Editor’s Notes: Jeff Staple’s original "Pigeon" Nike SB Dunk was released in 2005 and, to this day, remains one of the most significant sneaker release events in history. A black version followed in 2017, and now Staple and Nike SB are set to drop a China-inspired new Dunk, the "Panda Pigeon."

The new collab was initially teased by Staple on his Instagram account back in December. Originally only a sample, fans clamored for its release. The 2019 model pays homage to Staple's Chinese roots and features a black and white upper with a pigeon embroidered on the heel.

"SAMPLE NOT FOR RESELL" is written on the lining, with "SAMPLE" customized to read "STAPLE." Neon green laces and Nike branding on the tongue and heel complete the shoe, along with a green insole printed with a pigeon and bamboo design. Check out product shots of the sneaker in detail below.
