The Pigeon Dunk which was designed by Staple Design could be considered one of the most infamous sneakers in the sneaker culture due it the riots it caused in New York when it was launched. Staple Design will once again be using the “Pigeon” colorway on a new sneaker he is developing with New Balance. Utilizing the New Balance 575 model, this sneaker features a grey/pink/white colorway as well as a pigeon embroidered on the back heel. Unfortunately there is yet actual pictures of the shoes but for now, enjoy this catalog preview.
Oki-Ni is pleased to present Hederus for K-Swiss. The work of rising design star Julia Hederus, this new limited edition footwear collection is inspired by the style of K-Swiss wearing Hackney youth’s – who each add unique stylistic twists to their outfits. Hederus’s work has already drawn favourable comparisons with the ‘clean and clever’ approach of Belgian menswear futurists, whilst her minimal yet subtly playful approach also carries distinct echoes of the Japanese school. Due for release in June 2008 at www.oki-ni.com.
Here is a look at an upcoming pair of New Balance 574’s dubbed “Almond” or “For Love or Money”. Right off the bat, you will notice the “For Love or Money” phrase being used in the sneaker’s design by its sharp pink, luxurious green and shiny silver colorway. Lush suede as well as metallic leather is used to create an contrasting effect. Smaller details include the star lace holes and the “For Love or Money” embroidery.
These will be available at Mita Sneakers on April 1st.
