Without the original 2005 'NYC Pigeon', sneaker culture wouldn't be what it is today. Jeff Staple envisioned a shoe to represent his city, and felt the ubiquitous bird did it best. He introduced the shoe at his store Reed Space. Word spread, lines formed, Dunk mania kicked off and sneaker culture was never the same. The shoe itself is one of the ultimate grails. Its long-awaited return has come in time for both the 15th anniversary of the SB Dunk and the 20th anniversary of Staple Design. Jeff Staple presents a blank slate of simple black to "just let the Pigeon be the story", as he puts it. Coming in a pink box as a nod to its original era, the 'Black Pigeon' represents limitless possibilities for the future of sneaker culture.
