In the latest installment of The Come Up, the Staple Design-founder reveals that the shoe was really just a rejected “Black Pigeon” sample that he found when he was moving offices. After posting a photo of the shoe, accompanied by a panda and pigeon emoji, jeff received a call from Nike. The sportswear giant told him to take down the post so they could answer all the calls for a release.
jeffstaple notes that after some tweaking, the shoe is now ready, and acts as his way of paying homage to China; the shoe brings together the panda, the unofficial mascot of China, and the pigeon, the unofficial mascot of New York. Additionally, Nike and jeffstaple are set to reveal release details for the SB Dunk Low “Panda Pigeon” January 5.
