Igniting the hype, the “Black Pigeon” returns — this time in a high top look. Presented by Relevant Customs to Jeff Staple during his book signing at Philly’s streetwear foothold UBIQ, the shoes pay homage to the original design which resurfaced last November. The runners get a black cracked leather treatment sitting on top of iconic red soles. To mark the occasion in the City of Brotherly Love, pony fur is added on the pigeon wings.
Unfortunately, if you were hoping to cop a pair, these were gifted as one of one’s, but watch the UBIQ recap below and be sure to check out our sneaker drop roundup for similar kicks. In case you missed it, listen to Episode 06 of Business of HYPE hosted by Staple.
?FLOCK WITH US. Another Relevant Customs instant classic. If you were lucky enough to be @ubiqlife this past Tuesday you might have seen us present these to @jeffstaple during his book signing. We came up with the concept and payed homage to the original design by adding our Relevant touch. Cracked leather was used to represent the texture of the city while pony fur was implemented to mimic a pigeons wings.
