This sneaker is often credited as the release that brought sneaker culture into the mainstream zeitgeist. Designed by Jeff Staple of Staple Design, the 2005 release of this sneaker was perhaps one of the wildest Nike drops in history. When release day came for this pair, a line formed outside of Reed Space, Jeff’s Lower East Side storefront. The crowd grew so large that the New York City Police were called to keep things in order and make sure that lucky purchasers were able to get home safely. The attention on the release made the cover of the New York Post, and to this day remains an extraordinary example of the power of streetwear hype.
The design itself is inspired by the ubiquitous NYC pigeon, with an outsole featuring a pigeon-foot like color, and a pigeon embroidered on the heel.
With only approximately 150 pairs ever produced, this pair – in exceptional condition – is made even more rare as it is signed by Jeff Staple himself.
