The Panda Pigeon
Releasing soon is the SB Dunk Low Pro Panda Pigeon set to drop on January 15th at 10:00 AM EST.
Creative “Mistakes” can yield the best surprises, and sometimes, they even result in some awesome sneakers. So when designer Jeff Staple was moving offices, he went on Instagram and posted an early sample of the “Black Pigeon” Nike SB Dunks. The shoe had “test” colors — black, white, and green — which he jokingly compared to a “Panda.” Sneakerheads around the world started begging for the shoe to become a reality.
Here’s the reality…
In collaboration with Jeff Staple, the Panda Pigeon colorway is a previously rejected sample. This is the third official Pigeon release, and the fourth time the Pigeon has been featured on an SB Dunk. The white and black silhouette features green bamboo graphic on the sockliner, hits of reflectivity and graphic on the outsole paying tribute to the newspaper headlines after the infamous first SB Pigeon launch. The ‘SAMPLE’ stamp on the collar typically found on early versions has been altered to read ‘STAPLE’
