Release details for the Nike SB Dunk Pigeon have been released. According to Sneaker News, the shoes are scheduled to drop on Saturday, November 11.
No additional information has been revealed just yet but keep an eye out on Straatosphere for more information.
Sneaker designer Jeff Staple has taken to Instagram to tease a possible Nike SB Dunk Pigeon re-release.
The Instagram post featured a sample tag for a pair of size nine Nike shoes. In addition, the Looksee tag states that the sample was completed sometime in April 2017.
The obscure tag has led sources to believe that Staple is looking to release a high-top iteration of the sneakers sometime over the Christmas season this year.
The news is exciting, especially since Jeff Staple’s original Pigeon Dunks were considered to be one of the most noteworthy sneaker collaborations of all time.
The sneaker, launched 2005, was known as the Nike Dunk SB Low “NYC Pigeon”. Only 150 pairs were released that year. The limited edition shoes are now considered to be a deadstock (what’s a deadstock?), with prices on StockX going up to US$7,000 (approx. S$9,513) for a pair.
But that’s all the info we have for now. Sit tight and stay tuned for updates.
