaborations as well as your other rapidly approaching options.

What happens when one of the kings of the color-swap custom movement is called upon to appropriate a colorway that’ll forever be known for the ruckus its limited numbers caused?  Right off the bat, when it’s a Mache Custom, you know the work is going to be expertly crafted.  And in the case of this Air Jordan III ‘Pigeon’ custom created for San Diego Chargers DB/PR Marcus Gilchrist, the only violence might be a few broken necks, as Mache has declared this request will remain a 1 of 1.  We have more photos of how Mache transformed 2007′s loosely nicknamed ‘Cool Grey’ AJ3s into something that captures the essence of Jeff Staple’s legendary ‘Pigeon’ Dunk SB; where do these rank in the relatively large and still growing collection of ‘Stapled’ customs?

Air Jordan VI ‘Pigeon’ Customs by Impeccable Scoop

The Air Jordan VI and Nike Air Max 90 have shared the signature Infrared shade for over two decades now, and as of today they have even more in common than just losing to Air Jordan XI originals in our last two March Madness tournaments.  The latest of a disproportionately large run of color swaps that show you how welcoming the Six’ leather builds are for customizers, this new Air Jordan VI ‘Pigeon’ by Impeccable Scoop adds another connection by also utilizing this Jeff Staple-inspired colorway made famous on the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Pigeon’.  So not only will these now be in the discussion of which AJ6 customs have been the best to date, but there’s also an argument to make about whether Mizzee’s AM90s out-Pigeon’d Impeccable’s AJVI.  Be the judge when you click through to see more angles, and hit up the designer to get your hands on a pair from this limited run.

Staple x New Balance 577 – Teaser

November 14th, 2011 by | 1 comment

staple new balance 575 teaser b Staple x New Balance 577   Teaser

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.
