My pal Jeff Staple is becoming a legend, if he isn’t one already. He’s an innovator, and really should need no introduction. He’s been shaking up the sneaker world with global collaborations, innovations and sick design for a long time. His legendary Nike Pigeon Dunks are still floating around eBay with $3000 price tags years later– and they caused riots around the world. He just (proudly) announced his collaboration with New Balance, the Pigeon 575 shown here– and we’re very excited for him. This time around there are 650 available globally. Interested in what else he has been up to and what the Pigeon means (other than crap on your sidewalk)? His Interview with Sneaker Freaker is fantastic, check it out.

He says “remember it’s only a sneaker.” We say keep calm and carry on. More pictures after the jump.
