The second chapter in Staple Design‘s New Balance program is starting to roll into retailers. Giving the now iconic pigeon theme another go, the M575J is overlaid with a white and off-white based color up, rather than the traditional darker grey. Limited to 1000 pairs, the sneaker will be released in selected accounts worldwide on August 18th.
Detailed images of the Staple x New Balance M575J “White Pigeon”, along with a full dealer list follow after the flip.
