The Next Nike SB “Pigeon Dunk” Features Newspaper Headlines
The resurgence of the SB Dunk movement can be credited to Nike’s careful revival of past icons, executed in a manner as to not step on toes of the legendary OGs. In 2018, we saw Nicky Diamonds deliver three new “Diamond” takes on the shoe, while Concepts added their own flavor with the Purple and Green Lobster Dunks earlier this month. Jeff Staple, whose Pigeon Dunks saw a sequel of its own in late 2017, recently teased a third chapter of the Pigeon saga, which skate legend Eric Koston fully revealed on his Instagram. The next Pigeon Dunks will feature the familiar NYC-inspired avian mascot on the heel, with a simple white/black upper accented by green on the NIKE logo on the heel. However, this upcoming release will feature translucent outsoles that reveal a mosaic of newspaper snippets that recall the headlines garnered by the infamous release event in 2005. A release date hasn’t been revealed, but expect an update soon.
