After providing a teaser shot last week, Size? and Staple Design have unveiled the upcoming New Balance 577 “Black Pigeon”.

In the beginning there were three pigeons; one grey, one white and one black in colour. When they were ready, the grey and white pigeons left the roost on their journey to explore their surroundings, the city of New York and the challenges it would bring. The Black Pigeon, however, was the outcast of the family. Kicked out of the nest for being too down-low and dirty he decided to travel the world, setting his mind on eventually meeting up with his elder siblings in The Big Apple. But on his quest, the Black Pigeon became lost. After a long flight, the youngest of the three pigeon brothers set himself down, only he wasn’t in New York; this was London.

For the third installment of the famed collaboration series between Staple Design and New Balance we enter the design process, adding our spin on one of New Balance’s most iconic silhouettes with the release of the 577 ‘Black Pigeon’. Celebrating 30 years of manufacturing at New Balance’s UK factory in Flimby, Cumbria, the size? x Staple Design x New Balance 577 utilises a mixture of handpicked premium materials throughout. With the ‘Black Pigeon’ toughened up on his travels, the shoe features a heavy-duty construction with a honeycombed Ripstop Nylon toe-box and robust leather paneled upper. Not forgetting the creature comforts, a soft pink felt lines the inner and adds extra warmth.

The size? x Staple Design x New Balance 577 ‘Black Pigeon’ will be available in limited numbers from size? Carnaby Street, Paris, Manchester, Covent Garden, Liverpool, Leeds, Brighton, Bristol, Birmingham, Glasgow, Nottingham and online on Saturday 17th November 2012.
