Typically speaking one would think that pumas and pigeons would not be the best of friends in the animal world. It appears the same is not the case in the sneaker world as photos have popped up via TSG of Jeff Staple’s most recent sneaker collaboration. The model of choice looks to be the Puma Clyde and the look will be familiar to many. This rendition of the Clyde is the closest match to the original Pigeon Nike Dunk Low SB that we have seen from Staple designs since that riot inducing release. The shoes are made up of a two tone grey premium suede upper with a pink liner and outsole. The familiar Pigeon sits proudly on the back ankle which is nice to see after its absence on the recent New Balance collaboration with Staple. Will these create the same sort of hype and chaos as the Dunks? Only time will tell. Take a look at the picture below and let me know what you think!

 

Its not often that a designer has so much pull that a mere teaser pic can get me and thousands of others excited. Well Jeff Staple is that designer. His iconic pigeon has made appearances on some of the most coveted and rare sneakers in the game. Another thing I like about him is that he also designs for function, not just form. You see it in various Reed Space items and more. Designers like Ronnie Fieg are definitely inspired by the clean lines DROPPED by Staple over the years. Here we take a look at a teaser pic of the new Staple x New Balance 577 Made in England. The 577 is a great model that has most recently popped up in the Highs and Lows Night and Day Pack. The black body and pink (or is it infrared) highlights definitely look like they could have some more pigeon inspiration and I for one will be anxiously awaiting the full look. His last collab with New Balance was nothing short of awesome (pictured below) and I am sure this DROP will be just as great. Take a look below and get excited! (Pic credit)
