If you take a liking to urban menswear, then chances of you recognizing the notorious Staple Pigeon logo are pretty high. From the 150-pair ’05 Nike Dunk Pro SB collab to recent SS14 releases, Staple Clothing has flourished tremendously over the past 15 years of business, and shows no sign of letting up. Alberto Lou, of the Kix Flipped Crew, pays tribute the New York-based brand with a pair of Nike Air Foamposite Ones covered in an olive camouflage pattern, with hints of salmon throughout. The Pigeon logo was a strong influence for the inclusion of the salmon tone, deriving from the soft pink luster of the birds. A green-tinted camo pattern plagues the entire uppers of these shoes, with special highlights of pink that cover the inner lining, tongue and heel tabs, as well as any visible Nike branding. The custom made patches for the heels don images of pigeons in flight and at rest, while the front side additions depict, what appears to be, dove feces. The clean and stark white of the lace holes and mesh interior help contain the busy, hand-painted artwork by Lou! Keep scrolling for some additional photos of these Staple Pigeon Foams now!
